Well I did have my stuff together this morning. Junior and I left the house at 7:00 and went straight to Wally World. I have food, mostly good food, here at the office!
I'm trying out this new sammich bread. It's different. It's small. It doesn't get all bready when you're eating a sammich. I like it. It made a lovely turkey, provolone and romaine lettuce sammich. AND....5 grams of fiber in them there 2 slices.
I've been liking this new juice:
I discovered it during basketball season. We had to drop in the grocery store to get more Gatorade. I wanted something to drink besides another soda or more freakin' water. I saw the strawberry, cantaloupe and watermelon on the front and decided to give it a try. It's actually pretty tasty but does have a bit of wang on the aftertaste. The six pack sells for $5.99
but today, after the VACATIONING LOCUSTS raided our store, there was only singles left. Singles are $1.50 and that really chapped my hide. I did buy 2 so I'd at least have one for tomorrow too. Side note to the "slenderize" on this label: Kiss. My. Ass. I like you for your melons and 20 calories (versus a soda).
I picked up a box of Nutri-Grain cereal bars in strawberry. Wow, I didn't know I could be so disappointed in $2.50 of strawberry. The filling is too sweet and there's not enough "cereal", the ratio is way off.
I will probably try to sell these to Junior. They're sweet enough for his taste and they are individually wrapped...also to his taste. He can't read so I'm pretty sure if I tell him it's a cookie, he'll believe me.
I picked up a package of celery. I'm the only one who will eat it at the house. I forgot I was taking this celery to the office and did not remember to pick up any peanut butter. Which is OK, I ate a rib of celery with my sammich to replace the chip CRUNCH that is so satisfying to enjoy while eating a sammich. I don't know why the boys have such a hard time with celery. It's loud
and crunchy, good celery quenches your thirst as you eat it and it has no calories! I think I even heard some kind of BS that celery has negative calories.
Oprah and Dr. Oz are always talking about how awesome nuts are for you. I love me some almonds so instead of going for the salty wasabi ones, I picked up the all natural ones. And I could not believe how tasty they were! These are SO GOOD and when I added 28 of them to my lunch plate, I did not miss french fries or potato chips at all.
So maybe if I eat like this 4 days a week, 4 weeks a month, 12 months a year I'll lose 5 pounds. Or just save all that dining out cash and get it all sucked out....
