We had a busy day and opted to hit Subway for breakfast ... one of my favorite places to grab something quick on the way to work ... well, once in a while!
So, here we stand ... side by side. I, knowing exactly what I wanted, gave the woman my order. Tom had a more difficult time. He knew I was listening so I made myself scarce. Then he asked, "Is cheese OK?" My response was since they didn't have whole egg and only egg whites he could have cheese. I left it at that. On an English muffin he put Blackforest Ham (OK), cooked egg white (OK), he opted for Provolone cheese and looked at me for approval. No problem, but next time, you might consider the shredded cheese since it is REAL cheese rather than the not-so-good sliced cheese isn't a real food. Yeah, I got the look. It'll be OK. It takes time.
Well, as I expected, because Tom wanted to keep his sandwich the way he wanted it - the way he was used to it - and opted out of adding tomato or lettuce or any other vegetable, his sandwich was bland and dry and he said so. No butter on the English muffin. I, on the other hand, had spinach and tomatoes giving me a juicy fare. He wouldn't budge. I did tell him I didn't see a lot of color on his sandwich ... he sneered at me and reminded me he preferred catsup on his scrambled eggs. Yeah, this is where you see me roll my eyes!
But, he's doing well on taking his supplements ... 2 - 500mg niacin, 1 - CoQ10, 1 - MegaRed fish oil and I've just added 1 red yeast rice, which works like a statin drug.
