Daily Prompt: Red Pill, Blue Pill
If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?
Yes! If there were such a pill that would provide everything I need, and if I can add one more condition: if that pill would fill me up, I would definitely go for it. Oh, I know that I would miss the tastes of some foods now and then, but you see, I am a person of habit. I eat the same thing for lunch everyday: yogurt, a few pretzels, a cheese stick and an apple. It is nothing to look forward to, but it is relatively healthy, and it fills me up. On top of the habit thing is that I have a bit of a struggle with weight. (Apparently, my other meals are NOT as healthy as my lunches. 🙂 ) I am imagining that this theoretical pill would not cause weight gain, you see. And think of the time saved by not having to prepare or clean up after meals. So, in spite of the downsides — missing tasty foods — I think this pill would be a wonderful thing.
