Traveling frequently I practically live on cold cuts and carrots. Every now and then I really enjoy a salad or a “You Pick 2” from a chain restaurant, Panera. My personal favorite is the Asian sesame chicken salad with chicken noodle soup. When I get this the cashier asks if I would like a bakery item for only 99 cents extra and I say “yes.” I am handed a ticket to redeem at the bakery that day so I can come back and choose what I’d like after I’ve eaten my lunch/dinner. Instead, I hand back the ticket and ask that it be given to someone else that day.
This isn’t the kindest thing I’ve done by any means but it’s something that I love doing. I’m obeying my diet and still enjoying my cookie…only better.
