View Full Version : sugar snap peas vs. "snap peas"

I know this might be a silly question but hey what the heck!!!! Is there a difference between "sugar snap peas" and "snap peas". The reason I ask is...on the food list SBD has snap peas so I bought a bag and ate the WHOLE THING :o in front of my computer!!! Then I noticed one serving (3 in a bag) has 3gm sugar. I just started SBD on Mon so I am still figuring all of this stuff out. Thanks!!!

The whole bag, eh? :lol: I think you're okay, hon. There's enough fibre in those things... you may be sitting on the toilet all night. :lol3:

I just couldn't help myself :T We will see how tonight goes....might not do that again!!!!

Do you eat them raw? ;) This is new to me.

01-27-2005, 11:18 PM
They are yummy and crunchy! Raw is good! What was the fiber count?

Ruth, she's still in the bathroom... don't bother her until maybe tomorrow.

:p Well last night went well as far as the bathroom!!! No problems!!! :lol:
As far as the rest of the night...thats a different story. Didn't eat dinner last night...actually let me rephrase that...I had a dinner of about 8 oz of Southern Comfort!!! When I got home last night my husband told me that my Boston Terrier "Jack" got hit by a car. My husband said he had to put him down. Then we had to tell the boys :( That was hard!!!! Guess the diet is on hold right now...I don't even feel like eating ANYTHING!!! Sorry to bring you down but I just need to share. Thanks for being here!

Oh my gosh! I am so sorry!!!!!!!!! I know y'all must be so distraught right now. Hang in there. We are here for you if you just need to talk! (type) How old are your boys? I hope they are ok. By the way welcome to the beach!

01-28-2005, 10:30 AM
Oh, sweetie... I'm so very sorry. :( Like Bamie said, we're here for you anytime. Even if you're not dieting right now, we're good for comfort, okay? :grouphug:

Thanks Bam. My boys are going to be 5 in March. This is thier first pet to die and he was only seven months old. I think thats what makes it SO hard. We also have an 8 year old Golden Retrevier. I wasn't home when this all happened but my husband said that when he went out to the road, Hoover (the golden) had his head laying across Jack trying to keep him comforted. We had only had him for 5 months but they had become good buddies. I don't know if we should go get another one as soon as possible or if we should wait?? I think it might make it easier for the boys (and myself) if we got another puppie soon. I just don't know!!! It has been about 14 years since I lost a dog. I just want it all to go back to the way it was!!!!! I am so mad at every car that drives in front of my house!!!! :mad:

Thanks Elli :)

Rest in Peace, dear Jack. My heart goes out to you and your family. Such a a hard thing to have to put a furry child to sleep! :grouphug:

01-28-2005, 10:48 AM
Oh, my goodness... what a beautiful thing for Hoover to do. :cry:
I think you should go with your gut feelings. Jack was young, and so are your boys. Getting another soon may make things easier for the boys. And for sweet Hoover. :yes:

Ditto what Ellis said! That is what I was goin to say. Ellis... You took the words right out of my mouth. Good luck finding a new pup for the boys.

I am so sorry about your dear Jack. Hugs for you and your boys.

Sorry to hear about your dog, but maybe you should get a fence before you get another?

01-28-2005, 01:04 PM
We are thinking about putting up a privacy fence but the problem with that is...we have 1.3 acres and it is mostly front yard!!! It will be expensive but we are seriously thinking about it.

01-28-2005, 01:32 PM
Look into getting an invisible fence - I know people don't care for them (not humane etc..) but getting zapped a couple times is WAY better then getting hit by a car.

Friends of ours have lost 2 pups to cars on their street - they now have the invisible fence and a happy new pup.

(Maybe you can get a couple extra collars for the boys too!) Ok Ok just kidding - don't flame me! :)

Oh, I'm so sorry about Jack. :( ((((hugs))))

I was actually just looking at the different invisible fences. Looks pretty easy and MUCH cheaper then a privacy fence!!!! Do you know what kind of fence your friend got? There are so many kinds and they are all for dogs 15-220 lbs. Bostons usually only get to 9-13 lbs!!!

Thanks for the hugs Islander. :grouphug:
