You know, I usually pride myself on being able to (somewhat) withhold urges to binge on crazy-good food.
I can usually abstain from downing a box of cereal in one sitting (90% of the time, my boxes of cereal get stale before I can finish them), shovel handfuls of granola one after the other (although I may be tempted), or eat cookie after cookie once they’re baked. Sure, I enjoy enough (and yes, sometimes a little more than enough) but nothing that I would tend to deem “overboard.”
That was…until these showed up at my door.
This afternoon, I received an unexpected package in the mail from Wild Harvest, who is actually the gold sponsor for this year’s Healthy Living Summit.
The box had all sorts of their organic goodies, including applesauce, peanut butter, raisins, salsa, black beans, spices, granola, and…animal crackers.
I seriously couldn’t stop. They aren’t like any other animal cracker I’ve had before; usually I find them to taste more cracker-like with a subtly sweet flavor, but oh no…these things were more like a sweet little butter cookie, which I’m assuming must have some sort of magic potion baked into them.
I think it’s called the “you can’t stop at just one half a bag.”
I must tip my hat to these little fellas…they are one of the first goodies in a LONG time that has caused me to fall victim to the “I’ve started and I can’t stop” fiasco. Well done, Wild Harvest. Well done.
I give ‘em until tomorrow evening…tops.
Thankfully, I didn’t only subsist on animal crackers this afternoon.
I was starving by the time I got back from my doc appointment earlier, so I quickly put together a little salad duo: a simple salad of spring mix, sugar snap peas, carrots, and grape tomatoes with a serving of cheesy crab and shrimp salad on top.
No dressing needed…it was great on its own.
Shortly after that salad, I wanted something sweet so I put together a little bowl of fresh strawberries with a wedge of The Laughing Cow cinnamon cream cheese spread.
This was a great little afternoon snack for the sweet tooth.
Tonight, Jay and I have a softball game, which is most definitely going to be a scorcher…which means that this is probably going to be the first time this season where I’ll have to actually wash my uniform shirt. Is that gross? Ahh, oh well.
Last but not least, I’ll bet that you guys are probably waiting for some giveaway winners, huh?
