Here is today’s try
Occasionally thinking about food to eat
choosing, avoiding raw or boiling
living without wheat or meat or
dairy makes you weak
chasing, counting calories or carbs
preserving or picking on priceless pounds
Go, find the fat that is healthy
find the food that is pure and fresh
no harm should be made to those who
farm it, or to nature or environment
Listening to all the food experts talking
reading about nutrition, using an app
not possible the understand contradiction
all different depending on person
what is best for me?
Know what not to eat
(try finding something at a café, that’s not made from wheat)
So, you don’t find the food that matches all your wishes
you choose not to eat until you do
try working when you are grumpy
feeling weaker and the brain doesn’t do what it should
Rushing to a Supermarket
(let’s hope it is clean)
searching for the righteous dish
Bananas? Fair Trade? No, then no thanks, not for me
Fish? Not from Safe Sea Life fishing? Sorry not today.
Vegetable juice? Sugar added, preservatives, citric acid.
Not possible for me.
I am so hungry! What to do?
A small bag of organic basil seed, it seems safe.
I bring it home,
plant the seeds
Ha, ha. I am just kidding! I couldn’t wait until the basil is grown. I need to chase food somewhere else. (And I actually do eat meat, but it was kind of fun it rhymed with eat and wheat, which I don’t eat)
I wish you a great, great day!
