You'd think I was pretty smart, right? (Don't answer that.) I'm a real idiot sometimes. I had a major "duh" moment today.

I'm really good about not drinking with my meals. I can eat some seriously spicy food without a drink and it doesn't bother me.

Today I had my usual Monday lunch - a Moe's burrito bowl - chicken or steak, black beans, a little guacamole, lettuce, onions, tomatillo salsa, and lots of chopped fresh jalapenos. I skip the tortilla and rice. Yum. As I often do after this lunch, I'll have a small Tasti-D-Lite, which is like a lowfat, low sugar ice cream like substance. 70 calories for a small and very, as the name implies, tasty.

I ordered my little cup of Tasti and got a phone call before I was able to finish it. Guess what it turned into as it sat?

Liquid. Basically a frozen beverage that gets unfrozen as soon as I put it in my mouth.


That stops now. I didn't even think of that until now.

Isn't it funny how we don't think of ice creams as a liquid? I guess it is subconsious thoughts trying to pull a fast one on us :o)

I drink water usually at the end of my meal to kind of "cleanse" the mouth. Shhhh....don't tell anyone, OK? Our little secret.
