Funky Foodie Friday: Well hellooo there 2011!

Happy New Year!

Ok, ok, it’s January 7th, but I have an excuse! Really! I’m headed to Vegas this weekend for a fun conference that I’m really looking forward to, plus it means we’ll get to sample the Las Vegas foodie scene again which is always stellar.

Since it’s the New Year though, it’s prime dieting time for everyone. Weight loss programs and ‘food’ that tastes like cardboard abounds and everywhere we are bombarded by images of skinny happy people, smiling.

I never really thought much about it, until someone pointed me to today and their post, aptly titled “Women Laughing Alone With Salad”. Wow. These women so obliviously ecstatic about their leafy greens I’m nearly jealous…no salad I’ve ever had made me look so very happy! Or manic. Or just plain freaky.

Go get yourself some chocolate, then click here and see the happy salad women en masse.

Oh. And I gave up soda for my New Year’s Resolution. Seven days clean…I’m so proud of myself! What was your New Year’s Resolution?
