Eat As I Say, Not As I Eat

Posted on February 4, 2010. Filed under: Daily Update, Product Review | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Hi, Pies ๐Ÿ™‚ (I’ve had such an urge to say that since Erin left the blogosphere :-/). Just a quickie(and early) one tonight.ย The moral of today(if you can find any “moral” on the internet): Don’t be a hypocrite. Now let me show you all the ways in which I’m a hypocrite saying that ๐Ÿ˜€

Lightlife Sausage With Cheese, Green Beans, Broccoli

Peanut Flour Greek Yogurt

What I say: I have a slight gluten intolerance.

What I do: Eat processed soy with concentrated wheat gluten.

What I say(now): Oops. It’s… erm… tasty?

Something here–maybe the gluten in the sausage–did not sit well with me during Greek History. It also might have been the yogurt; I’m not sure that much cream should meet that much salt. It might also just have been this was a complete protein bomb and that’s never good. Who’s to say? The lesson? Know yourself, and what you should do, and(hopefully) do it. I know certain things make my tummy funky, and that I do best with a plate comprised mostly of fat, low-cal vegetables, and a small amount of protein. I will try to do that.

Like I said, that made Greek History not so fun for me, and Latin not so fun for the people around me I’m sure(use your imagination). After that, though, I was free… from school at least. I love these 3-day work weeks. The first thing I did was run into my room and brew plenty of coffee. Decaf coffee works for me. So do I show restraint? Not at all.

The Wow Baking Company Cookie

Oprah this afternoon was all about diabetes, eating healthy, and working out. What did I do? I reached for an oversized chocolate chip cookie from the WOW Baking Company, knowing that I might not get a good run in until Monday(more on that in a bit).

The Wow Baking Company Chocolate Chip Cookie

I’m sorry, Oprah, butย this cookie was amazing! Eatย as Oprah says, not as I do. But, if you are going to have a cookie, why not a big, soft, gluten-free one? I got this as well as some others to review in the mail today and clearly it did not last long. But it was so delicious and unexpectedly soft, I truly truly loved it. And my stomach feels fine, too. Maybe that’s because it didn’t have gluten? More likely because chocolate chips and sugar have never been particular stomach-troublers. Totally worth every sugary, gluten-free calorie ๐Ÿ˜€

And what am I doing now? Why, waiting for my dad to come and then go to Chocolate Fest. Yes. Chocolate Fest. Real healthy right? It only happens once a year(unless you hit up each Whole Foods near you in which case it’s more like 5-6 times in 3 days), so you know I’m going. It’s either going to be really fun, or just a Whole Foods shopping trip(which is also fun). And then I’ll be home for the weekend to do some fun stuff around Boston. Did I mention there’ll be cooking/baking? Oh food processor, how I miss you! And now… Chocolate!

Hey! I’m lactose-intolerant, so I totally know how it is when you just totally mess up. :/ That cookie looks sooooooooo thick and chewy and good! I want to reach into the computer and take it from your desk.

Oh my gosh a chocolate fest sounds like your version of heaven! ENJOY YOURSELF!!!

Chocolate fest? Seriously? I want to go!!
That souds like my idea of a dream….you are so lucky :/ Have a great time!

I’m pretty sure chocolate fest is evan heaven! Have fun!

That cookie looks amazing ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve had some great experience with gluten free desserts in the past (I had a realllyyy good gluten free brownie once) and some awful experiences (nasty artificial tasting lemon cookie) so I’m a bit wary..but I will definitely buy one of these if I come across it!

Dude I can’t find that agave smart balance anywhere! I don’t think they sell it down here. You need to send me some!

Chocolate fest?! Sounds like my kind of party=) That cookie looks absolutely delish! I hope you have an awesome night hon!

LOL at this:What I say: I have a slight gluten intolerance.

What I do: Eat processed soy with concentrated wheat gluten.

Honestly when people first go vegetarian/vegan or GF…they usually counter that with massive amts of soy and then wonder why they feel crappy. Sorry though that you’re intolerant. I knew that from your posts, but yeah, it sucks, dont i know.

The cookie. GREAT info, i was not familiar w/ those.

And the comment re the vegan blue cheeze with cashews. Tempting and i should play around with it…hmmm….

lol…”Eat as Oprah says and not as I do.” Classic.

i’m mildly allergic to raspberries but every once in a while i just need them so i deal with the scratchy-can’t-really-breathe- throat!

Have a great time at Chocolate Fest! I went to the NYC chocolate show in October…to die for, and so worth it!

have fun at chocolate fest, that sounds awesome! they have somethign simiiar in SF, i think it was in sept. hope you’ll be reunited with your food processor soon. aw i miss erin, good to see you channeling her lol!

I’m always learning hard lessons about what my body hates…one day I’ll have my stomach all figured out!

chocolate fest?!? wooowza you better take some pictures!
thsoe wow cookies look awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ i say EAT IT!!!

Chocolate fest? For serious? I am jealous!!

I hate when my stomach feels crappy bc what I’m eating! But sometimes I eat it anyway because it makes me feel good at the time, and my stomach gets mad at me later (ex: over a pound of veggies)…no bigs.
And chocolate fest sounds AMAZING. I can’t wait to read about it!

chocolate fest?! i think you’re my chocolate male twin…haha.

either way, that or the WF trip will be awesome…i know i’m heading to WF this weekend ๐Ÿ˜‰

You and chocolate fest sounds like a kid in a candy store! Have fun!! Can’t wait to hear about it ๐Ÿ™‚

“Know your body” — you are so right. That cookie looks great, and it’s nice to have a treat ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great time at Chocolate Fest!

It seems like a lot of bloggers are having gluten issues lately. Weird. I’m glad you’re listening to your body ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello! Sorry I’m so behind on my blog reader, but I had to comment. 1, LOVE your blog. You are too funny, and your observations sound like something I would think. Love it.
2, Gorgeous pictures!!!
3. The peanut flour could have set your stomach off. It has happened to me when I used it in cottage cheese, raw type recipes. When it’s baked, it doesn’t bother me. Have a fabulous weekend at home! I also wanted to ask, do your parents’ or close friends/roomie know about your blog?

My dad and most of my close friends know about it. My roommate might have discovered it at the beginning of the year? If he did, he never brought it up. I find I worried about people knowing about it for so long and then once they did they didn’t even care, haha.
