Happy Birthday to ME!

Lucky me. Dunkin' Donuts sent me 4 gift cards to try out some of their new "healthier choice" menu items.

Were they reading my mind? I have been trying to watch what I eat AND so is my teacher, Dan I. and a few of my classmates. So I took one card and gave the other three away at school. (You know how tough it is to get by on a teacher's salary or to be a student--right?) Well giving away the cards made me pretty popular.

Mr. I. is watching his weight and he tried the egg white veggie flatbread. He loved it. And at 290 calories! He was thrilled. (I am working really hard to be teacher's pet and this definitely helped!)

So today is my birthday and I finally decided to reward myself--to take a break and smell the coffee--and I headed over to Dunkin' Donuts. I got a low fat Cranberry Orange Muffin. It has 390 calories (100 more than the flatbread) and 3g of fat. It was so good! Honestly, it was better than any birthday cupcake I could have treated myself to.

Thank you Dunkin' Donuts for helping me start my day off right. I ate something delicious and I don't feel guilty! HOORAY!
