Kid In A Candy Store

Heyyyyyy Happy Monday!

Who watched the Super Bowl last night? Sad to say, I did not! I just can't get into football- and since I was "alone" (I'm never really alone.. just no man LIVING in my house) I read a book and fell asleep early! It was a nice relaxing night.

So I loved seeing all your comments about my stupid post! I have some new readers and followers to the blog too- so here's your official WELCOME to my world. OMG you guys are in for a trip, let me tell you! There's always something going on! I honestly have no clue where that last post came from!! (From the depths of my 15 year boy brain...... yea!)

I just wanted to tell you all how easy it is to make lunches. Seriously! I see all these complex salads and wraps- and I know I know- to you they are easy. But for me? When I have about 2 minutes to heat something up or bust. I heat something up in two minutes...
Last week, I went all out and gave into a craving.

Wait .... WTF?! Dunkin Donuts?................

Here's what went into it:

From the left.. Boars Head Cooked Ham (it's gluten and preservative free, which means it doesn't bug my stomach out.), Rice "cheese". It's kind of gross, but it tastes like regular processed cheese - you know like the Kraft singles, so I don't complain too much, and a GF/DF bagel.
The end result was a ham & cheese on a bagel. So delish it was ridic. Plus it wasn't laden with heavy gross nasty stuff like the ones from Dunkins.

OK So obviously, I lose some credibility because I did not add egg to my sandwich. But you can see the difference for sure in the sodium content alone! 1470 mg turned into 790mg!!!! No bloat or thirstiness after this little piece of heaven. My only thing is, this had pretty much had no fat in it. A little fat goes a LONG way. But like me, it's not perfect- but it does the trick when I've got 2 minutes to spare and need to grab something real quick. And it FELT like a splurge for lunch because usually I am heating up soup and slurping away in between calls.

Speaking of soup. Today for lunch I had the most amazing soup ever. Ever ever ever. Dr. McDougall lentil soup. Um holy deliciousness. I did not stop to take a picture. I did not think about taking one until after I was done and I said, damn. I should have taken a picture!

Here is the box.
I'll tell you what it tasted like.......

BEEF STEW. But it's vegan you say.

But it tastes like there is beef in there!!!!

Ladies, serve this to your man and see if he notices there is no beef! Or be selfish and keep it all to yourself. Either way, it will be enjoyed.
I'll try and take a picture later on of it.. Cuz.... Imma be eating this for dinner too!
Tonight is dance class. I'm going knee pain or not! I've been doing good with my "non-impact" weights and yoga and even though my knee is still bothering me, I am frothing at the mouth for a little adult interaction time and some booty shaking.
Wow........... that's what she said!


  1. girrrrrl whatcha trying to do -- put dunkin' outta business? Do it. I'd totes rather go to the cafe de Amy :)

  2. thanks for your comments on my blog. I am so bad at cooking. I manage to burn even simple things. I'm getting better though and I'm finding it fun :-)


  3. you are so awesome and so sweet!
    LOVE what you did with yo sandwich for real!!!

  4. I also did not watch the superbowl. Football and me-not so much. Except for this weird Notre Dame football phase I went through. Who knows. Anyway I was glad the Saints won. My sister did her undergrad in New Orleans and was there when Katrina hit so New Orleans kind of has a special place in our family.

    I love bagel sandwiches! One of my favorites.

  5. Reading your blog makes me so hungry! Haha for healthy foods, that is.

  6. omg i love lentils so much! hope your dance classw as fun and your knee didn't give you too much trouble!

  7. For realz? I want to come over for breakfast, just throw an egg on mine hehe.

    That soup sounds yummy! I've gotta find some asap!

  8. Mmmmmmm Mmmmmmm that breakfast sandwich puts DD to shame!!!!

    No no making up holidays, it is real!!!

    Oh my have fun with the snow, it is no fun here!!

    Yes I did have a vitatop brownie and icecream delish! Yum ! Yay that you had a brownie sundae! Where are the pics?!!!

  9. HAha, it doesn't take too much to recreate that processed taste of Kraft singles. ;-)

    Btw, just read your comment..I do hope you find it in your heart to forgive the poor, socially inept guy. You don't have to be best buddies with him....but if you do see him, a little smile and a nod would do wonders to both him and you! Haha, but I agree...that was one of the worst social faux pas ever!

  10. I don't have that brand of soup here but you totally made me want to make lentil soup! Plus I think I found a pretty good recipe :)
