You can never have too much bread, eggs,cheese, and vanilla flavored Silk Soy Milk in the house. Same goes for red wine.
It’s not the best idea to by a giant bag of UTZ Potato Chips on Sale at the Rite Aid just because they’re having a sale on them – 2giant bags for $4, or 1 giant bag for $2.
Forget the fact that potato chips and me broke up long ago. I bought a bag and opened them up the second I got in the car!
When your snowed in you eat, like a lot more than you should, for several reasons.
- It's snowing
- Your constantly shoveling snow – like every couple of hours -so your freaking hungry
- It’s cold and your freaking craving carbs.
Ironically the whole shoveling snow phenomenon allows you to dip into that giant bag of UTZ Potato chips many times without causing massive increases in blood sugars. I guess that whole exercise helps to lower your blood sugar thing really does work!
During Snowmageddon 2010 local weather folks/newscasters were popping their corks at every turn because this was their chance to take over the airwaves ALL DAY, for hours, and hours, and hours.
Ironical I know, but local weather folk in Philly actually cause more traffic headaches because they parked their big humungous news vans in the middle of the road and would constantly run out into traffic to interview people stuck in their cars or the one idiot who decided it was just a super terrific idea to wear surf shorts in a snowstorm.
Never lock your car doors during a blizzard, unless your absolutely, 100% positive you have a can of Lock De-Icer.
Snowmageddon had me so concerned about losing power that I actually tweeted about what to do with the $1000 bucks of unopened insulin in my fridge if the power did indeed go out. The term CHILL OUT took on a whole new meaning~
Hot chocolate is very tasty in the cold snowy weather and is not super high in carbs. Especially the Starbucks canister of Mocha Powder I bought the day after Christmas for 50% off. Only 8 grams of carbs per Tablespoon and 0.5 grams of fat, and tastes fantastic!
SO YUMMY. And did I mention it was 50% off?
When one is in Florida during the first part of the Snowmageddon and was FORCED to change one’s flight to return a day later (late Sunday night) than originally planned (late Saturday night,) even though she knew that another storm was arriving on Tuesday night, said person should have just stayed in Florida until Thursday or Friday and skipped Snowmageddon 2010 all together!
