This morning found me and my handsome son at the Senior Breakfast and Capping Ceremony. It is a wonderful tradition that I have been looking forward to for a long time. I wasn't sure what to expect of breakfast but figured there would be at least some fruit as it was held at a nice convention center.
No Fruit. In fact, nothing edible at all. On my beautifully set table was a plate holding 4 limp pieces of bacon, a pile of reconstituted eggs (sprinkled with parsley), and 2 eggo-style pancakes. Not even an orange slice. Waa! I was really hungry so I tasted the eggs - they tasted like chemicals, no way was I going to touch that bacon, so I ate one pancake, plain, and regretted it immediately. It left an aftertaste of freezer burn in my mouth and dropped like lead in my stomach.
Lesson Learned: Next time I will request a vegan meal and if that isn't possible (or I don't feel brave enough yet) then I will eat in advance. I can't expect other people to be in charge of my health.
