May Stats – Part II: Food

It’s that time again. I am here to share with you all the amazing unhealthy things I ate last month. I will say that I am lacking on preparing a home cooked meal. There are many factors. I really have no time. Okay, I do. I just am lazy when I get home. I cook food for about 1800 kids (now, only 1100) every morning. No one wants to spend all day cooking at work, get home and cook more. It’s unheard of. Plus, it’s hard to cook for just one person. I tend to make too much food and rather than saving it for leftovers, I over indulge myself, licking the plate clean. Gluttony at its best.

My fridge is barren. It does have the essentials all good bachelors need. I have my ketchup and miracle whip bottle. I have the pizza box (with one slice still lingering inside), the soda, the beer, and block of processed cheese. I live the good life. It would be a crime if I ever decided to get married and have kids. We’ll stave. But if my wife is a homebody, then she can do the cooking and we’ll probably have food with names I cannot pronounce and textures not seen by many.

Looking back at the year and everything I have ate, it’s basically the same shit over and over again. I said I hate change. When I find something I like, I stick with it. No need to go and be adventurous. It’s too much of a hassle and I am not a “on a whim” kind of guy. Not saying I don’t do things on a whim. I do. Just not very often. But you’re probably asking yourself right now, “so, Kirk. What did you eat last month? All your readers are dying to know. Please! Please, tell us!”

There is the stats for the month of May. I say it about everytime I finish with the stats but I really do need to learn to eat better. I can’t say I try cause I don’t. But you never know. Maybe after this month, I will. I am planning on doing a half way point tally of what I have ate the entire year so far. I don’t know if it will be done but it’s an idea I have. That will take some time. Just keep watching the site. You never know. It might show up.

There you go, kiddies! Another month down. Only 9 more to go. I should really try to eat healthier. Maybe start packing a lunch to work again. I did that once. I tried to eat better but when I did, this happened. Maybe cut the snacking out. Hmm… I don’t know. I like food to much. I do plan when I hit 6 months, to tally up everything I ate so far. Then at the end of the year, do it again. I am a very unhealthy person when it comes to food. Oh well. It’s all good.

There you have it, folks! Month two of what I have ate this year. Oh, the asterisk by “Goulash” is there for a reason. My mother likes to call it, Hamburger Italianio. We’ll call it goulash and she gets upset. It’s the same thing! I am hoping to post another ‘chef john’ video soon. I was quite surprised to see so many videos of people making beef lo mein. Some questions for you,

  1. What should I tone down on eating?
  2. What other places do you recommend?
  3. Should I watch what I eat?
  4. Should I watch what I drink?
  5. Cut back on coffee?
  6. Cut back on soda?
