It's that time of year when I have to avoid grocery stores, not only to avoid Girl Scouts and their delicious cookies (that I could eat by the box), but also because these lovely treats are now back on shelves....
I ate Peeps yesterday. They were tasty. I have no idea how many calories are in them, and, truthfully, I don't care. I pretend they are calorie-free. I know lots of people HATE Peeps, but I love them. They are sugary and delicious. Actually, I PR'd (set a personal record) of 31 minutes at a marathon when I ate Peeps as part of my nutrition. Seriously (you can read about it here). (For non-runners taking off 31 minutes from one marathon to the next is a LOT.) Was it the Peeps? I'm not saying it was, but...***
Also, I have a weird thing with Peeps (besides that I like them), I only like the yellow chicks. No others, not yellow bunnies, not purple chicks, not any other color combo. Also, I won't eat the other holiday version of Peeps - like Valentine Peeps or Christmas Peeps. Not having any of it. It must be yellow chicks.
***Actually, it was probably because I was better trained, better prepared, and I ran the first one SUPER slow (nowhere to go but faster) and I sprained my ankle in the second one. So, those are factors too. But, I'm thinking the Peeps played a big part. Mmmm.... sugary deliciousness..... Now to avoid them at all costs. (Looks like I'll be doing most of my shopping at Trader Joe's, a Peep-free zone.)
