Day 13 - Take a Tour

I wonder if Vegans are a depressed sort of people.

I absolutely, positively kid you not.  Straight up.  Serious as a heart attack.  I was completely bummed out earlier - mostly because it's Thursday, and I don't have a single date this weekend - and I went to McDonald's.  Before you gasp too loudly now, please be advised that I went with a fish sandwich, which is still on the allowable list.  Anyhow, I wolfed it down, and almost immediately felt better.  And no, the drive-up guy didn't ask me out.  I still have no date.  NO DATE.  But, my entire mood changed and now I'm okay.

I think I'm going to have to watch "Supersize Me" again and see what Morgan Spurlock has to say about this.

Anyhow, let's consult the book for our daily dose of wisdom:

"Call your local health food store and sign up for a store tour. After your tour, buy one new product that you have never tried before."
Sarah Taylor. Vegan in 30 Days: Get Healthy. Save the World. (Kindle Location 329). Kindle Edition.

Aye aye, Cap'n.  On Saturday, I'm off to Chelan to go to Bear Foods, my favorite health food store.  If I'm lucky, I'll snag some photos for you.  I do, after all, have all day to tour their store - as I have NO DATE on Saturday night.

I would like to hear from you, dearest reader, about the whole "depression cured by fast food" issue.  What do you think?  Have you ever noticed anything like this in your own life?


  1. No, depression is not cured by fast food. Fast food makes it worse. I used to go to Rossow's and get a burger, fries, and Dr. Pepper when I was feeling sad. Sure, I felt awesome until about half way through the meal, which I would continue eating until I had scraped up every last grain of salt with a fry shard. Then I would feel fat, guilty and twice as depressed as I did before I started eating. Consequently, I'd go home, get on the treadmill and run for a minimum of an hour to assuage the guilt I was suffering from my hogfest. That activity would leave me tired and angry at myself, since the entire time I spent running I also spent berating myself for being such a pig/idiot. No, it's definitely best to stay away from the fast food.

  2. Gaaaa....ROSSOW'S! I remember going there with Craig and getting peanut butter shakes. drool...
