This is the perfect time to blog. I just carb loaded and feel uncomfortably full. So I’ve taken a fond interest in my couch. And watching Glee. Sh*t, I love that show. If I had a dream, it would be to be on that show. And be good at dancing and singing. Instead, I sometimes sing karaoke and go to bars and dance, and look like an drunken mess, when really I am the only sober person there. I always wonder why guys don’t hit on me at the bars…maybe I should take a step back and think about that one more time…
Anyways, I’ve been craving carbs lately. I’m pretty in-tune with my body at this point and know exactly what I need more of at times. And recently, I’ve needed more carbs. My last craving stage was nut butters. My body wanted fat. Thank gosh I got that stage under control. I’m not really allowed to have nut butters anymore. I do, but I shouldn’t. Dumb. But my carb cravings have turned out pretty delicious. I’ve been getting down on a lot of sweet potatoes. In any form. I’ve had mashed sweet potatoes, cinnamon dusted sweet potato chips, bacon greased-cubed sweet potatoes, and lots of dark chocolate. Oops, how did that get in there. So today was exactly the same. I ran a mile and tried to keep up with Jason. Terrible idea. Had to lie in the fetal position for a while afterward in order not to vomit. Fun sh*t. So once I got home, I obviously needed to stuff my face with carbs. I mean fill glycogen stores. That’s exactly what I was thinking about….glycogen stores…yeahhhh. So in the carb deprived state of mind I was in, I threw together bacon, sweet potatoes, and spaghetti squash. Seemed right. And it was. I started off with a small plate full….then had 3 more…until it was gone. Nice, Juli. I may have eaten a sweet potato that fell on the floor, but I’m not admitting to anything.
- 4-6 pieces of uncured bacon, diced
- 1 large sweet potato, diced
- 2 cups leftover roasted spaghetti squash
- This may be hard to follow, but bare with me.
- Add diced bacon and sweet potato to a large skillet. Cover to cook.
- Cook until bacon is half way cooked, then add spaghetti squash.
- Cook until sweet potatoes are soft and bacon is cooked.
- Consume. And smile a lot.
