I haven’t written a blog post for a while, it seems. So I’m just gonna break the silence with a story from my life.
Stroopwafels taste like ultra sweet cardboard, but strangely they are one of the most calorie dense items that you can buy from a grocery store. I’m not sure if even pure gasoline would have more calories per cubic inch than Stroopwafels. Today all I’ve eaten are two of those bad boys and they have kept me going for over 10 hours.
I like to have Stroopwafels sometimes, because they are such an easy way to deal with your calorie needs. No need to prepare anything, just swallow a few of these zero nutrition calorie bars and your blood sugar will be high enough for anything for hours on end.
The alternative to Stroopwafels is the struggle of deciding what to eat three times a day, for the rest of your life. Deciding what to have, buying it, preparing it, eating it, doing the dishes.
I have a contract with a cleaning lady who thoroughly cleans up my place every month. But if I am ever gonna be wealthier, I will hire a personal chef in addition to the cleaning lady. So I don’t have to decide what to eat on my own. Then maybe I can say goodbye to Stroopwafels. But until that day, the Stroopers will continue to be real troopers.
