I think about food all.the.time.  It’s my job but I also can’t stop thinking about what I want to eat next.  What my next meal will be, will there be chocolate or butter or cheese?  I hope so.  It’s imperative that I plan ahead with some healthy choices because if I let the hangries (Hungry + Angry = Hangry) I will eat anything and everything in my path.  Or at least at arms reach.
