Nope. No way does this make up for toasted almonds or potato chips!I munched a couple of celery stalks, in hopes that it would replace the roasted almonds I like to nosh on between meals. Nice try, but my stomach was growling again in no time. But by 5:30, I was really hungry, and the BP wasn’t going to be home until at least 7:00, I feared. It was time to dip into the strawberry stash – which was designated as dessert tonight. So much for willpower. As that old saying goes, “Life is short – eat dessert first!” Dinner was leftover pasta sauce with whole wheat spaghetti, perked up with some slow-roasted cherry tomatoes. Salad? Nope. Bread? Nope. Just pasta. GET INVOLVED! ? Take the Hunger Challenge yourself. Sign up here. ? Read blogs by people taking the Hunger Challenge. There’s a blogroll here. ? Follow the Hunger Challengers on Twitter.
