Funnoodles aka Fanoodles.

So when Rita and I are feeling all weak and pathetic and energy-less, we call it feeling like a fanoodle or funnoodle or sometimes we say fanoodily.

As it turns out, I may have solved the problem of the fanoodles/funnoodles. Protein.

Rita, next time you are feeling fanoodily, try a Larabar. I recommend the Key Lime or Lemon Pie kind. Or maybe the chocolate peanut butter. Or a Pure Organics bar in Apple. Not entirely untasty and an instant cure.

My friend Keva has been giving me the "your diet needs more protein" speech for months now and I didn't believe her but I obeyed her to SHUT HER UP ALREADY. As it turns out, she was right. I have started adding lean protein into my diet at each meal and it has made a world of difference.

Shelley, if you are reading this, I have already told Keva she was right and we don't want her turning into a smug little monster so don't tell her I said she was right on my blog. Much appreciated!

Rita, I will not give you any "your diet needs......" lectures because I know they can be annoying. But you might keep a bar in your purse just in case.
