Laptop Lunch #4

Laptop Lunch #4

Clockwise, starting top-left: Fat-free yogurt with cherries and grapes. I cut the fresh cherries in half to get the pit out. Then though that that looked keen so added some halved grapes. Pretty tasty. The cherries fresh are a little tart, so is the yogurt, but the grapes helped calm everyone down. We then have more grapes– can you tell I love grapes? And under those grapes are some leftover apple bits. And the next container has — surprise — more grapes and some apple slices. I put the skin side up and didn’t add anything to it to see how badly it’d turn brown. Didn’t do badly at all! That’s an organic Fuji apple. Num! Last, but not least, we have left-over brown fried rice with a sprinkle of parsley on top cause I was feeling cheeky. I did microwave the rice for about one minute but it was fine cold. Tasted better at least at room temperature, though.

This is a WW Core meal.

Rant: Organic apples with stickers

Organic Produce
Organic produce display at Food Lion. They have stickered apples in plastic wrapped trays!

I bought organic apples, strawberries and kiwis last night. I grabbed an apple this morning. In order to grab an apple, I had to open the plastic wrapped tray of three apples. I pulled one out and put it in my lunch. Then at lunch, I discovered two stickers on the apple saying, “Hey, I’m organic.” I took off the sticker and it left all this goop behind.

What the frog! Why? Why! First, wasteful packaging to gather up three in the first place. Then, to add insult to injury, they put on a sticker that is about impossible to get its residue off?
