Lots of us out here on the blogging trail get offers from manufacturers to sample their products and perhaps give a review. I just turned down an offer to sample some bars from a company that used non-GMO soy. I don't like soy as food. I don't eat soy. Soy affects my body in a bad way. Thank you anyway.
I can easily say so-long to free soy. Honestly, I don't care how long I am keeping the pounds off, if someone were to offer free cheesecakes, I would have a problem saying no. Oh sure, I would be only find insanity in the package, but I would be thinking 'it is free CHEESECAKE.' And then I would wake up from the ensuing nightmare - God-knows when - fifty pounds heavier.
I would have to say no to free cheesecakes. I am grateful not to have that temptation in my life today. It is not something I need to worry about. I like cheesecake. I taste a cheesecake maybe once a year but I know I cannot have a cheesecake in the house. Getting a free one in the mail would be like receiving a package from the uni-bomber. I know (and several of you also know) a private-blog blogger that changes stores to get away from markets that offer free foods. I admire that strength in Vickie. She recognizes her weakness and turns it around with a positive action that gives her what she needs to stay food-sober.
If the food offered is food that makes you crazy, does free food make you freak?
