The Cat has an “aversion” to “brown food”. Let me explain. The Cat “prefers” vegetables (green food) with lunch and dinner. Her tummy is not comfortable if vegetables are not included in the meal. “Brown food” is not green vegetables (root vegetables is also considered “brown” in her mind).
Me? While I would like to have vegetables with my meals, it’s not as critical a requirement.
So, yesterday, I worked a late afternoon/early evening shift. My lunch was a prefect example of “brown food” (from the mall grocery store).
No vegetables (unless you consider the Japanese style pickled turnips veggies, I kinda do :))
The furikiake fish was the cheapest bento available and the fried chicken breast was on sale at the same price of a wing (why not).
Met The Cat at her office to carpool home. Circumstances beyond my control and it was decided to pick up something on the way home. Ended up at Kam Drive In (1620 North School Street, Hawaii). Now, typically, drive-in places here are not epicenters for “green food”, read meat, rice, and mac salad. Not boding to well for The Cat. She settled for a bowl of saimin as the least “offensive” selection.
The green onions are garnish, not vegetables. — The Cat.
For me, more brown food.
Ordered the tossed salad without dressing, gave the salad to The Cat to mix with the saimin soup. Turns out, The Cat thinks their cha-siu in the saimin wasn’t bad. With the salad mixed into the saimin, her dinner was acceptably decent. Surprisingly happy cat. Who woulda thunk.
For me, I consider beans a vegetable, so with the brown rice, happy mouse although all I had was “brown food” yesterday. :)
Today’s lesson, keep an open mind, you never know what may happen.
So, what are your eating habits?
Enjoy. Eat well.
