Montreal smoked meat...not quite a breakfast of champions
Laval, QC, August 2009
About this photo: It's all-things-red week as Thematic Photographic celebrates the happiest color ever. Don't know what the hell I'm talking about? Click here and all will be explained. But first, we eat.Like many cities, Montreal is home to a number of foods that define its very soul. In some cases - bagels, for instance - they're fairly neutral from a health perspective. In others - exhibit A being the sandwich I've shared here or the hideously famous poutine - they ought to come with their own cardiologist.
I have a weak spot for smoked meat. I know it'll kill me eventually, but I can't say no if it's on the menu. I figure I'll do an extra few kilometers on the bike tomorrow to compensate. Or call a cardiologist and make an appointment.
Either way, it's a seemingly small thing that adds just a little more zing to our time on this planet. Seen from that perspective, maybe it's not so unhealthy after all.
