I’ve been getting soup and a fresh herb roll regularly at the Co-op for lunch. One day they put the “healthy granola chocolate chip cookies” at eye level so I got one too. It’s vegan with whole wheat flour and no refined sugar, so I’m sure it’s very good for me, although it’s probably at least 300 calories. So now I have to get the cookie every time. And then I don’t want to finish my soup because I’m so eager to get to the cookie, and then I’m too full.
The solution? Get a cup of soup instead of a bowl.
Life’s pretty good when you can get full from a nutritious lunch for less than $5.
