My One Remaining Food VICE — Mediterranean Spinach Swirls (A Variant Of ‘Spanakopita’).

by Anura Guruge



Alas, my supposed restraint when it comes to food still has its limits. I can’t, however hard I try, stop eating these $3 Mediterranean Spinach Swirls from Market Basket. HELP.

It really is killing me — slowly but surely.

Who would have thought that this would end up as my one remaining VICE when it came to food.

Yes, I confess, that maybe once a month, if she grudgingly lets me, I will eat 4 – 5 teaspoons of Teischan’s leftover ice cream (with any chocolate sauce that is lurking around) at a restaurant.

That is it in terms of sweets for the last 6 years (i.e., since January 22, 2013). No cake, no pies, no chocolates, no muffins, no donuts, no ice cream, no cheesecake, no cookies … And I love chocolates, pecan pie, apple pie and ice cream.

I stopped eating nuts 10-weeks ago. And I LOVE nuts.

I drastically cut back on cheese 10-weeks ago. I could live on cheese. I now have a bit every few days.

I dramatically cut back on food 10-weeks ago. I have lost xx pounds in the last 10-weeks. SMILE. Not telling you how much. I am moderately pleased. IF I can lose another 10 pounds I would be orgasmic.

So, during the last 10-weeks these spinach swirls have been my ONLY WEAKNESS! Honest.

Who would have thought. SPINACH — BAD FOR YOU.

Over the last decade I have really acquired a taste for spinach. I eat a LOT of spinach — in multiple forms.

Spinach is said to be good for you.

But, these $3 spinach swirls I eat are killing me. I would be better eating chocolate donuts.

Even the guy at Market Basket, who makes them, told me that they are BAD for ME! 500 calories each.

I have CUT BACK — over the last 10-weeks.

I used to eat 3 every 10-days or so. Sometimes 2 a day. It was KILLING I.

Then 10-weeks ago, I went nearly a month without eating even one. It killed me.

Then I started cheating. One every few weeks.

I had one TODAY — which I bought yesterday.

It is killing.

I am SO ashamed!

This is bad.

I wish I had more control over my diet.

DAMN!

Oh … what happened 10-weeks ago.

That was when I had my knee surgery and discovered my blood sugar had SHOT UP to 103! 103! Damn.

Not good. I am
