    Be honest...do you eat as well as your pigs?

    Soooo...I have been spending a lot of money on one of the best quality pellets and hay for my piggy. I always search for the best looking veggies and make sure she eats just the right amount of each for optimal health.

    It got me to thinking do I eat as well as my piggy? (Not too much, not too little, just the right amount and balance of high quality foods and plenty of fresh veggies and fruit, whole grains and all that good stuff.) The answer is NO. Guilty as charged. My piggy officially eats better than I do. Does make you think twice about what you eat (for a while anyway until those goodies tempt you to eat otherwise. )

    Does anyone else's piggies officially eat better than they do?

    I think I'm exactly like you. My pigs get the best hay and pellets and all of their veggies are organic. I'll spend so much time looking for the perfect head of lettuce or radicchio and I'm very picky about their tomatoes and green peppers. I buy all of my produce at the organic market and many times the clerks will comment about how nice the radicchio looks and then I tell them we don't eat it, it's for our guinea pigs. That usually gets a laugh from them. My husband always tells me that he believes we ourselves eat better because we buy such good produce for our pigs. Now if we could just snack on carrots and green peppers like our pigs do instead of reaching for the popcorn and chips we'd be doing better.

    I have a lot more salads and make more veggie soup from scratch since I have all this produce around the house. And when Lacey gets veggies, the dog wants his cut so he gets a piece of carrot or cuke.

    I'd say Tannim probably eats better than I do, but I am eating better than I did before I adopted him -- like ItsaZoo said, the produce around the house encourages me to eat more salads myself. Now if I could only break this addiction to potato chips and nutty bars...
