The Duplex (10/2/10)

Salt, fat, and sugar. Once a person tastes those things, it’s almost impossible to steer them back toward vegetables. Let’s face it: fast food satisfies a craving and it’s convenient. Working two jobs? Grabbing a burger on the way home is a lot easier than chopping up produce at 1:00 in the morning. Working zero jobs? Eating off the dollar menu is a lot cheaper than making a meal from scratch. Given those temptations, maybe it’s too much to ask that we drop our bad eating habits all at once. Maybe a subtle transition would be easier. Instead of substituting fries for carrot sticks, we could substitute fries for homemade potato wedges. Brushed with olive oil. And sprinkled with kosher salt. Okay, now I’m getting hungry.
