A friend tells me that eating salads, or other health-oriented items so plainly presented, makes her feel like a cow, and so she doesn’t eat them. How that logic works makes no sense to me, possibly having something to do with the way a cow chews its cud, or maybe just the way they eat grass. In any case, I don’t see how eating healthily can be a negative thing. All foods can be healthy, in moderation. I’d rather be a cow by those standards; at least they eat as much as they need to, without eating because they simply feel like it. Cows are big by nature, because they’re sturdy. I think people should take a hint from them, or even from most animals, and just eat as you should, not as you feel. Why don’t we get rid of the logic that says because a cow is big it must overeat, and at the same time, clear the misconception that eating often is the same as eating in excess. Miseducation rears its ugly head again. I say we tomato it, and then tomato ourselves. Even I throw them into the mix, and I hate them, because I know that I’ll benefit from them in the future. Eat like a rabbit, not a habit. And for those you who dare, eat like a cow.
