Coming clean: I sit at a computer during the day and at night. And on weekends. For work. For fun activity and personal projects.
It’s my writing tool, my publishing platform, my darkroom, my editing suite, and theater, television, radio, jukebox, newspaper, magazine, universal messaging system …
And then there’s the smart phone and tablet for those moments I stray from the mother ship.
The sad truth. There it is.
And when I’m working, playing, watching, listening, processing and creating, I often like to snack.
Even though my habits are more sedentary and less healthy, that doesn’t mean I don’t care about what I eat. I strive to live up to my mantra: “Snack smartly.”
This week’s smart snack from Trader Joe’s: Snow peas.
Smart snack: Snow peas
With bags of chips, cans of nuts and boxes of cookies, I have to ration my intake very consciously. If not, the entire contents of each container quickly and mysteriously vanishes. How does that happen?
Watching or rationing is not required when eating snow peas, the prototype healthy snack. Check out the related links below to find out just how healthy.
Thank you, Trader Joe’s!
