A couple of weeks ago, I bought two boxes of Reese's SnackBarz. I gave one box to my son and kept a box for myself "just in case" I needed a healthier version of a candy bar. This treat claims to have calcium, iron and 7 essential vitamins. Woo Hoo! Zero trans fats and only 120 calories per bar! Not a terrible choice, but still, a choice I shouldn't have made.
The problem with buying something like this is that I don't want to eat just one. Like the old potato chip ad, I can't eat just ONE. I try to avoid the box but I keep seeing it in my mind. And so I cave in and eat another. I should have given them away so I wouldn't have them in the house. If I had not bought the dang things, I would have never had this struggle. I'm learning, really I am, that there are some things that I never need to buy. These snackbarz are going on that list.
So being off this week is wonderful. We went out to lunch on Monday to Qin Dynasty (pronounced - chin dynasty). They have really great Chinese food and I think I did okay, except for sodium. You can't get Chinese with out lots of that, IMO. Yesterday no bike riding due to...RAIN! We had some at our house. It was like manna from heaven. The ground slurped it right up.
Tonight I'm cooking a dish from my Clean Eating magazine. I'll be making the stuffed peppers! I'll tell you how they turned out later and share the recipe.
Have a great rest of the week! Don't forget to drink your water. And watch out for those snacks.
