Thought for the Day--April 9, 2011: Got 0? (The Apple, Part 2)
Apples are not only tasty and sweet, with a variety for about every taste and cooking purpose, they are also portable.
For Thursday night's Baltimore Orioles game, I brought much of my own food (and a good thing, too, because the new concessions' provider has done a poor job of "upgrading" the fare and providing affordable low cal options):
--An appleThis fare was supplemented by an overpriced pit beef sandwich ($10.00!!!), which made my wallet much lighter, but it was a better choice than a hot dog. (My plan for this week, and for this week only, is not to use my extra PointsPlus; however, I don't recommend this as a permanent practice).
--Sunflower seeds, 1 ounce in the shell (which I ate on the way to the Ballpark)
--A Fiber Plus bar
--Diet A&W Root Beer (in plastic bottle, no glass or cans are allowed in the park)
--One 5-point portion of pistachios (which I didn't eat, but I ate everything else, lol)
The apple (Gala variety) was, by far, the most satisfying food that night. It was tasty, filling, and had a positive effect on my physical well-being.
Have you noticed how fresh you feel after eating an apple?
It's truly a Wash and Go food.
Be well, my cyber friends.
