Stuff We Love: Things That Seem Healthy

If there were a twelve step program for Snapea Crisps, I'd be the first in line. Because these things call to me. They haunt me in my dreams. They whisper in my ear, "Just one little itty bitty more won't hurt." Friends I tell you....Snapea Crisps are the devil. They're like crack, cocaine and Everybody Loves Raymond re-runs all rolled into one. They are *highly* addictive.

And that's made all the worse for me because they seem healthy. They're just peas for heaven sakes. And that's pretty much all the enabling I need to tear through a bag of them. Or two. In one sitting. While watching Everybody Loves Raymond.



But that's ok....because when I get stressed about the whole bag (or two) of Snapea Crisps I just inhaled, I just brew myself up another favorite comfort: Yogi Kava Stress Relief Tea. And then the whole world feels better.



But by then see, all of that calm gives me the munchies.... annnnd the cycle repeats itself. This time with Trader Joe's Toasted Pumpkin Seeds. Lightly Salted. Yea... lightly salted like the DEAD SEA is lightly salted maybe. But even with all that salt they still seem healthy. Which makes it all ok. Clearly.

Because pumpkin seeds come from a pumpkin which is, after all, a VEGETABLE.... hmmmm, at least I think it is. Or is it a legume? Maybe. And really, just what is the difference? Anybody....anybody? No.

Well, any which way. In my head pumpkin seeds are healthy which makes them A-Ok with me. Now all I have to do is get past that whole "small things in clumps make me gag" bit and I'll be all set.

But then... that's a different twelve step program altogether.



So....what are YOUR favorite "but they SEEM healthy" vices? I'm just dying to know!

**ETA: Just realized that this is our 500th post....thought that deserved a lil' celebrating!! :) Perhaps, with Snapea Crisps!
