My current healthy obsession is greens.  I have been buying them for the past few months since I read an article in the NY Times about superfoods.  I usually make them once a week and they usually are very good.  Today for lunch I'm having leftover swiss chard and kidney beans, yum!

My unhealthy obsession right now is probably those Tostitos with a hint of lime.  I bought a bag and ate them in like 2 days.  So I'm forbidding myself from buying them any more.  :-\\\\

Hmm, I might ask you how you prepare the greens, they sound really good!

Ahh, I haven't received mine yet!!  When I do, they will replace any and all other obsessions.

Please!!!  Stop saying Girl Scout Cookies people!!!  I'm pretending they don't exist! ;)

I've heard they have low-fat GSC ice cream.  Not sure the brand, but can't be hard to find in the bigger supermarkets in the US.

Kind of new, as of the past few years. They're huge shortbreads with chocolate bottoms, and "Thank You" written across them in various languages. Taste like chocolate-covered graham crackers.

I just polished off the last of the Thin Mints.  [smiley=bigcry.gif]
