I like my veggie burgers with potato chips. It’s an awful habit my sister got me into when we were pre-teen. Hamburgers are fatty enough for me to do without them, but veggie burgers-not fatty, salty, greasy enough. I used to be able to buy a 50 cent (I actually am old enough to remember 25 cent) single serving bag of chips. This would be 150 calories. They phased that out a few years ago, now I have to buy 2.5 servings, 99 cents, 330 calories. I now buy Sun Chips instead of Lays, on the pathetic hope that the few extra grams of fiber makes them healthier. I resent them not making these smaller bags. Tonight I actually threw some of them out, maybe 1/3 of them? I resent having to buy food just to throw it out. It’s not like it sat in the fridge going bad before I got to it. I can’t have potato chips in the house and not eat them. That and ice cream. Probably anything salty and greasy and crunchy would give me problems. I can always make popcorn, but not so greasy, thus not so attractive an option. This is the first time ever that I’ve thrown out chips. I am going to check the natural food store for a 99 cent bag of chips that’s just one serving. Can it really be that NOBODY makes them?
Today I charley-horsed all through yoga, and teacher said it can be potassium. Or, more likely, the sodium-potassium balance. Funny, for some reason I thought citrus had a lot of potassium, but it doesn’t. I eat a bunch of potassium decent foods, but I will have to be better about this, since I eat some really strong sodium foods. Middle age is so much less forgiving than youth.
