Eating Right

Sprouts, fruits n cucumbers,
Violets, yellows n the ambers.
Sugarless coffees,
No more toffees;
I’ve been wanting to lose since November!


Why do all the good things (read: appealing to our taste buds) come expensive, are laborious to cook and sinfully calorieΒ laden?

*Rolling my eyes over*

    Really nice!
    I had been drinking Sugarless coffees for around three years now. Not that hard once you get used to it. Hope you would lose it soon.

      I never liked chocolate anyways.. maybe the white ones or liqueur filled sets me to crave every once a year!
      Besides that none.. 😦

    I just can’t quite make the unsweetened coffee. My compromise is fake sugar. Hmmm. Love the observations and humor here! Blessings on your sugarfree coffee journey.

      I used to do the aspartame till a few years back- not anymore.. too risky.. πŸ™‚
      Besides, it’s all in the mind..

      Glad you liked it here.. thank you for your blessing- Love xxx

    I feel your pain, that’s why I just take the easy lazy rout and hope that somehow my body will get what it needs through divine intervention! Great write!

      I now believe childhood was the best.. not worrying of any weight gain or the common food related health hazards!
      aaah! I wish I knew some tricks πŸ˜‰

    Because if they weren’t you wouldn’t enjoy them so much! Great work on the piece here, I liked it (though the colors were a bit much, all good though!). Thanks for sharing!

      Since it was a short one- I thought to jazz it up with some colors! I have never given to gluttony yet, years of abuse (night shifts, not eating at proper time) has now spelled a doom. I am all set to give it a slack- huh!
      Love xxx

    hahahahha…this is awesome, Olivia!!
    And you know what?! The “sugarless” in white makes it invisible…and THAT makes even more sense… heheheh…too “sweet”, girl!!
    Loved this!!

      Invisible “sugar- less” made it go sweet- lolssss

      That’s right, cutting down on carbs n sugar can make you slack- like I needed any reason to! I meant by my wits here.. πŸ˜€

      Thank you for appreciating- I hope my body too responds thankfully (fruitfully) to this altered life- style!

      Hugs xxx
