Drawbacks to Not Buying Junk Food   Leave a comment

Ugh. Days like today almost make me regret that we rarely buy junk food to keep at home. Ever have those days when all you want to do when you get home from work is cuddle up on the sofa with something labor-free, salty (or sweet if that’s your junk food preference), and a little bit greasy? Well this past work day was like that for me. But we were good this week and we have no real junk food in the house. That’s not always the case, occasionally we have chips; and I almost broke down and bought cheddar bunnies while grocery shopping last weekend.

Since most of the time that a junk food craving hits there’s no junk food in the house, I’ve learned how to fake it or just wait a craving out. Today a small bowl of the roasted salted sunflower seeds that we keep for salads, and a few slivers of Drunken Goat cheese sufficed. I suppose since “roasted” nuts and seeds are actually fried, the sunflower seeds could be considered a true junk food. Until I figure out how to make our own dry-roasted salted nuts and seeds, though, I don’t consider them to be junk.
