For those keeping score, we are now onto Rule #6 of the Retro Weight Watchers program guidelines overview. And I can't even contain my excitement about this one...
RULE #6 - Unlimited Vegetables. You may eat all you want of the following vegetables:
mung bean sprouts
I'm sorry. But when someone tells me I can "EAT ALL I WANT" of something, I just get really REALLY happy. I don't even care what it is. For example -- just the other night, I ate 2 entire bunches of celery just because I could. I am not even kidding. I have been known to polish off an entire jar of kosher pickles in one sitting. Seriously. Two-pound bag of frozen broccoli? Bring it. Gigantic vat of french green beans? No problem.
I am what the experts call a "volume eater". That is a label I wear with pride.
So my love for vegetables comes in really handy. In fact, one time I even wrote a blog post about my undying love for celery. Luckily my body is well-trained and can handle mass quantities of cruciferous vegetables and soluble fiber without any negative consequences. If you cannot say the same for yourself, I would recommend you tread lightly when it comes to this rule. It takes time to work up to the super-human level of digestive prowess which I have achieved.
To celebrate the joy of unlimited vegetable consumption, I made myself a heaping bowl of bean sprout soup today. You know, it's just chicken broth mixed with a can of bean sprouts. What's that you say? Oh you don't think that sounds very good?
COME ON! IT'S FREAKING UNLIMITED, PEOPLE!!!!
YOU CAN EAT AS MUCH AS YOU WANT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!!!
SUCK IT DOWN!!!!
SUCK IT DOWN!!!!
Sorry. I got crazy excited for a second there. Anyway...Here is a super appetizing picture of my Bean Sprout Soup. You should totally try it!
|That's a full pound of sprouts, baby.|
I'm curious....What's your favorite "unlimited vegetable" on the list, and how will you prepare it this week?
