A well balanced diet makes you fast!
My Chinese friend always rolls her eyes at the mere mention of Chinese food since it is absolutely nothing like real Chinese food- there are no heavy, heavy sauces etc. and it is mostly vegetables and meat over rice. Anyway, whenever we eat Chinese food I talk about this with the kids and the Conqueror is very interested in the whole concept. Well, we finally found a place that delivers and we had some yesterday. There are actually a ton of fresh vegetables in it with the sauces and I was happily surprised to get some vitamin A and C with my MSG. Anyway, we had leftovers for lunch and the Conqueror was happily eating away. "Mom," he said, "this is really like real Chinese food. There are tons of vegetables in it!! This must be why the ninjas were so good!!" Forget Popeye...we eat vegetables around here so we can be ninjas!
