"Eat Well, Stay Fit, Die Anyway"

But Vegetables Are the Enemy… Aren’t They?

Starting at midnight tonight, Shari-Anne has challenged me to consume nothing but fruit, veggies, and water for 24 hours. That means no breads, no beer, and worst of all… no coffee. I was okay with this until this morning, when I realized that she also meant no meat. I doublechecked and sure enough, the consumption of meat wasn’t inferred (as I always think it is).

I’m not sure if I’ll make it, but at least my will is up-to-date, and perhaps even with my limited energy due to lack of meat-goodness, I’ll be able to dictate tomorrow’s post to a nurse who can type it out for me. With just over 12 hours to go before the challenge begins, I must mentally prepare myself to wage war against the food that my food eats. The first few hours will be the hardest, and will determine wether vegetables are friend or foe to my body…
The Eternal Struggle...
If all goes well, I’ll live to tell my grandchildren about the day I went head-to-head against vegetables, and came out victorious! Mind you, I’m not likely to live that long given the amount of red meat I eat. It’s just a matter of time before my ticker stops ticking. But I’ve digressed… as usual… bring on the greens!

    You could always refer to the Arrogant Worms song: Screams of the vegetables?
