Surrounded by good food (I can’t have)

Same thing for dinner again tonight: rice, beans and broccoli. At least it goes down easier with the added apple sauce but the boredom is getting to me. Especially because I have to watch my kids eating (and wasting) so much good food. I cut them slices of cheese and give them bowls of yoghurt while I just wish I could lick the spoon! I imagine what it must be like to be on welfare and be surrounded by food you can’t access: people walking by with their coffee and muffins, sitting on the patio of a restaurant, eating a sandwich on the skytrain…I’m getting hungry just thinking about it! And I can’t even have a banana because I finished my last one yesterday!
