It is not often a trip we make, being rather expensive (and for sure, rather calorie laden) but it is a popular locale when we have something to celebrate. And, to be fair, their cheesecakes are rather good.
I got my usual go to flavor for anything: Vanilla (I am kind of unremarkable that way). It arrived laden with its customary two dollops of real whipped cream. I looked at there, shimmering under the light, before I dug in. After all, it did not look that big and it taste pretty good.
Right until about 1 AM, when my stomach, which has apparently been enjoying the attempts to eat better, declared that it was rather quite done with this excursion in culinary desserts and decided to keep me up - more or less than the rest of the night.
This was not something that I had anticipated.
Yes, I have been making conscious efforts in this area. I would in no wise say that I am "clean", but I am making a sincerely attempt to eat better: I am trying for less processed foods overall and more (for lack of a better word) "honest" food - such as cutting out protein bars to find protein closer to the source. But I hardly anticipated the reaction I had last night. Needless to say, I will not be having a high fat high sugar dessert in the near future.
Two lessons here:
1) When you make a commitment to eating better, there is such a thing as not being able to go back.
2) Looking forward to possibly disruption of any food supply, there are bound to issues. Best to both be mindful of them and practice more and more of getting non-processed food into the body - before it becomes unavailable.
