Does Nutella Qualify as Lunch?

Seriously, I need help. I need to create a better eating habit for myself during my weekdays while I work.

I just walked in to the kitchen to look for lunch for myself. I completely glazed over the fruits and vegetables in the fridge like they were they last kid in grade school that anyone wanted on their team during gym class.

What did I grab?

Yogurt? No.

Cheese? No.

Tomato juice? Hahahaha.

20130313-121211.jpgI didn’t even realize I did it. It’s like I blacked out, and when I came to, I was standing in my kitchen with a spoon in one hand, a Nutella jar in the other and I was already going in for my second helping as I thought to myself how awesome this would probably taste in coffee.

Note to self, try this tomorrow morning. 

No, wait, stop. Guh, I need help. I am turning 40 soon.

Okay, really soon.

Okay, tomorrow!

I need to put together a work at home eating plan or something. And I think I need to superglue the top of that Nutella jar on. That will teach my over-eating split personality.

I’m open to suggestions. What websites do you turn to for eating healthy, motivation and ideas?

I am also open to condolences on the whole ’40’ thing.

    I try to keep some hard boiled eggs in the fridge at all times… My kids love them and they make a perfect companion for a lazy eggs and toast (and Nutella!) lunch / snack!

    Hope you have a great birthday!

      Thanks Mel. I like the egg idea and will buy some extra to try it out.

    Try this fancy recipe that my three year old came up with:

    Take a piece of bread, toast it, then slather it with Nutella. THEN slather the Nutella with peanut butter! Oh yeah, baby!

    Throw in a couple of apple slices to scrape the plate clean of all the gooey drips, and I do believe you have yourself a lunch of champions!

    Enjoy your birthday, Sheri! Once you’re here, you realize it’s not so bad…

      Thanks Kimberley. We still need to make a date for coffee.

    Happy early birthdya, Sheri!

    And for the record, I am 33 and will fully admit to eating peanut butter straight out of the jar with a spoon. In fact, I am pretty sure that is how 80% of the jar is actually consumed. :-)

    You are not alone hah

      Thanks Soozle. I’m starting to think that PB and Nutella should just come with a spoon attached to the jar.

    I’m the same way – when I’m home alone I can’t be bothered with a healthy lunch. I hit up the health food store and bought some smoothie extras – now I just drink a smoothie, or eat a luna bar etc. when I’m hungry.
    And Happy birthday Dude! Best wishes and hope you have a great day, you’re the greatest friend a girl could wish for and you deserve only the best!

      Thanks Nadine. I need to stock up on ‘deterrents’. Just healthier stuff to keep me away from the junk. And thanks on the birthday wishes.
