A lunch with my work team, Sarah and Maru, at Stellenbosch’s De Oude Bank Bakkerij is one filled with guilt about food. I love food, I love people who love food, and I am a feeder. But my team have been battling to eat healthy, and have been on a detox and diet plan. I have tried to join, in support, and also, in health – but it’s so hard, and I have cheated. Oh why even get emotional about this? It’s not as if this is DRUGS we are talking about…this is not even worth getting upset about. The real issue in my life is staying clean, staying off drugs, staying alive. Everything else is bonus.
I had a damned good meal. There will be more.
