Ever since the experience I’ve had consuming thoughts of food. As soon as I finish breakfast I ask, “What’s for lunch?”
Constantly worried that there won’t be anything to eat which will leave me hungry.
This week I made lentils for the first time in a VERY long time. Lentils were a staple food item while in Challenger and although I really appreciated their protein factor and that I got a whole two cups of them per week…never do I crave lentils.
My entire time in the desert was food focused. We were basically starving kids…no fresh fruits or veggies unless the one onion and a couple potatoes privided over the 86 day stay counts…they counted then but looking back…it was pitiful.
Chocolate cake, ice cream, pie.
Twinkies, Pringles, burgers, fries…
I could die,
Consuming thoughts of food.
I surprise myself in that I don’t take multiple pictures of my food and post on Instagram like so many people. Above is a photo I took of this amazing soup from dinner in Barcelona. Simple and amazing…if I were back in the desert today…this would be in my food dreams along with some Ample Hill ice cream (located in Brooklyn link here!).
Now, I am off to get some fried chicken for lunch…
