Panera, Starbucks and Body Clutter

Mom treated Clara and me to Panera Bread for lunch the other day. I totally avoid this restaurant because the title contains the word “bread.” So, I was pleasantly surprised to find an Asian Sesame Chicken Salad on the menu that, holding the fried wonton strips and using only half of the dressing, worked splendidly with the South Beach Diet guidelines.

Later that afternoon, she treated us to Starbucks. I can’t say that I totally avoid Starbucks, but I usually order something decaf, non-fat, no sugar. This time, the herbal teas caught my eye so I tried a caffeine-free “autumn” tea blend that was delicious.

Thanks, Mom, for broadening my horizons, but not my hips.
