I Really Didn’t Want that Anyways

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?

  1. Can’t believe your dog chomped on the phone!
    The yogurt bowl looks fabulous, though! 😀 Wish we had greek yogurt here!

  2. oh no!!! major phone bummer! one of my dogs got ahold of my hubby’s ipod once. not pretty!

  3. No WAY! What a naughty girl!! I will apologize on behalf of your pooch, because we have (almost) the same name. Sorry!!!

  4. My dog got a hold of my favorite tennis shoes the last time I was home with him. And I’m the kind of person who only has one pair of each type I need. I pair of dressy shoes, one pair of flip flops, and of course one pair of tennis shoes that function as my workout and everyday shoes. =_= I still haven’t been able to bring myself to buy another pair just yet.
    Sorry about your phone!

  5. Vega protein powder didn’t meet my expectations, only because I expected the chocolate flavour to taste like chocolate … not berries.

  6. EEEK! I can’t believe your dog ate your phone. That is so not nice! Bad pooch!

    I’m loving your eats, especially that yogurt bowl. I’ve recently reintroduced yogurt into my life and I can’t get enough.

  7. hahaha, awww…your poor phone!

    President’s Choice plain Greek yogurt (only available in Canada probably, because Canada sucks at Greek yogurt). It tasted like bum-oley!

  8. We had a black lab that chewed up anything and everything she could get her paws on. This went on for 13 years!
