I Really Didn’t Want that AnywaysPosted: April 15, 2011
Thinking back through my school-age years, I never once used the “my dog ate my homework” excuse.
Haley, though, seems determined to help me make up for lost ground, only instead of homework, she chose something a dash more critical to munch on…
Fine, Haley, make my personal effects your chew toys. I didn’t want my phone anyways.
What I did want, however, was food, and lots of it!
After opening my vegetable drawer to find a completely wilted head of lettuce, I nixed the romaine in the salad I had planned for lunch and went straight for the other raw veggies instead.
Between the carrots, cabbage, jicama, peas and celery I didn’t miss the greens at all! I must not have wanted those to begin with either 😉
A blueberry muffin from Sweet Tomatoes and a baggie of pistachios rounded out the meal as I had planned.
I munched on a new-to-me granola bar on the way to pick up a new phone.
Flavor-wise, the Cascadian Farms vanilla chip chewy granola bar was spot-on, but as with most granola bars, the 13 grams of sugar made it more of a glorified candy bar.
After peeking inside, I wasn’t surprised that two of the main ingredients were brown rice syrup and sugar and that tapioca syrup wasn’t too much further down the list.
At least for this morning’s breakfast I got exactly what I wanted…
Plain fat free Chobani, a ripe mango, organic almonds and a sprinkling of flax seeds hit the spot and fueled me up for what I presume is going to be a long day at work. It’s a good thing I adore my job – the major content overhaul that we are working on takes a lot of brainpower!
Off to put my English major to good use!
What was the last product you tried that didn’t quite meet your expectations?
If you have a dog, how do you keep them from gnawing your possessions to pieces?
