The Peanut Butter Cookie – A Great Weakness of Mine

22 Jan

The Peanut Butter Cookie

Okay, I failed my own test.  I had not only one, but two peanut butter cookies at a church function.  After doing some research, I learned that these were peanut butter cookies from Sam’s Club called Member’s Mark Peanut Butter Cookies.  Here’s the nutritional information found at http://www.myfitnesspal.com/food/calories/members-mark-sams-club-peanut-butter-cookie-7722389

Calories 220

Sodium 150 mg

Total Fat 12 g

Saturated 4 g

I think knowing this will at least help me not eat “two” of them next time.  I understand having a treat, but I also believe that this can be a sliding slope if I don’t watch it.

I hope that you’ve found this information helpful.  If you have a weakness like I do for Peanut Butter Cookies, Coca-Cola, or a number of other items, educate yourselves on the nutritional information.

Here’s What I Had To Eat Today:

1 Special K Protein Meal Bar

½ Serving of Jambalaya

1 Serving of Salad

1 small dinner roll

2 peanut butter cookies

2 slices of turkey pepperoni pizza with onion and red and green pepper on whole wheat crust

1 serving of fat free chocolate pudding

80 oz of water

The Return of the Peanut Butter Cookie

21 Aug

Last week, I had an unfortunate encounter with a large peanut butter cookie.  I was at a church event and it was just sitting there, calling my name, taunting me, daring me, calling me names, and insulting my parents.  So, I decided to destroy it completely by eating it.  I silenced it forever.  I thought it was an overwhelming triumph for me, but it wasn’t because I fell to temptation when I wasn’t ready to.  I know it’s okay for me to eat a peanut butter cookie every so often, but I also know that I want to be in charge of when I do.  I certainly don’t want the cookie to be in charge.

So, this weekend, one week later, I was involved with helping setout almost 1600 cookies of the same size and variety to the people.  We set them out by the tray.  Here is a picture of one of the half tables with three of the trays:

I thought one cookie was enough temptation.  When you uncover a tray of cookies, approximately 20% of them being peanut butter cookies, it’s like an entire choir of voices attack you when the aroma hits your nostrils.  The smell was so good that I could taste the cookies.  The cookies, in unison, sang together, “We are the best tasting cookies!  You should eat us now!”

“No!” I cried as I slammed the top back on the cookie tray, crushing one of the cookies in the process.

As I fled from the scene of the crime, I swear I heard the crushed cookie cry out, “You’ll be sorry, man.  My brothers will make you pay!”

Later, after the services were over, I made my way to the cookie trays hoping that there was at least one peanut butter cookie left.  There was not, not even one crumb.

I’m glad I missed out on the peanut butter cookies today.  I’m not proud of everything I ate today, but I’m glad that at least one item did not make the list.

Here’s what I’ve had to eat today:

1 Snackwell’s Protein Breakfast Bar

1 medium salad with lettuce, broccoli, cucumbers, fat free dressing, and McCormick’s salad toppers (dried vegetables)

1 serving of roasted eggplant

2 servings of broccoli chicken wrap

6 oz strawberry banana smoothie

1 serving of Ranch flavored rice cakes

2 pieces of supreme pizza

2 servings of fat free brownies (No Pudge) with ½ serving of lowfat ice cream (Skinny Cow)

77 oz of water

Supplements I’ve taken today

1 fish oil pill

1 multivitamin

Exercise

45 minute walk with Kathy on the Moonwalk by the French Quarter
