if there's one thing eating in Harvard dining halls taught me, it's to expect a dessert with lunch and dinner every day, in addition to whatever i might snack on in between meals.
went to a panel where lunch was provided. usually the boxes of sandwiches include chips and a cookie or something. this time? no cookie. and i sat there wishing i had something sweet to sink my teeth into. it took an act of God for me to not go to the hospital cafeteria and buy an unhealthy snack to satisfy the craving right then and there,
but i made it. it's 4 hours later, and i'm finally back in the apartment. instead of eating a giant snickerdoodle cookie (probably 200+ calories) right after lunch, i've just finished a tasty 100 calorie Healthy Choice Greek frozen yogurt--still sweet, but at least a slightly better choice. if i can train myself to not expect a dessert with every meal, i bet i'll be better off than i was before--and i won't blow almost 2 bucks on a cookie almost every afternoon.
