A whole pot of cheese sauce would be barbaric. You should put some bacon in it. That'd make it better.
Of course! What was I thinking!
And some scallions -- that gives you greens!
Heh. I read this after I just read all the archives for Hyperbole and a Half, so now I am seeing a cartoon 5yo zoethe

Your inner 5yo and my inner 5yo should never be allowed to meet. Terrible, terrible, apocalyptic things would happen.
(I was HUNGRY on the way home from work, to quiet the 5yo's demand for instant dinner I bought a store-roasted chicken then made a huge salad to go with it.)
That's a pretty good dinner, really.
Yep. And Paleo too :D
It was just the inner 5yo demanding dinner NAO!!! Tasty dinner with chickens! NOWWWWWW!!!
Ah yes, the ADA -- who partner with people like Pepsico and Cadbury-Schweppes.
They're completely wrong on diet -- that amount of carbs is guaranteed to maintain your blood glucose at higher than optimum levels, keep you requiring medication, and set you up for side effects.
You don't need carbs to grow a baby -- you need protein and fats.
I'm not pregnant, but I am a diabetic and I've been much much healthier since I stopped eating most carbs. I doubt if I get as much as 50g/day -- a lot of the time it's close to 20g/day.
This isn't the place to discuss it (not being either of our journals) but if you want to talk, feel free to message me at LJ.
Undereating is not good for you, definitely.
But I have one in my head too!

Re: You're funny. ;)
I think we all do, really.
Lately I've been eating a lot of ranch salads topped with grilled chicken from McDonalds. For a long time I resisted this choice because I was afraid that it wouldn't fill me up but they do, plus I get my veggies.
Salad is surprisingly filling.
I know that voice. ;)
Insatiable, isn't it? ;-)
I have an inner two year old, she stamps her feet and doesn't want to go to work. I also have an inner 13 year old boy who appreciates crass jokes and sniggers whenever I pass a Bimart.
You 13-year-old could snigger with mine every time we pass the warehouse store west of town.
It's called BJ's.
I shit you not.
Ooooh cheese sauce. When in doubt, get some nice french bread and cut it up in rectangles, and some raw veggies - broccoli and cauliflower are ideal. Then you call the cheese sauce "fondue" and dip them into it and eat it. Fantastic comfort food for me...
Not a bad idea, but the inner 5-year-old just wanted a spoon!
As a law student, I'm generally too tired to fight my inner 5 year old. So this conversation in my head ends at "Let's eat the leftover Girl Scout cookies!"
These three boxes probably won't make it past the weekend, if they even make it to it.
And why worry? After all, if you run out of cookies, you can just get takeout!
Law school will kill me. Somehow. It's inevitable.
I was so very lucky when I was going to law school at night and working fulltime: Ferrett cooked. He saved me from myself by having dinner ready every night.
Now I want some thin mints. Alas, I have already brushed my teeth tonight, so they'll have to stay safely in their box until next time.
That's very disciplined of you. Bravo!
"Brushing my teeth" is shorthand for a 45-minute project every night. I do not start it over lightly.
Wow, that sounds complex.
Much of it is waiting time. However, I'll freely give you (and everyone else reading) my best advice to avoid my condition: floss.
This had me laughing aloud in recognition.
Yeah, my inner five-year-old mostly stops at "there's NOTHING I WANNA EEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAT HERE".
Fortunately I went shopping, so there is food in the house.
LOL! I have these arguments on a frequent basis.
It's particularly bad for me on a day like yesterday when circumstances prevented me from getting anything to eat until late. But yes, that 5-year-old is definitely there regularly.
Yesterday I ate a whole (big) bag of dried figs because my inner 5yo wouldn't let me stop... curiously she isn't very interesting in meat.
Mine wanted Cheetos last night, but I sent her to bed instead.
