Confession: I am a Food Ruiner

Sometimes even I get irritated by my love of routine.

I have a nasty habit of ruining perfectly good food.  By ruining, I mean eating it so many times in a row that I reach a point where I never ever want to see it again.

Case in point: last year sometime I changed some dietary things to help me shed the last 10 baby pounds that seemed to make themselves at home on my body.  So for breakfast I starting having smoothies: 1 cup of frozen fruit, one big dollop of greek yogurt, a squirt of honey, 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed and 2 Tbsp of chocolate Instant Carnation Breakfast.  I felt so healthy, and it really seemed to help.  I also began eating a salad with some kind of chicken on top every day for lunch.  Last year I was able to lose 12 pounds.  And now I am SO OVER IT.

So I found this recipe for a scrambled egg in the mug and a two-minute breakfast sandwich.  It's glorious and FAST.  I can make it three and half minutes total and have a real filling breakfast.  But I just know I'll probably ruin this too.  The question is, how many will I eat before I never want to eat it again?

Spice things up, you say?  Variety is the spice of life, eh?  Maybe. Probably.  Too late.  I'm already stuck in my rut.
