I've been feeling really lousy lately, so I decided to make a concerted effort to get more produce into our diet. As opposed, of course, to those fruits and vegetables that just magically fall into our mouths. Everyone tells me my weeks of malaise are actually a
But I digress. So I got some vegetables when we were at the store Tuesday night. I ate a handful of baby carrots last night as I was trying to decide what to have for dinner (a cheese crisp--lay off me; I was sick). So crisp and delicious! Could it be that there are things worth eating besides popcorn, Skittles, and bread? Yes. I left off peanut M&Ms. Gee, and we wonder why I've gained a few pounds recently.
Also on Tuesday, when I decided to buy more produce--and then use it before it got all gross and mushy in my refrigerator, because how long does it have to be in 39 degree weather before it decomposes?--I got a watermelon at work.
I don't understand why we all got watermelons, but there was the assistant building manager with a cart of watermelons, handing them out like some sort of health-crazed Santa Claus. Fortunately, mine was on the small size because a) when have I ever eaten an entire watermelon? Never. and b) it's a dang long walk to the car. My wrist was killing me by the time I got there.
As part of my "more veggies so I don't feel so crappy" plan, I went to Subway for lunch. Would have been awesome if they weren't so stingy. Three cucumber slices, really? At least I got plenty of iceberg lettuce. Sigh. Although even less-nutritious iceberg lettuce is better than no lettuce. Surely it all makes up for the Cap'n Crunch I had for breakfast, right?
