I have a friend at work named Susan. Maybe you remember me mentioning her in the past. She's pretty cool, I guess. Just kidding...she's awesome. And she counts points with me. Support at work is nice, seeing as how that's where I spend all of my time.
Today she had a crab salad from Subway (5 points plus for two scoops of crab, 0 for all of the veggies she had on there) and while it she wasn't hungry when she finished, she wasn't satisfied either. And you know what that left her? Crabby.
Sorry I couldn't resist.
This concept is something that I think about a lot...being full vs being full and satisfied. Or sassi-fied, if you'd rather. While it's not hard to get full, it's more challenging to get sassi-fied.
What are your thoughts on this? How do you ensure that you eat healthy, yet feel satisfied. And please don't say "I just love salads!" Because I love salads too but having just that for lunch probably isn't goingn to do it for me unless it's got something fried nestled in the lettuce...
Lucily my lunch, which was a low yolk egg salad sandwich, turned out to be quite satisfying. The entire can of green beans I had with it were good, too. So here's the egg salad recipe...you know, just in case you didn't get your deviled egg fill yesterday.
Seriously, those things are dangerous.
