What I'm Loving: 7.29.09

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!
