F~O~O~D is my favorite four-letter-word.

I adore everything from vibrant health-producing fruits and veggies filled with fiber and anti-oxidants ~ ripe strawberries, fresh pineapple, gorgeous grapes, grilled asparagus, crunchy carrots, red pepper . . .

To plates of warm and welcoming Southern Comfort ~ Fried Green Tomatoes, Hot Buttered Grits, Red Beans & Rice . . .

To sweet treats and decadent desserts ~ Chocolate Bread Pudding with Warm Bourbon Sauce and Dark Chocolate Lace . . .

Eating is a daily indulgence that adds variety and spice to life.  Being able to eat three times a day makes me happy . . . three times a day.

If I could take a magic pill every day to be healthy, trim, and fit my entire life . . . as long as I did NOT eat or drink anything else . . . I would refuse the pill and order an extra-large pizza.

Better a short life filled with F~O~O~D than an endless stream of days punctuated only by a bitter pill to swallow.  And water to wash it down.

How about you?

You thought you could find happiness
Just over that green hill
You thought you would be satisfied
But you never will . . .

Learn to be still
