The Spousal Sabotage is Real Over Here

The Spousal Sabotage was tri-fold yesterday. First he brought home bagels for breakfast. Believe it or not, I prefer toast most of the time hence this Food for Life sprouted bread toasted nice and crispy with avocado, lox and EBTB seasoning. But I also love bagels sometimes. They’re part of life, especially as a New Yorker.

We headed out for a walk with the kids and naturally after it was time for a latte so we hit this super cute place The Karmic Grind and the unplanned food tour seemed to start there. Then we found an amazing artisanal pizza place for lunch. If you’re in the area, shout out to It Bagel and Pizza for their thin crust pies and bagels. My friend said their salads are the best but I didn’t know that until later so next time!

Well then there was an açaí place next door, Sobol, and that’s not even my thing but it’s the peanut butter on top that really gets me. Put PB on anything and it’s happening. They also sell Laurel’s Butter there but they didn’t have the plain which is my fav and the main reason I went inside. I could not leave empty handed though!

After heading home and spraining my ankle while walking the dog (it apparently happens when you’re drunk on pizza and peanut butter), our friend unexpectedly dropped off Sicilian slices from Spumoni Gardens but the Chinese food was already on the way. And if you check out my stories you will see what happened there 😂 🥡🥢.

Needless to say, I love food and instead of hating on myself or the Bear’s #spousalsabotage, I enjoyed it, laughed about it, and appreciate days like this because I know it’s an enjoyable part of life and rarely happens. Food is an activity and hobby too and I’ll be the first to admit that eating is not always just to fuel your body.

The rebound is pretty natural now as in when I eat differently or too much, I don’t feel great and I WANT to get back to my norm ASAP. This is one of the most essential foundations in my work with clients. I know it sounds hard but it’s very possible to get there with time and it’s the key to living a happy healthy sustainable way of life without the extremes and guilt and drastic fluctuations and chaos.
