Markham Personal Trainer vs. Poutine

There it was….staring at me blankly in the face…my next opponent.

It weight 2 pounds, stood 4 inches tall and was called the Bacon Cheeseburger Poutine from Smoke’s Poutinerie in downtown Toronto. It had bacon on top, ground beef in the middle…and a whole lot of poutine underneath.

This was not going to be no easy task..no no no…I have never met a poutine like this before in my life…in fact I can’t remember the last time I ever ate a poutine…so this was going to be a challenge.

Note:Β  Traditional poutines are loaded of fries slathered in gravy with cheese chunks on top…this one was quite special…

But you know me…I’m always up for a challenge πŸ™‚

I took one long look at my opponent…my greasy, chunky, heep of poutine…

Then I sank my teeth into this monstrosity as if it was the last piece of food left on the earth for me.Β  I got past the bacon…easy stuff…this was going to be a piece of cake…mmmm….maybe I could have that later too…

After I demolished the bacon it was onto theΒ  ground beef mixed with cheese….now this was going to be a challenge.Β  I don’t like to eat dairy too much so the cheese was really getting in the way of me enjoying the ground beef mixed in with the gravy and poutine chunks….the cheese would prove to be my downfall..

I couldn’t finish it…the Poutine stood there laughing at me.

I was done…I couldn’t put another bite into my mouth for fear or ending up in the washroom and staying there for the rest of the night.Β  The poutine won.Β  I felt dejected….until I drank my lime soda.Β  That seemed to make things a lot better πŸ™‚

Cheat days ROCK!

    Does lime soda help with digesting cheese or any sort of dairy?
