This morning some of my co-workers expected me to get to work by 8:00 AM, so I didn’t have time for a fair and balanced breakfast. That meant no cereal and certainly not anything more elaborate. I didn’t want to skip out on breakfast, because it’s one of the three most important meals of the day. Fortunately I found some raw cookie dough in the fridge. Of course there wasn’t time to cook it, but it turned out that this was some of that new “slow-bake” cookie dough. Now, by the name, you might think it would take longer to prepare, but the irony is that it’s much quicker. See, it bakes at 98.6 degrees. You don’t have to wait on the oven to preheat, because your stomach is already preheated to this exact temperature. So you just eat the raw cookie dough, and nature naturally takes care of it for you while you go on about your business. It’s quite convenient!
BTW, of course I had milk to go with it. You’ve got to have milk with chocolate chip cookies! It was 2 percent milk. (Yes, that’s because I’m overweight.) Hopefully these were some specially-formulated low-fat cookies. I didn’t have time to read the nutritional info on the package to verify this, though…

I too was in a rush this morning… so for breakfast I too had to forego the benefits of a nutritionally balanced meal. But rather than cookie dough I had a wedge of no-bake cheesecake. and since I didn’t have to wait for the oven OR my stomache to pre-heat (uhhh?) I finished it rather quickly 🙂 it was scrumcious! there was no nutritional info on the pie plate so i’m assuming it must have been fat free with like 0 calories & stuff. 🙂
Mango-Man, your “reasoning” reminds me of a roommate of years past. He tried to be all healthy in everything he ate, putting down my food because it wasn’t healthy enough. But if I offered him anything, then it was totally FREE. Not just free in cost, but free in fat grams and calories. It was funny. He’d scorn at our choice of ordering pizza, but if we offered him any, he’d eat all we offered him. Any free food didn’t count towards his diet. 🙂
