Since Tracy and I are both following Weight Watchers we have spent a LOT of time this weekend discussing food strategies, stuff we like to eat when we are healthy, junk we like to eat when we are not, and planning for our next meals.
We decided yesterday morning that we wanted pizza for dinner (hey, we are in New Jersey where the pizza is fantastic) so we needed a very light lunch (meaning few calories) so we went on a hunt for spaghetti squash...no luck. However, when we had decided on hummus and veggie pitas and were looking for Laughing Cow wedges, we came across something Fat Free, Sugar Free and Calorie Free in the style of marshmallow. MARSHMALLOW!
My sister and I do NOT have the same tastes in lots of stuff...for example, television. Last night we spent most of the night making fun of each other via Facebook statuses (she likes home shows and Friday Night Lights, I like Wife Swap and anything with a competition). Thursday night we watched Spectacular! and while the lead character embarrassed me, I liked it and she made fun of it the whole time.
However, we absolutely DO agree on the fabulosity of marshmallow. So we bought the "marshmallow dip" and ate a whole thing of strawberries. Today we bought more strawberries (organic this time, that helps the chemicals even out), and devoured a bunch more at lunch today. At that point, we both took a more careful look at the jar, and decided maybe we should look up some of the ingredients. One of which was xanthan gum, which interestingly is the byproduct of a bacteria that is fattened up on corn.
So for the sake of HEALTH we ate a jar of triple filtered water and bacteria shit. on strawberries.
Maybe we should try it with bananas next.
