I did my regular grocery shopping this week at Sam’s Club. We always buy in bulk at Sam’s because we have 4 kids, one of which is a couple months from being a teenage boy and may be trying to eat us out of house & home. Anyway, I have discovered that I really do a good job of staying on track if I have healthy options. If I run out of vegetables, something in my brain says “Eat ALL THE FOOD!” So, I was sure to stock up on my case of slimfast shakes and box of fiber one brownies (my usual treat). I also picked up a box of Skinny Cow treats. I have never tried them, although I see them in the checkout line of stores all the time.
If you have not had them, BEWARE! They are tiny, delicious, addictive versions of candy bars! They are little chocolate, peanut butter and carmel devils. I can hear them calling to me now. lol
I am going to have to put them in my husbands truck I think. I do this with snack cakes. I give each on of the kids one from the package and then, they go outside in my husbands truck… OUT of the HOUSE. I cannot be trusted with them. And now, it must be known that I cannot be trusted with these Skinny Cow candy bars! Funny, Fiber One Brownies have never beckoned me back for seconds. I have never *craved* one. Probably because they taste like dried up chocolate flavored cardboard instead of chocolate delights made by the confectionary gods. Okay, that may be an exaggeration, but seriously, I would not have bought them if I thought they were going to be freaking delicous.
Oh well, you live and learn. I am going to try to stick to the slimfast a bit more seriously because I have had excellent results with it before and I feel like I’m just spinning my wheels right now. I imagine my Skinny Cow fiasco has something to do with that. D@mn you Skinny Cow, you are going to be banished from my house!
