Success Among the Walnuts
Posted by Living, Learning, Eating at 1:22 PM
It's about the fact that I have successfully gained twenty-some pounds and am now at a healthy weight.
YAY ME! :) For those of you that are still working on it, persist! The pay off is awesome - I feel so accomplished and healthy. I still have to get used to my new body, though, with my new feminine curves and soft bits. Sometimes I catch random guys staring at me on the street and people stop me (not too rarely) to tell me that I'm beautiful. That's definitely odd, since I've never been the pretty (try awkward, or weird-looking) one. But I can't say that I mind it, and I'd call it a lovely plus to growing up and gaining health. ;)
Anyway, my good health warranted a celebration. And what better way to celebrate than with a good book and a delicious snack plate - featuring Artisana's organic walnut butter?
A ripe banana, granola, quark, cinnamon, and Artisana's walnut butter.
The nut butter is made out of organic walnuts and organic cashews, but you don't really taste the cashews - they're mainly just there to make the texture awesome. It tasted mild and walnutty and delicious. This was a tasty snack plate, indeed!
The squeeze packs are too cute and I bet they'd be super-handy for travel, work, and marathon shopping. ;) Don't forget to enter my giveaway, so you can win your own set of squeeze packs and an 8oz jar of your choice (including the walnut butter!) nut butter from Artisana!
Some close-ups, because they're pretty...
Anyway, I just wanted to share my good news! I wouldn't mind gaining a few more pounds, but I"m glad that I no longer need to. Eating doesn't have to be work at all, anymore. Now, when I sit down to an ice cream sundae, it's purely because I want to - and I don't have to chase it with a PB sandwich, a banana, granola, and some chocolate. Unless I'm still hungry, of course!
What's your latest success?
