Good Monday morning, all --
I left home this morning, headed to the library for a long day of research and writing. Realized I would be hungry while I was here, but didn't want to leave to go out for what prob would be some kind of fast food. I decided I would smuggle food into the library instead (which is where I am right now) and tried the grocery store on the way. Probably everyone in the universe realizes this but me, but I found absolutely great "fast" good there, particularly in the deli area. Examples: two hard-boiled eggs, peeled - 59c; Del Monte Fruit Naturals, a cup of just fruit in different kinds of mixes - $1.49. I ended up with some Wasa fiber crispbread ($2.79) plus a tuna "medley" from Bumble Bee called "Easy Peel Sensations" in lemon-pepper flavoring. It's an individual portion of seasoned tuna (for spreading on those crispbreads) for $2.49. Oh, and it's a whopping 130 calories with 4 grams of fat and 21 grams of protein. Pretty cool. Anyway, my point is there are yogurts, those little BabyBel cheeses, cottage cheese, crackers, all kinds of fruit and lots of other really good, nutritious stuff -- plus the plastic utensils to eat it with. My eyes were kind of opened to the possibilities, so I thought I'd share.
