Evening!

I am so full right now.  If I was hungry earlier, then I certainly emerged triumphant, since I’m almost painfully full now.

Despite failing at my baking endeavors, it didn’t keep me from picking at my failed pastry.  I learned that if you bake date puree, it comes out like a fruit roll up.  I ate tons of that, which was encased in a high-fat pastry dough.

So, I was full, but lunch was so good I had it again.

So, so, so very yummy!

I discovered today that my beloved Frank’s Red Hot is mislabeled.

I emailed them about it, and hopefully hear back from them soon, but it states that a tablespoon of their hot sauce has 200 mg of sodium.

However, a closer look shows that their serving size is a misprint, and it’s actually 200 mg of sodium per teaspoon.

Um, wrong?

I seriously used about two tablespoons on my dinner tonight.  That’s 1200 mg of sodium right there.  Plus my peas have another 200 mg, and another 3-4 servings of hummus is 500-550 mg.

And I had it for lunch.  And a surprisingly salty breakfast, with the cereal and all.

I had the worst stomach pain all night yesterday and today — I’m not going to go into detail, but I got sick several times last night and today.  The only new thing I added was the hot sauce.

I imagine I’m going to be feeling awful all tonight and hopefully all this salt doesn’t ruin my birthday. =/

It’s my fault for not taking a closer look at the label, though.  My fail.

Have you ever eaten something only to discover it was not as healthy as you thought? Not that hot sauce is healthy, but geez — a teaspoon of salt’s worth added to my dinner?  Epic fail.

I realize I haven’t had any real fruit today, other than a banana and some dates.  Even though I’m full, something light like watermelon or an apple sounds good right about now.

Thanks for reading!
