It’s two days past Christmas and I’ve JUST gotten over my turkey coma. Yes, we decided that you can’t get enough turkey around here and roasted a second bird for our holiday feast. On top of that, both me AND my mom decided to bake pies and the boys made more cookies than you can shake a stick at.
It’s time for the post-holiday diet.
Not that I’m really found of diets. Diets are hard. I like to think of it as eating “sensible.”
What’s sensible? Eating more veggies. Drinking more water. Having a little less cheese and maybe avoiding those cookies…for a while. Add in some more exercise and before you know it, you’re feeling fit and fabulous.
Psst: This post is sponsored by Goodcents, but all the opinions are my own.
Trying to keep meals sensible can be tough on a busy mom, what with all the errands to run, after school practices and meetings you have to attend. But instead of dashing through a greasy burger drive through when you have no time to cook, how about another option? A more sensible option. Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs has introduced a new line of Sensible Sands: delicious sandwiches that clock in under 500 calories each. They’re all prepared fresh just for you, on healthy spouted whole grain buns.
I stopped by the Goodcents off Dougherty Ferry Road (just down from the Museum of Transportation) on my way home from some after Christmas bargain hunting. The 26th is also known as “Mom’s Day Off” and to honor this unofficial holiday, I picked up subs for lunch. It was the sensible thing to do, after all.
I tried out the Horseradish Beef Sensible Sand and it’s pretty dang good. Fresh roast beef, with my choice of cheese (I went for cheddar), a little lettuce and onion…mmmmmm. Next time I think I’ll go for the Skinny Italian–turkey and salami with tomatoes, giardiniera and lettuce. There’s six sandwiches in all: Skinny Italian, Spicy Ham, Horseradish Beef, Turkey & Cranberry, Turkey Garden Club and Chicago Beef.
Of course I could have made that lunch even healthier with a side of apple slices instead of chips…but hey, they’re baked. Baby steps people, baby steps.
Now check out what Goodcents is offering for their kid meals!
Is this not the cutest sandwich ever?
It’s a 4 inch “white bread” bun in rainbow colors. You can get it with Turkey & Cheese, Ham & Cheese or Peanut Butter & Jelly. The meals are served with a choice of apple slices, cookie, or chips and a kid’s drink including milk, juice or a small fountain drink.
I’m really liking Goodcent’s kid’s meal. These guys made the FOOD fun, rather than just cutting down the size of an adult menu item and throwing in a silly toy. Mitch though it was pretty awesome too. (And we have quite enough junky toys, thankyouverymuch.)
