Lol, I look at how much a bar of chocolate is. Then I figure out how long I need to exercise to burn that off. Boy it sure isnt fair!

Not fair at all!! When I was a kid and had that kind of metabolism, I was skinny and couldn't afford things like chocolate. Now that I am older and have the money, there goes the metabolism....

New favorites are the Flat Earth Fruit Chips...1/2 serving of fruit in every ounce. Now if I could only resist the urge to eat what? like 6 oz at a sitting!

Oh dill chips are great. I first seen them vacationing up in Canada. Along with ketchup flavored chips.

baked snap peas from trader joe's ( I think whole foods has them too). I drive 40 mins. to TJ's to get them, and don't really even care about my old favorites any more such as salt and vinegar.
