Last night was incredibly un-eventful and involved me watching copious amounts of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Do you watch any of the “Housewives” shows? Which one is your favorite? Mine is the o.g. original Housewives of the O.C.. Remember when Quinn was on for that one season? That chick was ca-RAY-zee!
I’m glad I didn’t wear myself out though, because today I was up bright and early with the sunshine! I hopped out of bed at 7:30, jumped in the shower and headed to the grocery store. Can I just tell you what a true joy it is to grocery shop at 9am? There is nobody else there! No fighting for space in the aisles, no having to dig through the picked over produce…love it.
While there, I picked up a Starby’s beverage. Skinny vanilla latte with no foam, thank you very much.
I also picked up some Cascadian Farms Organic Granola! Me and granola are like this, so unfortunately I can’t buy it like, EVER, because I mow through 10 servings before I even know it!
Today though, I thought to myself – you can do this…you can portion out servings and control yourself. Plus I had a coupon, so I bought a box!
Let me tell you, choosing a flavor was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done – there were a million to choose from! Well not that much, but it least 7 different kinds!
It came down to Maple Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Raisin. CR won out because, well, Cinnamon and I are also like this.
I consider granola to be a treat. I mean, sugar is the second ingredient listed on the box. So, while this is breakfast for today, in the future it will be a snack or an after dinner treat. Regardless of when I eat it though, it is delicious and I highly recommend this brand and flavor!
I’m just twiddling my thumbs until Ben wakes up, as the house needs a good vacuuming, but I can’t turn on the vacuum until the man wakes up from his slumber. Hopefully I’ll get to see my nephew later, then I need to exercise! I’ve been a bit preoccupied the past couple of days and need to get back at it!
Is there anything you usually don’t purchase because you know you’ll eat way too much of it once you get it home?
I won’t buy chips either because I WILL eat it least 5 servings if I even taste 1 chip. They are my kryptonite.
