There are some days when all you (I) want for lunch is chocolate. Lots of chocolate. And this is from a woman who almost always chooses caramel or vanilla sweets. But not today folks, today chocolate would rule my lunch break. Of course tomorrow is my weigh-in at Weight Watchers and I wanted to stay on track, so I had to mull over my options a little more. I looked out the window at the gray, wet bleakness and thought, “Hell, no!” I’m staying in and looking at Pinterest at lunch. (Awesome Idea BTW)
So I dug into my cubby of napkins, forks, chopsticks, Emergen-C and found this little gem for 7 points. Clearly I took the pic when I was already scraping bottom, but that there is Jif to Go Chocolate Silk Peanut Butter & Chocolate Flavored Spread. 7 WW PointsPlus Value. I paired it with a delectable bag of THE. BEST. PRETZELS. EVER. Seriously. They are Pretzel “Shells” by the Unique Pretzel Bakery, Inc. out of Reading, PA aka Pretzel Country.
Now, I realize for most of you 7 points is a lot to spend on some chocolately peanut butter, but I look at it this way. It’s portioned, it’s portable, it has protein, it’s chocolate AND peanut butter and it’s delicious!
Today’s additional lesson- Know your trigger foods and keep a satisfying option on hand to make them easier to handle.
Enjoy the rest of your day!
