Another time, I would have walked right up and jammed you into my mouth—whole, if no one was watching. But today I must keep my distance for fear that a wisp of your powdered sugar will rise up to my nose like pixie dust and end this diet as quickly as it started.

I really do. </p><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Colin Nissan </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Humorist Colin Nissan on saying goodbye to his favorite foods </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-large"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_large" width="627" height="229" alt="" src="" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-standard"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-publication"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> January/February 2011 </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-related1"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-relatedtitle1"> <div class="field-label">Related Content Title 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Healthy Recipes You Can Enjoy on Your Diet </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks1"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/healthy_recipes_to_satisfy_junk_food_cravings">Healthy Recipes to Satisfy Junk Food Cravings</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/collections/healthy_fried_food_recipes">Healthy Fried Food Recipes and Cooking Tips</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/blogs/diet_blog/4_fast_food_dinners_to_steer_clear_of_and_what_to_order_instead">4 fast food dinners to steer clear of (and what to order instead)</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/see_it_make_it_chocolate_treats">See It, Make It: 100-Calorie Chocolate Desserts</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/blogs/diet_blog/how_many_calories_are_in_that_coffee_4_sips_to_watch_out_for_plus_light">How many calories are in that coffee?!? 4 sips to watch out for, plus lighter choices</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/microwave_desserts">Microwave Desserts </a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/blogs/diet_blog/10_comfort_foods_to_put_back_in_your_diet">10 Comfort Foods to Put Back in Your Diet</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/healthy_homemade_ice_cream_recipes">Healthy Homemade Ice Cream Recipes</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> Colin Nissan January/February 2011 Food News & Origins - People & Perspectives Tue, 14 Dec 2010 18:22:40 +0000 Erin McCormick 16718 at
