Ode to Golden Corral

I love to eat, and for many years I have loved to eat at Golden Corral. In the past I would quite simply pig out -- lots of high-calorie, fun food, with at least "double dessert". GC definitely brought out the worst in me.

Now, with my "radical lifestyle change" completed, I'm amazed at how healthful I can eat at Golden Corral -- it's by far the heathiest place I can eat out at (in addition to our local Mongolian Grill, which is also quite the treat). What I find particularly funny is that my family finds Golden Corral to be a bit of a refuge from our regular eating styles but for me it's an opportunity to max out on veggies. (Let's just say that it's possible to radically have your life changed; my "before" and "after" can never be appreciated with photos alone. I'm sure sometimes my wife thinks she's created a monster.)

I'd eat at Golden Corral every day if I could, and have the past two days. (New baby at home means normal food routines get abandonned. :)

How's this for abundant, yummy, healthy eating (or is it healthful?):

-- rostisserie chicken breast
-- steamed broccoli
-- steamed cauliflower
-- steamed cabbage
-- steamed zuccini, yellow squash, and onions
-- lima beans (with butter I think)
-- sweat potato
-- And a fun dessert or two small ones :)

In a different post I mentioned wondering if I need to promise away desserts at Golden Corral, arguably my biggest vice these days. For now I'm going to keep enjoying them!

Note that Golden Corral can meet the needs of any particular diet too, whether low carb, low fat, or simply "eat right".

So, Golden Corral, if you're ever looking for your very own Jared, I'm your guy!!
