An Ode to Carbs

Good morning loves! Happy Hump Day! (aka, the almost best day of the week because you know that Thursday..and then Friday..is right around the corner:))

Yesterday, I told y’all about my love for carbs and how I’ve been craving them like a lady with a baby. (and no, I am not preggo)

Anyone ever think that sometimes we crave carbs because our body needs them?

Lately I’ve been hearing a lot of jank about carbs and noticing how much girls at school fear them.

And it absolutely stumps me.

I don’t know about you, but all of this fear of carbs goin’ on is making me a little annoyed.

Poor carbs! I think they could use a little pick-me-up, don’t you?

So, I thought I would write a little poem for carbs, to help them feel better.

No hatin’ on my carbs, please and thanks.

Inspired by Sir William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116

Ode to Carbs:

Let me not to the marriage of true minds

Admit impediments. Love is not thy low-carb bar,

Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an
ever-fixed deliciousness
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.

Carbs are not Time’s fool, though low-carb diets
Within his bending sickle’s compass come:

Carbs alter not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,
   I never writ, nor no man ever ate.

 

So friends, I leave you with this:

Eat they carbs, and love thyself.

Carbs were given to us for a reason; Mother Nature didn’t put fruit on the trees and grains from the ground by accident!

They’re there for us to enjoy, and eat lots of.

Carbs give us the energy to function every day; without them, our brains wouldn’t function, and our muscles certainly would NOT propel us on the Dreadmill.

Just make sure that they’re whole grain and not in the form of Wonder Bread, mmk? Winking smile

Bee tee tubs, it snowed on my Cookie Dough Bowl this morning! Aka, the best kind of carbs, co-co-nutified :)
