Baloo was not lying about the prickly pears

by Meghann on September 15, 2008

For the past day I have been experiencing all of these little splinters in my fingers and I could not figure out where they were coming from. Then it suddenly dawned on me, the cactus pear! The cactus pear is after all the fruit of the cactus. They ‘deneedle’ the fruit before they sell it, but as true with any other part of the cactus there are still micro needles that remain. They feel just like a splinter we they insert your skin. So please be forewarned, if you re are going to handle the cactus pear at the store or at home, be sure to realize you will probably end up with a couple of stray micro needles in you palm and they’re kind of annoying. Oh well, lesson learned.


Today has been another day of stuffing envelopes… joy.


Around 10:30 I got hungry/ bored of stuffing and had this Honey Roasted Granola Bar from Whole foods.


These bars are all natural, with a short ingredient list and very filling. Yum.


Lunch today was some left over Snobby Joes. I think the Joes were even better today then on Friday. I’m always a big believer in the fact that food sometimes just taste better the next day.


I stuffed a multi-grain pita with the snobby joe mixture and had grapes, carrots and cucumber slices on the side with hummus.


This was a very filling lunch and will hopefully keep me fueled through a few more hours of stuffing!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! 🙂

You really should try the pineapple coffee cake – I really like it (and my family did too). A quick tip: you don’t need to bother blending the oatmeal. I didn’t do it the 2nd & 3th time I made it and it makes no difference…

Congratulations on your weight loss – amazing job!

I once had a temp job that all I did for SIX WEEKS was stuff envelopes – yet they were never mailed. I called the temp agency after the sixth week to see if they needed me to come back the following Monday, and they said “no, they are going out of business!”

What a waste!

Lunch looks yummy though!

Good idea to put the snobby joe in in pita, your right, I think they do taste better the next day.

I have seen those Whole Foods bars and wondered how they tasted. Thanks for reviewing them!
