SGX Journal C4W1D5 (Not-so-Thin Mints)

Thoughts: Today my supervisor generously donated two boxes of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies to our room for general snacking.

Yes, I know that GS cookies are horribly overpriced and not even that tasty compared to home-made desserts, but there’s a lot of nostalgia tied up in my feelings toward Thin Mints. Those were my *favorite* GS cookies as a kid, and even now I have a mild hankering for a cookie or two.

Fortunately, I got a hold of the box and read the following nutrition (if you can call it that) stats:

1 serving = 4 cookies, 170 calories, 24 g carb, 2 g protein, 7 g fat (4 saturated, 1 trans)

I am so not having one of those. Bleah.

When I’m ignorant of the true nutrition stats of a food, I find it easier to rationalize a nibble or two. How bad can a cookie be, right? When the full, awful truth is printed there in black and white, though, no amount of self-delusion can justify the cheat on a non-free day, alas.
