Some people think I have really great willpower when it comes to healthy eating, or avoiding unhealthy eating anyway. Actually I just have gluten intolerance. It’s nice though because it keeps me from eating a lot of not-so-great-for-you foods. If I want a donut, I have to put some major effort into tracking one down. And even then it’s usually not very good, so it’s hard to muster the energy to try more than once every, oh, year or so.
Today I worked on my feet for 7 some hours with a vast tray of fresh donuts staring me in the face. I don’t like to picture what would have happened had my old friend gluten intolerance not been there. Now, if the bossman made rice crispie (which by unfortunate successful experimentation have proven to be gluten-free-enough for me) treats this evening, despite how un-vegan they are, I might not fare as well tomorrow. Willpower? Not so much.
