I hope you’re having the most amazing week ever. This is my puppy schlamuppy in the picture post-grooming. She says I Love You. And by I Love You she means, “Do you have a sandwich, and can I have it?”
Speaking of food (hello…is that not why we’re all here?), today I so totally overdid it with these amazing, crunchy green beans I bought from my virgin trip to Sprouts.
My teen and I were out putting gas into the car last night, and I looked at her sweet, cute face, with her adorable driver’s permit, and I said, “Hey! Let’s go check out the new Sprouts store! ”
So she put her cute little feet on the pedals, said, “Yes, mom,” in her sweet little voice, with those adorbs dimples, and she drove me to what I shall forever more refer to only as Organic Crack Town.
For those of you who’ve never heard of the store peddling freaky-awesome things I want to put into my face, Spr–Organic Crack Town is essentially a Farmer’s Market inside of a brick and mortar store. It’s largely produce, with a ton of bins of the neatest stuff ever–like Pink Himalayan Sea Salt and reasonably priced gluten-free flours, granolas (the cereals, not the hippies), mixes, you name it!
So, when I saw the crispety crunchety roasted, salted, seriously crunchy greenity beanities in the clear, unassuming container, I was like, Hells to the yes! Bring it!
About $50 lighter in my wallet, and with bags laboring from the haul of Mountain Zevia, two bunches of gorgeous flowers, a loaf of challah, frying cheese and liver sausage (shoosh. I don’t even want to hear it), I got home and ate a crunchy little green bean. And then I ate two. And I didn’t even like them. At first.
But then something changed, and today I managed to eat all of the rest of them. These little greens beans are crunchy. Like crunchy crunchy. Little bites of jolly green giant heaven in your mouth, exploding all over your teeth.
And I ate all of them.
Damn you! Damn you, crunchy green beans!
I am still hugging the empty container. A little.
The moral of the story: Don’t go into Sprouts unless you plan to possibly eat a lot of things you never even knew existed before you instructed your new teen driver to take you there.
Now on to how I’ve been doing with my weight loss and continued sussing out of foods to which I’m intolerant or allergic to… Be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled share my progress and thoughts, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian).

I ate this:
Breakfast: Pizza Scrapings from 3 slices of Papa Murphy’s Cowboy (cheese, olives, mushrooms, sausage, onions) and from 1 slice Hawaiian (cheese, Canadian bacon, pineapple)
Lunch: Crunchy green beans from Sprouts (like most of the huge container). They are addicting. Do not buy them. I repeat: put down the clear plastic container and back away slowly.
Snack: A gummy bear and a yogurt pretzel and about 6 corn chips
Dinner: Cottage cheese, seeds, tomato, olives, cheddar cheese, and Parmesan cheese (I ate so much earlier in the day I’m still full, but I wanted some nibbles)
Notes: I am definitely going to eat less green beans for a while…
What I learned:
I feel really pleased that the site is really spreading via different websites.
Thank you so much!
