I blame the biscuits
I can't eat my five a day, because those darn biscuits keep getting in the way.
I've figured it out: the reason I'm not eating my five-a-day is because I keep being distracted by the box of Maple Cream Cookies sitting in my cupboard. Except that they managed to move to my desk.
For now, this has become my new reason for omitting those carrots, apples and other brain-enhancing foods, from my daily diet. Don't get me wrong - I always manage a few fruit & veg, but never, ever five. These biscuits also must be eaten. Not so much because they are sugary and good, but because, as their name might suggest, they are from Canada. It would be a terrible waste, if after racking up a good few airmiles, the Maple Cream Cookies actually never got to be savoured. Although I know you wouldn't want me to, I would blame myself. So instead, I have been dutifully making the most of these biscuits, which come cutely shaped as maple leaves, sandwiched together with a slathering of maple cream.
They are sweet, and most people managed just one when I offered them around on opening. I think my body may be gearing up for a dose of diabetes, as I find it incredibly easy to eat five in one sitting. And now I'm sitting on my own. Did I mention the box had moved to my desk...?
