I had the best snack today! The other day I saw Melissa combine oranges and peanut butter, which instantly intrigued me. Since oranges are one the verge of being in season and are available really cheap all around me (they were 69 cents a pound a Publix last week and grow in almost everyone’s backyard!) I have been looking for fun ideas to incorporate them. I must say Melissa had a hit with this one.
Sooooo good. I would never have thought of this combination but it was right on.
So next time you are looking for something sweet to dip in some nutty goodness, grab an orange! You will not be sorry!
Lunch was fabulous as well, even it was just left overs. J
I had the last of my Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Pizza. Yum.
A couple of you were asking if I could taste the sweet potato in the crust and I can honestly say I could really taste it today. It was subtle but definitely there. The crust was still amazing and the toppings were as always the perfect compliment. Nothing is better then left over pizza!
I also heated up some left over sauerkraut with okra thrown in there.
I know it looks like an odd combination but this really worked. I seasoned it up with some Cajun spices which gave the combo a little kick.
This afternoon is my company’s quarterly corporate meeting. There will be awards, recognition, drinks, food and cake. I did not bring a snack with me this afternoon in anticipation for some office goodies. This should be interesting to see how I behave myself around all of the office goodies.
Here are a couple of guidelines I always set in place to keep myself from overdoing it:
- Even if I’m not going to eat the cake, I accept a slice and hold onto it. I do not usually eat it, I just carry it around so a zillion people will not be offering me cake the whole time and then questioning why I’m not eating if. Even if I have it in my hands and am not eating it they do not care, I guess they just want to see me with cake. Weird, right?
- I never tell myself I am forbidden from anything at all. If I do that by the end of the office party I always rebel and munch on everything in sight.
- I always prioritize my choices. Would I have rather have the store bought cake or a nice glass of red wine? Would I rather have some chips and dip or the vegetables? Would I rather eat the homemade treat or the processed candy? You see my point.
- Mingle! If I talk to my fellow employees then I will not be staring at the food the whole time! J
I’m not sure how helpful those are, but they tend to work for me. How do you make it through all of the goodies at office meetings or parties?
