The Queen's Portioner
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
That is what I need - a person who lives in my kitchen cupboards and is responsible for doling out hard-to-limit edibles to me so I don't pig out.
See, I was in the store yesterday, and I knew I'd finished off my sensible, tasty, yet somewhat boring box of Cascadian Farms Multi-Grain Squares that I sometimes eat for a snack. Right next to the Cascadian Farms selections in our local cereal aisle are the Kashi products. Dangerous! I totally adore Kashi Go-Lean Crunch in the Honey Almond Flax variety, but, sadly, I would love to adore it by the bucket full, which is not conducive to weight maintenance. If I had that little fella in the cupboard, I wouldn't have had to talk myself out of the Kashi all together :-( I could open the pantry and he would always be ready with a level 1/2 cup of Kashi, 14 almonds, 3 Rye Krisp crackers, 15 Goldfish pretzels or 1/2 tablespoon of almond butter. Whatever the desired portion is, ready to go. I wouldn't even have to get out my scale or anything!
Lots of times, it's just easier to not even buy the stuff in the first place, and that's what I chose to do this time. Walked right on by. But in my calorie-counting dreams, that dood is in there waiting!
I think I'll call him Scoop...
