The Best 15 Minutes of My Day (It’s Snack Time)

A few months ago I got some BAD news.

Rachael gave me her gluten allergy.*

For a cookie/cake/donut loving person like me, I took it pretty hard. I ate bacon for a week to soothe my sad soul. Then I had MORE than my fair share of lackluster gluten-free treats.

There was a treat-sized hole in my heart.

UNTIL NOW.

Let me introduce you to your new favorite food obsession.

Yes, I said “food obsession” —you know, the food items that you’re SO EXCITED about, that you plot and plan when you’ll enjoy them next.

A new, luscious French style yogurt that is deliciously thick and subtly sweet—the sort of spoonful that makes you look down, do a double take, and think…OH MY STARS, THIS IS GOOD.

And then take another bite to confirm that you weren’t, in fact, dreaming. AND THEN tell all your friends. Because something this good cannot be kept a secret!

Because you’re friends, they are probably exactly like you. Sitting through extracurricular activities and digging through their bag and eating kid snacks, or worse, leftover kid snacks. (Don’t tell me you haven’t been so hungry you’ve wolfed down stale animal crackers from a half-eaten bag in your purse. WE’VE ALL BEEN THERE.)

It’s time for something grown-up and indulgent. It’s time to take a few minutes of downtime for yourself. You’ll be AMAZED at how much 15 minutes can do for you.

Especially if you take that 15 minutes right before the school bus gets home, or perhaps after the kiddos are in bed. Or…my personal favorite, before they wake up in the morning.

Slow down. Have a delicious snack. Let your mind wander. Stare out the window at your favorite view. List three things you’re thankful for.

Oui by Yoplait comes in eight delicious flavors—strawberry, blueberry, black cherry, vanilla, coconut, lemon, peach, and plain.

My personal favorite combo is coconut with a bit of granola (GF of course.)

RUN, DO NOT WALK.

\I’m kidding. I know you can’t CATCH a gluten allergy.*
