Vegetables Are Sexy, Bad Diets Are Not

This is, as I recall, one of the times I was most turned off by a girl and the realization that a good diet is actually sexy.

My then-girlfriend and I were at Peanut Butter and Company to grab a quick bite. I got the Elvis — a delicious grilled sandwich containing peanut butter, honey, and bananas — and she, being the fussy eater she was, got a plain old turkey sandwich — white bread, turkey, mayo, lettuce, and tomato.

Now that’s all well and fine; not everyone likes to experiment and try new foods (which was also a bit annoying, but I digress. . .).

The part that really got to me? She took the lettuce and tomato off her sandwich.

Now, I know lettuce doesn’t have any nutritional value, and I’m not a vegetarian by any means, but who the hell does that? Watching her eat a turkey sandwich with just mayo oozing out the sides was honestly disgusting.

And I’m not sure what exactly it was about the whole ordeal that grossed me out so much — the realization that I never saw her eating vegetables EVER or that everything she ate was bound to go to her ass and thighs eventually.

Or maybe she just never ate a good vegetable at the right time of the year? If we were still on speaking terms, I’d suggest she go pick out a tomato since it’s harvest season and thus the best time to do so!

Some tips for buying/maintaining the perfect tomato from “The Early Show” on CBS:

  • buy locally for ultimate freshness
  • the juices will flow when a fresh tomato is pierced
  • try to get an heirloom tomato, one where the seed has been passed down from generation to generation. usually¬†misshaped¬†and colorful, but also some of the tastiest
  • don’t refrigerate them — they’ll usually stay good for at least week as long as it’s out of direct sunlight

So ladies and gentleman, a good diet is definitely the way to go if you don’t want to turn off potential lovers.

Oh yeah, a good diet of vegetables also increases your arousal, attraction, and sex drive. Pass the salad, please.
