who the hell am i?

i was glancing through a People’s magazine.

one side of the page has this new caramel, double chocolate snickers bar and a picture of some sort of devil’s chocolate cake.

the page right beside it shows a picture of a Cobb salad.

what do you think made me stop in my tracks and exclaim  “YUM”?

uh huh – the Cobb salad kids.

i don’t even know who i am anymore

cookie monster

my office building had their annual Christmas lunch.

Turkey and stuffing and all the trimmings.
can you say yummy!!!

Not sure if i have talked about my work lunch program here or on the blog next door. 
Considering this is my food/health blog i will assume i have rambled here.
Anyways…awesome lunch program here.  I get a sweet lunch for less than a $1.50 a day.

Anywho…i decided i would take a cookie for my dessert. 
Bad bee i know.
But listen, i gave up the mashed potatoes so there is something to be said about that.

So it was time to eat my cookie (which i thought was shortbread but was not)
I took two bites and threw it away.
it was disgusting!!  (sorry kitchen ladies)

See…i hate sugar!

then again, my cookie monster bff threw his away too.  maybe i didn’t lose my sweet tooth…
maybe, just maybe i got a crap cookie.

pooey on the cookie

yummy in my greek goddess tummy

i am feeling pretty random today – beware 🙂
 
i wanna talk about yogurt.  it’s true.
 
Us Greeks love our yogurt.  we put it on everything…rice, eggplant…tzatziki hello!!
 
i remember being in my mid 20’s when someone brought it to my attention that putting yogurt on my rice was “weird”.
i think this was someone i was actually courting…seeking out as a potential mate. 
Pfft…decision made.  bye bye!
 
Seriously…it’s true.  i love yogurt on rice.  not that i eat rice anymore…but it just goes together.
that’s how this greek goddess was raised…
 
But its gotta be greek yogurt.  not any other yogurt would suffice.  I currently buy the Astro – Balkan Style (ohhhh, i just gave Astro a free shout out…any chance they will give me a free life time supply?)
 
But – and this is weird….
 
the other day…i had just washed my day right outta my hair…got in to my fat pants and was ready to call it a night…
when i got a craving.
the most unusual craving to date.
 
I raided my cupboards and realized i didn’t have the one thing i wanted.  (isn’t that always the way)
 
So it’s late at night..i am in my jammies…i throw on my shoes and head to the store.
i wanted honey and apparently i wanted it right now!!!
 
Us Greeks also eat yogurt with honey.  throw in a few walnut pieces and you have heaven in a bowl.
 
Since i have been adding the odd, good for you carb back in to my life i don’t feel so guilty about the honey.
oh honey how i have missed you.
It’s not actually sugar and it’s all natural…so i don’t feel too bad
 
But where did this craving come from?????  i kid you not when i say the last time i ever ate yogurt and honey…i was under 10 years old.
i have not had it since.
so where did this need come from??  why did i have to leave my house just to make this simple little dessert?
i mean i understand leaving the house for…oh…a peanut buster parfait
but honey and yogurt…really???
 
 
anyways that’s my story.  you should try it…seriously…it’s quite the yum yum.
 
on my way in this morning i took out my Sara CD (i know, for shame) and i threw in my Beth Hart.  Sometimes this goddess feels like listening to something angry and rough 🙂
i got a whole lot of singing and chair dancing in today folks.
if you are in the mood for a feel good song – click here
it always makes me happy.
 
Have an awesome Friday!!

stuff it

i just had my first of several Thanksgiving dinners.
 
they made us a fancy one downstairs in the cafeteria.
mmm mmm good!
 
I am a sucker for stuffing.  Probably one of my biggest weaknesses.
 
 
sooooo….i did have a little bit of stuffing….just a little
 
but i did not have any mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, or apple pie
that’s gotta count for something right?
 
so i had turkey, and veggies and a tiny bit of stuffing.  not bad.
 
annnnnd…i am most definitely getting sick.  when i am sick i want comfort food
so i should really get props for denying myself pumpkin pie.
however….the fire’s been lit.  me thinks i will make a low carb pumpkin pie tonight
after my 5 mile guilt walk of course.
 
so one dinner down…another…2-3 to go.
 
god help me.
