mary-lou retton may not be proud of this

This morning's breakfast.  I chuckled to myself and thought perhaps you might also either be entirely grossed out or also chuckle to yourself.  
the breakfast of champions

I grew up eating Wheaties.  
On the box were athletes of all sorts, but my very favorite was the 1984 feature of Mary Lou Retton, the gold metal gymnast.  She probably did not eat Wheaties for breakfast, even though it was lauded as "The Breakfast of Champions!"  

I can also pretty much guarantee that she didn't eat huge maple bars paired with hard-boiled eggs for breakfast.  I can also guarantee that I will be feeling pretty gross in a few hours.

To be fair
(and not that I need an excuse to eat a donut - but I do confess that they are my gateway food.  You know, the foods that open the door to all other sorts of horrific items the human body was never intended to ingest)

1.  I watched another episode of "Twin Peaks" last night. If you've seen it, you'll know that David Lynch has some sort of love affair with donuts - they are almost a character.  Consequently, I want one every.single.time I watch it.
Well, donuts, and cherry pie, that is.

2. I deserve to eat what I love (with occasion and restraint).

Do you think the protein will help keep the inevitable sugar crash at bay?
