Isn’t it adorable? It’s better when there’s a little yogurt or stack of pepperettes nestled up with the cheese, but I didn’t have any. I actually didn’t even need to pack this lunch because I have a lunch date tomorrow. I packed it just so I could take a picture of it and blog about it. That’s dedication, people.
Anyway, snackie little platters like this are pretty much my favourite thing ever. I don’t see anything wrong with eating nothing but appetizers for the rest of my life. A little of this, a little of that = awesome. The crackers are rosemary and olive oil Triscuits, which I’m basically obsessed with. For reals, I could eat them forever. The grapes give me something sweet and the carrots give me something crunchy to make me feel fuller. I’m a ridiculously fast eater (seriously, I’m probably way faster than you are) so having little compartments to pick at helps slow me down. Plus, it’s so cute! People at work always see it and ask who has the nice little lunch. I love it. It’s a Lock and Lock container that I got at Walmart and it’s so helpful. You can take out the compartments if you need to put something bigger in it too. Hopefully this will help keep me eating normal things and normal portions at lunch instead of getting into the whole mindset of “I’m starving and I hate my sad little lunch of leftovers that I don’t want. I’ll run to the Superstore and get a pizza bun instead! That’s healthy, right? Not really because it’s covered in grease? Well then I’ll counteract it with a Greek salad. What’s that? I shouldn’t eat so much feta cheese? It’s a salad, it’s healthy! Oh hey wait, it’s a Wendy’s!”
So that’s my plan. And I don’t mean to brag or anything, but I wore a new pair of pants today that were super big on me. I’m figuring that it’s because I’ve been eating like a normal human being for two days and obviously am getting super skinny because it’s just that easy to lose weight and not because I most likely bought the pants a size too big and then they stretched throughout the day. Yeah, that’s it.
