one of my new favorite American chains, too yummy
Category Archives: snacks & drinks
I’m seriously trying to eat healthier this year, after a long series of occasional half-assed attempts & fleeting fascinations with nutrition info in the past. I recently discovered the Dr. Oz show too, which is now one of my favorite parts of day time TV.
We’ll see how this goes… heh, no but for real, so far.. not so bad. So who knows, this might actually be real progress, or so I hope. But yeah, either way it’s worth putting in the effort, cuz’ I’ve been spending a little too much money on vending machines & eating out in recent times, & there are a couple pieces of clothing I’m not ready to let go of simply cuz’ they don’t fit so nice anymore.
Now, being the neurotic numbers nerd that I am, I’ve found this BMI Calculator at the National Heart Lung & Blood Institute’s website handy, & possibly a little more trustworthy than others. However, we still know what they say, for a more acurate depiction consult a physician, did I mention I need to save money though?
Anyway, I’ve seen friends try the South Beach Diet, Weight Watchers, or just simply go vegan, & I’ve observed mild success as well as unenviable failure. As for me, I’ve pretty much concluded that there are only two food rules that work for me, especially if this is going to be a lifestyle change, & those are: that it’s not what I eat, it’s how much I eat (cuz’ there are certain guilty pleasures I doubt I’ll ever have the discipline to quit) & that variety’s the spice of life, I love the adventure of trying some new foods, & that’s probably my best chance at rounding out the load of vitamins & minerals we’re all supposed to be getting as well, right? & Please, if there’s something delicious you know of that you’re not sure I’ve tried, feel free to leave a suggestion in the comments.

Mountain Dew is the best pop I know
nothin’ else for me, none,
no, a day without it, I can’t go on
other pop can’t compare to this one.
It helps me to sleep,
It helps me to wake,
though I can’t
drink it with cake.
Its my life force
it flows through my veins
without it I’m nothing
I go insane.
From the green bottle or can
to the liquid it holds
from the bubbles it makes
to the sweet sizzling sounds.
I savor every bit
don’t waste a drop
so I keep drinking
and can’t stop.

defined by Snickers as (a noun meaning) “A heightened yet fleeting state of accomplishment that makes you realize how unbelievably unmotivated you normally are.”
Mountain Dew has been selling 3 “Dew Drinker Designed” flavors: Revolution, Super Nova, & Voltage, which all have added ginseng, & I’ve been drinking all three of them lately, they all seem fairly good, if you’re into soda pop with a shot of BVO in the first place, & apparently a person can go online & vote for what flavor he or she likes the best, but I doubt I’ll be taking part in that election, I’m just getting a kick out of mixing things up a bit.
food for thought turns into thought for food as well
“FreeRice is a sister site of the world poverty site, Poverty.com.
FreeRice has two goals:
- Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
- Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
This is made possible by the sponsors who advertise on this site.
Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your vocabulary can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.
Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide. Thank you.”
I’ve been at the website today, got to 1300 grains of rice, with my highest & current vocab level at 36
