Are You A Veggie Guy?

I recently shared that I would be giving up my œsugar and chocolate men for œveggie men for the New Year. I received many emails addressing this subject, so I think it’s time we take a closer look at what a veggie man is¦

WC Dish’s definition of Veggie Men:

Men who are good for you. These are men who are reliable, trustworthy and will lead to a healthy relationship. They are the ones you can feel good about. Relationships with these men are like a nice, healthy diet of leafy greens.

Real world definition: The good guy.

Seems easy. What’s the problem? Well, the problem is that there is only so long until you want a cookie. And then you may want a slice of cake or maybe some potato chips. And it’s all down hill from there.

Well not this year. Not for me. I’ve decided it’s time to really find myself a good veggie man and enjoy the healthy benefits. The chocolate may look tempting and the chips may try to sway me but I’ll be true to my resolution.

As luck would have it, I had to see my doctor for bronchitis last week. Okay, that doesn’t sound “lucky” but my doctor has a friend she wanted me to meet. I told her that he should read the blog and if he wasn’t too scared he should write me.

I guess he wasn’t too scared… ’cause I scored an email. Here is a quick look at some of his comments…

œSure, I didn’t connect the dots and make the clear distinction that I’m a vegetable, er, like a vegetable…. well, you get it.

If I had to pick, though, I’d say that I would be a Cayenne pepper “ mild looking, unassuming, stable, with a sizzling, fiery side when opened up.

I’m dying to know what the qualities of a good veggie man are so that I can stack myself up against that yardstick and see how I do! 

The Final Dish: I like peppers¦ but can I handle a Cayenne pepper? I’ll have to find out. Oh yeah… and he likes French toast for breakfast. Oh la la.
