I am the easiest person to influence with food. Every time I see an Olive Garden commercial I am convinced that’s what I want for dinner. Those TGI Friday’s commercials make me want to eat there too (and I do not like that place at all).
But, I digress… I often think oatmeal is a yummy idea for breakfast – especially when I have ripe bananas for it. I think all the delicious pictures of oats I see on other blogs make me think I want oatmeal.
But I don’t.
Don’t get me wrong, I like oatmeal. It’s just that I would rather have a bagel with AB or something else for breakfast. Every time I make oats I am left unsatisfied for some reason. I don’t know if I miss the chewiness of bread or the filling factor of a smoothie, but I eat oatmeal and then want something else.
But, they weren’t as good as my bagel and AB.
I guess I should remember no matter how beautiful and inviting oatmeal looks on other blogs, bread and nut butter is most often the better choice for my belly.
I should also remember that no matter how good of a deal TGI Friday’s is advertising, I don’t like that place and will leave feeling unsatisfied as well.
Even though it’s always Friday there, which sounds nice right about now…
Question: Are you easily influenced by advertising (or blogs)?
