Gum It Up
I had a really busy day! I ran errands, had a two hour appointment across town, but still found time to go to the grocery store and re-stock my fresh produce stash.
But I found it in a 3-pack. Whew!
I came home and made a salad.
Dressed the salad with Orange Coconut Lemon Pepper Vinaigrette
And added Sesame Ginger Maple Tofu
Snacked on some Cinnamon & Sugar Peanut Buttery Chickpea “Peanuts”
From my last post about Willpower & Restraint, I loved hearing whether you consider yourself to have either, and in what situations you are better than in others. For as much as I do love to spend money and treat myself, I can be the polar opposite, too, and talk myself out of purchases. Many of you mentioned you’re similar.
And yes, it is a great mall. For those of you who don’t have a mall in which you really need to “try” too hard to practice restraint, just move to San Diego. We have plenty of restraint-and-willpower-worthy malls!
Dessert: Raw Vegan Apple Crumble
1. Do you like gum? If so, how many pieces per day do you chew?
Yes, I do. I’ve gone through phases of life where years have gone by without chewing any and then, bam, I re-discover my love of gum all over.
I have a 3 stick per day, maximum. Any more than that and I can feel my jaw hurt!
2. Favorite gum?
Currently love Extra Key Lime, Extra Strawberry Shortcake, and for awhile there was an Extra Mango Smoothie that I adored but I haven’t seen that in six months.
I prefer fruity gums to minty ones. For minty flavors, I just want mints, usually.
3. Did you get a workout in? Do you like to chew gum while you’re working out?
Yes and it was sunny, but cold! If you missed my dressing for winter workouts post, I wore the same thing today that I always do.
And yes, I put a stick of key lime gum in when I set out for a 20 minute run. And it was great!
