When your craving is so specific, you know it's a serious one that can't be simply diverted with some celery or carrot snacks.
Heh, noodles it is then! To make it less sinful, I rummaged through the fridge, chopped up some of my favourite greens to add to the noodles, and there I have it, a truly veggie-filled spicy noodle soup.
It may have been chock full of sodium and empty calories, but at least I also got in a very healthy portion of vitamins, nutrients and fibre. Not to mention that satisfaction of a mad craving. Priceless.
No regrets. :D
|Late night indulgence|
Eating well has never really been a huge problem for me. I love my vegetables since I was a child, and don't always need meat, so most days my meals are rather light. My diet is 70% clean and generally wholesome, and I (thankfully) have a nonexistent sweet tooth so it isn't tough at all for me to resist sweets - the truth is, the hard part is often in how not to appear rude when I decline sweets offered, like, I'm not even trying to pretend to be good, but I really don't fancy cakes and pastries.
That said, I do have quite a "spicy/salty" tooth, and do occasionally indulge in savoury junk food - cue chips, fries, curry puffs and instant noodles (especially those of the spicy variety). Essentially, I am quite the carb fiend.
I don't feel too guilty about it - it's all about moderation and balance after all: I work out and maintain an active lifestyle, and I eat instinctively most of the time, having learnt to listen to my body for what it needs, both in exercising as well as what I feed it for substenance. As I get older, I do find that I'm naturally increasingly inclined towards whole and unprocessed foods as well - those naughty treats may still be enjoyable, but somehow just don't taste as good anymore, and I actually crave them much less often that I used to. I'd like to think it's a reflection of the palate getting more refined and discerning on what truly taste good - natural, fresh organic fare, as opposed to the highly processed junk in well, junk. But once in a few months, that craving still strikes, so when that happens, I just go with it. And it's perfectly fine.
Although, I did make up for the noodles by doing an extra workout the next day, so all good. Like I said, it's about balance. :p
|Happy plate! :)|
