These Are My Confessions

In honor of Usher, Becky Bloomwood and our fave hot bloggy mama, this post is dedicated to CONFESSIONS.

Confession #1: I ate this breakfast of PB+B+C toast at 7:25am in brown tights, Medusa hair and a MN Gophers t-shirt.  I hope that gives you enough of a mental image to enjoy without giving you blood-curdling nightmares.


Confessions #2: I sometimes lie about exactly how good food is.  Unless something is ridiculously gross, I usually pass it by as being good.  This doesn’t happen often, but it’s true.

Like today, I had high hopes for this soup – it’s Amy’s, and it’s Indian.  What’s not to love?  It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t like I will buy this again either.



Confession #3: Sometimes I don’t wash my veggies.  Like today, I peeled the carrots but definitely did not wash them first. I know, sound the food blogging police and lock me up Martha Stewart-style right now! Insider trading and not washing your veggies are both heinous crimes after all.


Confession #4: As much as I believe in portion sizes, I don’t.  I guzzled these 60 calorie tubes before you can say Kate-Gosselin-wants-to-be-in-movies?!  Say that three times fast without laughing.

P.S. Apple Strawberry is AMAZING.  It has currently overtaken Apple Cinnamon’s #1 ranking.


Confession #5: I don’t floss as much as I should.  This has nothing to do with the milk chocolate caramel cookie I ate below. After going to the dentist this morning, I feel as though I really need to shape up.  What’s the best way to do that? Announce it on your blog for the whole world wide web to read.


Confession #6: I don’t normally like chocolate + fruit together.  My two exceptions?  Chocolate-covered strawberries and this dessert-esque yog mess:

1/2 cup homemade organic Greek yog
3 squares Lindt Touch of Sea Salt Dark Chocolate
sprinkle of flax
dollop of raspberry preserves
drizzle of agave


Confession #7: Thanks to your awesome feedback, I found a “High Sensitivity” setting on my camera which seems to have helped out my crappy picture taking (due to winter’s ominous darkness).  I mean, this roasted acorn squash with a drizzle of maple syrup and cinnamon tasted better than it looks, but at least the pic is clear!


Confession #8: I have discussed this before, but it seems as though making a to-do list actually makes me get less done.  Maybe it’s because I have never liked people or to do lists telling me what I should do.  So here is me leaving my apartment and getting things done…WITHOUT A LIST!!!

Alright kiddos, pony up because it is your turn.

Give us your confession of the day! I just gave you eight!
