Tastes great, less filly

It’s all in how you look at it:

I’m doing my interpretation of the DASH diet (“Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension”) — lots of fruits and Rainbow Dashvegetables, low salt, careful amounts of lean protein, moderate amounts of whole grain, limit sugars and less-healthy fats. But I’m thinking of it as the “Rainbow Dash diet” instead. Because that amuses me a lot more. And most of the stuff I eat (oats, vegetables, sweet potatoes, stuff like apples) is probably stuff Rainbow Dash would eat. And it makes me feel better about “diet” to think of it as “Rainbow Dash diet.” Brains are funny things.

If it helps, it helps. (Though not even Otis Spunkmeyer, I suspect, would recommend a Derpy diet.)

    While the Rainbow Dash diet is probably fairly healthy (for a pony, anyway) I’m not sure if I could get used to eating hay fries.

    A diet that absolutely prohibits even thinking about something that is probably not good for you (such as hay fries) is a diet you won’t stay on for very long.

    I’m guessing hay fries would be tough on human digestions; way too much cellulose there.
