Look out below!

I have been snacking a lot at night after the kids are all sleeping. This habit I've gotten into really has stalled the whole weight-loss progress so I need to talk to the lady that keeps buying all that junk.

Hi Heather? Yeah, it's me Heather. Quit buying all those delicious snacks like cookies and ice cream. You say you're buying it for the kids but you're fooling no one.

There. Well, we'll see if the old bag listens.

Believe it or not, I've cut down on the number and variety of snacks that I have on hand in our house, even for the kids. Truth be told, I still end up throwing away a bunch of food that has gone stale every time I clean out the cupboards.

Pictured here, a rare look at an organized cupboard. It has been this way for almost two weeks.


Pictured here? The usual CF cupboard. Hard hat area.
We're actually doing fairly well in the snack department with the kids most days. K will often ask for canned pineapple or fresh carrots or grapes before he'll ask for crackers. And M will settle for the healthy option if the other choice is no snack at all.

What's in your cupboard? Spill it (wear your hard hat) and you could win free groceries. Who couldn't use free food? It could even be healthy food if you're into that sort of thing.

We do not have a lot of traditional snack food around here. We are more fruit & veggie snackers. I am terrible if it is there I WILL eat it. No matter how much I do not want to!
