Yes. You heard right. I am eating cookies for dinner. They happen to be amazing, in case you were wondering. The delicious combination of chocolate and pumpkin is pretty sweet (pun intended).
I am telling you this, not as a confession, but as a lesson. I pack my lunch everyday I work but tonight I had to stay late. I packed lunch, but not dinner. So, cookies it is.
Lots of health professionals write about the importance of having a meal plan. Everyone needs to have healthy options on hand for situations such as this. I am typically diligent about making such plans – not today. The bad news is the cookies are going to make me feel horrible later. The good news is that tonight’s nutrition misstep is a great reminder for me to always make sure I have a back up plan.
I know this post is shorter than usual, but please forgive me, pure sugar isn’t quite the fuel my body needs.
Have a wonderful day. I would love to hear from you. Message me here and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
