It's not that she doesn't care for Jack - or that she doesn't love Jack. It's just that Jack needs Mood Food - something to hit the spot.
At times, such is dieting.
We suddenly receive a promotion at work along with a big pay raise, so we go out and celebrate at our favorite restaurant. And as we're stuffing our tummies, our forgotten diet is saying, "Oh no! I don't want another enchilada drowned in cheese sauce! It's not what I NEED right now!"
Just as Jenny misread Jack, we misread our diet.
It's not that we forget about our diet - how could we when it's on our minds 24-7? We know it's there alright, just as Jenny knew Jack was hacking in the heat. We've suddenly got the same scenario as Jenny.
We need Mood Food - something to hit the spot that will go hand in hand with our diet. Mood Food - not quite Comfort Food, not quite Diet Food - sorta right there in the middle but just healthy enough to satisfy both our Diet and our Mood.
Here are a few of our favorite Mood Foods.
Sexy Mood, Chocolate
Choose DARK chocolate which renders healthy heart benefits.
Passionate Mood, Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Again - go for the DARK chocolate for healthy heart benefits. The strawberries add another layer of health.
Exotic Mood, Coconut Nectar
Serve the following in a hulled-out coconut: 1/2 cup of skim milk blended with a bit of fresh pineapple & crushed ice.
Feeling Sassy, Kiwi & Mango
How sassy is that?
Bold Mood, Hot Wings!
Go for the meat around the drumette; try to avoid the skin as it contains the majority of calories.
Sad Mood, Chocolate Milk
Use skim milk & grab a Crazy Straw.
Feeling Sick, Chicken Soup
Mom was right! A bowl of hot chicken soup is just the cure when it comes to achy.
However, please make certain you aren't feeling ill due to a restricted diet plan. If that's the case - no amount of soup will provide a miraculous cure.
Happy Mood, Cookies
Opt for the smaller cookies as you can enjoy more cookies than if you go with a big one. You'll feel like you're getting more food, too.
Feeling Nervous, Pumpkin or Sunflower Seeds
Unhulled seeds will feed your nervous energy without blowing your diet plan.
Feeling Tired, Grapes or Bananas
Freeze grapes so as they don't touch. Slice bananas before freezing. These natural poppers are delicious, healthy pick-me-ups. The banana is also a great source for potassium which combats leg cramps.
Adventurous Mood, Hot Buttered Popcorn
Grab the low calorie/low fat brands OR use a hot air popper and spray with no calorie butter spray OR light margarine, melted.
Festive Mood, Cotton Candy
Sure, it's a mass of spun sugar, but it's lower in calories than one might think - ranging from 120-240 calories per fluffy stick.
Bored Mood, Taffy
Great Mood Food for unlocking boredom.
Angry Mood, Bread
Pound out your frustration on a loaf of bread - by making a loaf. When you get happy again, you'll end up with something productive.
Feeling Lonely, Yogurt & Whipped Topping
Grab a 110 calorie (or less) serving of yogurt and spoon in 6 Tablespoon of LIGHT topping. For less than 200 calories, you'll enjoy this Mood Food Friend.
Lazy Mood, Lolipop
For about 25-75 calories, it's a sweet treat that can be enjoyed one lick at a time.
