I’m super excited about today’s guest post! I’ve been following Charlotte @ Commitness to Fitness for quite some time now. She is extremely witty and has quite the way with words. I always read her posts in the a.m. because they always bring a smile to my face or leaving me laughing hysterically. This post is certainly no exception! Take it away Charlotte!
Hello Eat Great Be Great fans! I’m Charlotte of Commitness to Fitness and I am filling in for the lovely Miss Holly while she is away on business.
So, what should we talk about today? Let’s talk about Holly while she’s gone. Isn’t she so pretty? And doesn’t she have the prettiest hair? I’m so jealous of her hair.
I also always love her Power Foods Friday posts, don’t you? As I was brainstorming ideas for today’s post, I was thinking of doing something along those lines. However, it soon occurred to me that I am nowhere near as knowledgeable as she is on the subject of power foods, because when I tried to think of a power food the first thing that came to mind was a gummy bear wearing a cape.
So I then spent a larger portion of my day than I care to admit figuring out how put a cape on a gummy bear.
I then thought to myself wouldn’t the story of Frankenstein have been a little more relateable if Frankenstein’s monster had awoken from just a jolt of coffee? Not that I’m trying to tell the great Mary Shelley how to write, I’m just making an observation on the kind of power it takes to get me moving when I’m dead to the world:
Which subsequently reminded me of a science project I did as a child where I learned that it’s possible to turn on a light bulb using a potato:
And ta da! Literal power food! (See kids, I had a point the whole time)
And that brings me to the end of this post. Thanks for reading. I hope you learned something, even if it was just about gummy bears and capes. Have a great day
Did you ever turn on a light bulb with a potato?
What’s a memorable science project you did as a kid?
Whats one food that you can always count on for a boost?
