  1. where do you find all these? sheesh. (a good sheesh, i can never find this many race options!)

    i am the same way! i have to force myself to eat the produce first sometimes. i just did NOT do this with a bag of salad and i went to make my lunch for today and it was all soggy and mushy. ugh. i hate wasting food. but i do have to overcome my laziness and eat the fruits/veggies instead of buying the shelf-life food!
