The Call of the Pastry

Good Morning, Please eat me

You drag yourself into work after eating more than planned over the weekend. Monday is a new start and you promise yourself a healthy day of eating.

Moments after arriving you are barraged with mounds unhealthy eats. Muffins, bagels and pastries stare at you innocently. They want you and you want them. But not so fast!

What to Do

  1. Walk on by.
    Caution: Do not stop to smell or gaze lovingly at even one pastry crumb.
  2. Pour yourself a cup of hot tea and sip it slowly.
  3. Take a 10 minute walk around the building or up and down the stairs.
  4. Stop by the bathroom and assess your body.
  5. Remind yourself of your good heating promise.
  6. Return to your desk, avoiding the baked goods.
  7. Wait 20 minutes and pretend you ate a muffin, bagel or pastry.
  8. Know you did not eat even one and feel really good about yourself.
  9. Tell yourself “Good job!”

When Temptation Wins

If the baked goods win your Monday morning battle to eat healthy, remember that guilt gets you nowhere. Keep moving forward. Pour yourself another cup of tea. Relax and think of ten good things. Let the guilt go and think ahead and picture eating a healthier lunch.

When temptation seeps into your brain and muscles your good intentions, ask yourself if giving in aligns with how you want to feel at the end of the day. Then do the thing you promised yourself you would do.

Diana's Famous Semi-Round Banana Muffins

Semi-Round Banana Muffins

Ingredients
1 box banana muffin mix
1 very ripe banana
1 Granny Smith apple
1/3 cup walnuts
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon strawberry preserves

Directions
Mix muffins according to box. Blend in smashed banana, chopped apple, cinnamon, and preserves. Bake and eat hot with a cup of tea. Prepare muffin mix according to the box instructions. Blend in smashed banana, chopped apple, nuts, cinnamon, and preserves. Bake according to the box, and eat hot with a cup of tea.

Why Semi-Round?

The muffin mix comes in a box, which is not a Round shape. By adding Round walnuts (they live in a Round shell), Round bananas (slicing makes perfect circles), Round apples, and preserves from the sliced Round strawberry, the muffins become healthier with all the extra Round ingredients. For more on the science behind Round food, check out the Round Code section on Roundorama.

DR. OZ’S FORBIDDEN APPLE JUICE

ApplesA Glass of Apple Juice a Day Makes This Doc Say Go Away

Recently, Dr. Oz shared results of a new study he conducted in his own labs, making us all aware that a variety of apple juices on the market have more than the desired amount of arsenic. Many a website, blog and news related shows are now on the fear of apple juice bandwagon.

Just Eat It

Roundorama takes a different approach to this news, one more on the bright side. Why? Well, as the Round Lady has touted for eons, also known as many moons, eating the fruit is always better than drinking it.

The Core of Apple’s Arsenic

Worries about arsenic can be tossed out the window by avoiding the seeds! Chomp around the apple core by eating the actual fruit with its healthy fiber and added chewing time. Whole apples are ready to eat and a breeze to pack in a purse, pocket, backpack, briefcase or lunch bag. No container or sippy cup needed—nature designed the apple as a portable, eat with your hands, crunchy chomp on demand snack anyone can enjoy at any age..

Apples Past and Present

Dating back to 6500 B.C., these super healthy fruits sprouted as one of nature’s Roundest treats famous for changing the world. Apple-filled tales feature such historic figures as Adam and Eve, Isaac Newton, Johnny Appleseed and most recently with the revolutionary story that is Steve Jobs (who happened to grow up in apricot orchards, also a Round fruit). Apples are known to keep doctors away, made their way into American history with mom’s apple pie, and continue to be one of the healthiest Round fruits enjoyed by all ages, all over the world.

Apples Make Healthy Sense

Even Dr. Oz would agree that apples are antioxidant-filled, bone-protecting, asthma-reducing, cholesterol-lowering, cancer-thwarting, weight-loss-promoting, Alzheimer-preventing, delicious-tasting, wallet-friendly, ultra-crunchy, low-calorie, tree-grown, variety-filled, Super Round fruits meant to be consumed often.
