Top of the Muffin, to ya! - Week 5

This week, I didn't exercise like I should, I didn't drown myself with water like I should, but I didn't do anything horrible, either.  I didn't hurtle into the fruit roll-up binge zone because finally, finally, we have a kitchen stocked with really healthy food.

This week, my staples included:

Twinings Green Tea Lemon. That's right.  Can you hear me down there? I'm shouting from the pinnacle of snobbiness. With my pinky in the air.

Sweetening things (tea, coffee) with agave nectar, which, if you've never tried it, is awesome because it doesn't cause blood sugar spikes (..meaning I don't whisper sweet nothings to Harper's graham crackers), it doesn't crystallize like honey, and, for all the Weight Watchers, it has a gram of fiber per serving. Delish.

Boca Burgers. No bun, mustard, pickle. Boom! Vegan-ed. Brandon had a bite and said it tasted like a North Carolina Public School Rib-e-que. Don't lie and say you've never had one of those. ...and with that, I'm off the pinnacle.

Pop Chips. Vegan excellence. Not fried, not baked. The best thing about them is that there are only three servings in one bag, so if you I go buck wild, all is not lost. I'm impressed with all varieties except Salt and Vinegar.. which is strange, because I think I could eat a salt and vinegar-flavored Rainbow flip-flop.

Saving the best for last. Courtesy of our extremely awesome, seriously carnivorous, open-minded friends, last night, I had SoyRizo for dinner. Now, I haven't actually prepared it.  Bless their hearts, our friends went so far as to dispose of the package before I got there so I didn't have to see the nitty gritty, which, they allow me, is quite.. pasty. But, it's delicious, it tastes exactly like sausage and I am DYING to try some recipes with it!

Week 4 Result - Down 1 lb. What else is new. Happy Valentine's Day!
