I just zoomed in from a haircut at 1:00 and was famished - long workout today at the gym and only an apple since my breakfast at 7:00 a.m. My husband forgot his lunch, so I ate his ham-on-wheat, and treated myself to a package of Sensible Portions Rosemary Olive Oil Garden Veggie Straws that I'd packed for him.
Now, before I go on, know this about me: I am not a sandwich & chips kinda girl. No, lunch for me is usually a giant salad with beans and some sort of low-calorie dressing. Or leftovers from the night before. Or 1/2 cup of cottage cheese with fruit or black pepper. And I don't like potato chips that much. No, if I'm going to indulge in a crunchy, junky snack, I'll go for the crunchy Cheetos, or some Cheez-its (hmmm, sensing a theme).
Anyway, back to the loving. It wasn't the ham, no, that's delicious, but it's deli ham (it's the hand-tied maple ham from Whole Foods, if you're curious - uncured and SO delicious). It was the Veggie Straws - these, my friends, are super duper delicious. Very crunchy, sorta salty, and with just a touch of rosemary flavor. These were the perfect counterpoint to the slightly sweet ham. And at 135 cal./bag (1 oz.), not a budget-breaker. I hadn't tried these until today - picked them up in a 24-pack (assorted flavors) at Costco for $8.99.
P.S. I ate another bag just now. That good! A must-try!
