What Was I Thinking?!

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Ugh. Yes I know not the best way to start a blog but I did something not 'right bright' as my grandmother used to say. So I have this desire for bologna (I know yhew), but when I was younger we used to fry it and it was so good. I get to the store and I see that bologna is on sale for $1. So I grab it without even looking at the packaging except to check the expiration date. What is so bad is my other foods I took time check the nutritional facts. I even compared items and put stuff back. So why on earth did I buy something soley on price?

I fixed two slices of the junk today. Yes you read right...junk. I couldn't even eat it all because it was way too salty and tasted just bad. So I'm entering food on the tracker and finally I check the back and one 1 lousy slice it's jam packed with 540 mg of sodium!

If anything this was a reminder lesson to read packaging for all. I'm glad I only paid $1 because I will not be eating anymore of this stuff. I wouldn't even feel right giving it away. If I ever have a bologna crave I'm just going to have to say leave what is in the past in the past.

Well...thanks for reading and hope you join me in reading ALL the labels.

    You probably didn't look at the nutrition because you already knew it wasn't the healthiest thing in the store, but you wanted it, right. It happens sometimes. Sometimes we just want what we want, regardless of the nutritional facts. I've done it. I still do it. But WTG on throwing the rest of it out! You had your fix and now you're done! Good job.

    BTW: There are RESTAURANTS--yes Restaurants--that serve bologna!!! I saw them on the Travel Channel.... fine dining establishments. LOL To each his own, right? LOL
