Ode to Healthy Eating

Oh, health food
How conflicted I am
How confused

You are better for me
Yet, you taste so awful


Shocking
how reduced fat nilla wafers
taste like cardboard
they are not sweet


Shocking
how real nilla wafers
taste like a box of sunshine


Macaroni and Cheese
is comfort
so yummy
so perfectly cheesy
and yet
the skinny people
tell me you are evil
I do not believe it
I will never leave your side
I've got the blue box blues


Popcorn with no butter
Who wants you?
You are dry
You have no flavor
You are incomplete

Last night
I had a turkey sandwich
on whole wheat bread
with a cup of fat free yogurt
I finished it
And I was still starving


Why healthy food? Why?

If your are so good for me

Why don't you taste good?
