The perils of healthy eating

I made cheeseburgers for the family tonight. It sucks being the cook in the house and having to make those 1/2 pound, juicy, medium rare, seasoned just right, charcoal flame licked to perfection burgers...OK I had one too. The Doc said you cant deny yourself all the time! Just going to make up for it in the morning with a slightly longer ride.

Now for the perilous part. Since I am the only one having a salad on top of my burger, I have to cut all of my veggies. No prep help from the spouse . With 4 burgers left on the grill, ready to be cheesed, I was slicing very ripe tomato's and literally sliced 90% of the way through the tip of my left ring finger. OOOOWWWWWWW!!! Damn you healthy living! I was paying to much attention to the Tigers game and "snick". Thank God the tomato was very red.

So, whats your worst "healthy living" injury?

BTW...the Tigers lost...

Bison meat is very low in fat and tastes pretty darn good if you want a beef substitute...Fred Meyers or their affiliates carries bison from time to time!

Oh, and sorry about the finger...just throw what you lopped off on the bbq and have it for a snack

I used to be able to eat half a dozen donuts at a sitting. Since being on this forum I have been eating much better. The other day after a really good morning ride I thought I would pick up a couple donuts to reward myself. I had some honey do's to do and Dunkin was on the way to Home Depot. I was halfway through my first "double chocolate cake donut" I started feeling sick all over. I can't eat sugary crap any more. What a huge disappointment. I was king of donut consumption. It hurt. But its better being this way. Sick after half a donut. I would have never imagined! Yup, I tossed the second donut out for the birds.

I used to make excuses to go to Home Depot just so I could get a Hot Dog from the vendor at the exit. Sugary foods make me sick any more as well. I actually enjoy eating this way. Now that my body has pretty much detoxed its self I feel great.

The wife wanted me to go to the ER for stitches in my finger, it wouldn't stop bleeding last night until I superglued it together. Even kept it waterproof during this mornings downpour.

Cyanoacrylate (superglue) makes a great substitute for sutures, and has all but replaced the old "butterfly" bandages in the first aid kit in my trunk bag.

Great stuff. Bonds skin instantly is not a defect.

If you were cooking for your family why would you not make as healthy a meal as you know how to make? If you are trying to nourish yourself properly why deprive your wife and children of that benefit?

Cut my finger to the bone cutting an apple for work one day, lost an hour of work going to the Urgent Care for superglue, I wanted stitches but they said it wasn't big enough.

I'm an EMT. I see bone. I want the d*** thing stitched. You think being an EMT would make you appreciate doctors, but this isn't usually the case.

Also had some bad bowel moving experiences from eating healthy, painful but eventually passed. I don't think I'll eat that much salad in a week ever again. Not fun.

MY wife once made this cleansing soup which was mostly vegetarian, guess who had to go to the ER because his guts were exploding ....
