I tried these too - and I thought they were really strange.

When Five Meats Are Not Enough

It would be nice to see a 6 veggie pizza - they could broaden their market appeal.

Enough with the Workplace Candy!

mountaincachers -
I agree that there is a certain degree of personal responsibility. just as an alcoholic when he hears a clink of ice cubes makes a choice not to drink. but wouldn't you want to support someone struggling with addiction by not drinking in front of him? - of course as he gets a handle on it -things change and it becomes easier.
My point is -if someone is having trouble walking by the donuts to get to his non-fat yogurt - why don't we give him a break? Why not make it easier for that person to make a healthy choice?

Enough with the Workplace Candy!

Prav:
There have been studies in rats - one as recently published in a Journal of Neurology that support the idea that junk food lights up the same area of the brain as heroin. Would you bring heroin to share at work? It is time to realize that obesity is an epidemic brought on by addictive substances. Dissordered eating - what ever that means - can be a result of an addiction.
There have been calls for junk food to be treated as a controlled substance because is is harmful to so many people who cannot control their habit - or in my view - their addiction.

I'm always looking for snack ideas - and also I'm wondering if Chow readers care about calories.

What if it was alcohol that people bought in? Something that people can get addicted to and have a tough time avoiding. Junk food (it has been shown) can be addictive. If there are people who are trying to lose weight and eat healthier at the workplace - why not just avoid bringing in the stuff to support them. What does it matter?

Another Excuse to Eat Chocolate

And it's good for you! Dark chocolate (in small amounts) is a healthy food - especially this artisan stuff which is less processed than Hershey's.
