Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful...WINNER ANNOUNCED

It's been too cold and snowy to do much of anything the past couple of days. Yesterday shops all up and down Main Street closed around 3 so that employees could make it home safely. The normal 20 minute trip into work took me 45 minutes this morning and double that this evening.

Needless to say, I haven't made it out to the grocery store in a while and so I've been eating a whole bunch of spaghetti. Not too much fun recipe-wise.

To supplement my carb-fest and make me feel ever-so-slightly healthier, I've been eating clementines like they're going out of style. They're the perfect snack, because they come in their own packaging and don't squish as easily as bananas. (Although trust me when I say you don't want to forget there's one in your jacket pocket until after you've sat upon said jacket...)

Of course everyone knows that clementines are as healthy as they are tasty, but I was surprised to find out just how good they are. Did you know that 2 whole clementines have fewer calories than 1 cup of pineapple, and less sugar and more than twice as much potassium. They're also fat free, which means you can snack with a clear conscience. Of course dipping them in melted chocolate makes absolutely no difference.*

How would you like to win a box of clementines? Just leave a comment below telling me what your favorite snack is, and I'll pick a random winner on Friday, December 20.

  1. Clementines are amazing, and chocolate dipped makes them fat free, right?

  2. What a fun giveaway! My favorite snack is popcorn or cupcakes. :)

  3. Hello, it is a snowy day here, like a snow globe! I've been raiding the back of the cabinets, too, rather than go out in the recent single digit temps. My favorite snack is raw cashews! I would love clementines! How amazing! I'd like to also make candied peel with them, too. (you can dip the candied peel in bittersweet chocolate and give them for gifts)

  4. I like pretty much any fruits, although we don't have clementines very often.

  5. My favorite snack is veggies and hummus, but my three children could eat clementines all day long!
