In Pairs If You Please

16 May

Sure everyone knows about food rules that are about calories, or cheat days, or good vs bad foods to eat but what about food rules that are about portion? And no I don’t mean portion like half your plate should be veg, a quarter of your plate protein and a quarter or less some sort of starch. I mean something weirder than that, I mean things like…

…certain foods are always eaten in pairs

Yup. Pairs. I don’t know if this is just me but certain foods I always eat in pairs. shrug. It’s such a habit now I don’t even think about it.

The two most common foods I do this with are toast and cookies lol 😛

Mmm carbs!

Mmm carbs!

When I make toast I always make two pieces and if I am grabbing a cookie I always grab two.

Every now and then I will make one piece of toast in an attempt to be healthier but I inevitably go back to making two pieces in a day or so. And well, I don’t think I ever try to take just one cookie, that would be weird an un-natural lol 😉

I’ve got some other random food quirks, for instance, if I am drinking a cold drink not from a bottle or can I use a straw. Foods like grapes, or pieces of cheese or anything that is individual like that I always eat in even numbers…um, I chew food an even numbered amount of times before swallowing…hmm, I can’t think of any others right now but I’m sure there are more!

Anybody else got any odd food rules? I can’t be the only one…right?

    I always liked apple pie with a piece of cheddar cheese – now that I don’t eat pie, I eat slices of apple with a side of cheese. A grilled cheese sandwich HAS to have sliced raw onion on it to taste right!

      Mmm, I love apples and cheese! When I used to eat Kraft Dinner I had to have a glass of milk with it lol and I totally agree about the onion on a grilled cheese sandwich! Lol
