NO MORE Pop Tarts, and an Easy Lentil Salad

I was perfectly sugar free for nearly a month and then…. Pop Tarts happened.  Gluten free pop tarts, or toaster pastries, whatever you want to call them.  I hadn’t had one in 13 years so you can understand my excitement when I saw them sitting on the shelf in my local Albertsons.  I brought them home and devoured them only to find that they weren’t even that good, kind of gross actually.  But once my brain got the effects of that sugar I was a hopeless case and I kept eating them.   I lost all control and I need to get myself together again.  My lunches need to look like this photo above… I’m hoping this will motivate me to get back on track. 🙂

EASY Lentil Salad

A couple hand fulls of Baby Romain lettuce

About a half cup cooked lentils

1/2 avocado

Olive Oil, lemon juice, and salt – or your favorite dressing.

Toss ingredients and enjoy!

    So funny because a few weeks ago, I was starving during class. I went out to the vending machine and saw that they had pop tarts. I was thinking I hadn’t had one since I was probably 12, so I bought a pack. I took one bite and thought it was gross….but then devoured the entire thing and wanted more the next day! What the heck?!
