Like a totem, Sphinxie? The spirit of creamy green avacadoness to guide you across the treacherous terrain to sugar-freedom? I like it!
Mine is the cashew.
Ode to You, Cashew
O, mighty cashew!
Benevolent, and good.
You stand next to me,
where Snickers once stood.
You steer me from danger,
from waffles, from Rolos.
And keep me a stranger,
to the sugar in all of those
empty and vacuous foods I once needed.
I'd binge, and I'd cry, and then after I'd beated
and berated myself for my weakness and glut,
I'd feed M&Ms to my inner sugar-slut.
O! The hangovers, the shame!
The furtive night munching.
It was sugar to blame,
on cashews I'm now lunching!
Time to go make some sugar-free friendly snacks to bring to the family Thanksgiving gathering.
odd-ducks, that's it. It's official. I love you.
