Wine or Bread

Work, work, work!

Today has been quite the busy day at the office! I usually have a lot of work to do, but it typically involves a lot of writing, which I love, so it doesn’t feel so daunting. Today, however, I am doing a lot of number crunching because I am putting together a quarterly review for my department. Phew!

Needless to say my mind and belly were ready for a break around lunchtime.

I was pretty pumped for my lunch today.

Last night as we were making dinner, I cooked spaghetti squash to use in my mid-day meal.

Spaghetti Squash Bowl

To the big bowl ‘o’ squash, I added zucchini, portobello mushrooms, cauliflower, marinara sauce and ricotta cheese (Yes, I am obsessed).

Hump Day Lunch

I stirred everything up and wolfed this down like it was cool.

Wine Vs. Bread

Yesterday I read a little excerpt on that included diet dos and don’ts from the Countess LuAnn de Lesseps from the Real Housewives of New York (which I’ve never actually seen).

She offers this advice to party goers:

“If you eat the bread, skip the wine. If you drink the wine, skip the bread. It’s one or the other. I personally choose the wine.”

I choose to take the stance that you can enjoy both, but if I had to choose one – fresh, crusty bread or a glass of wine, I’d definitely pick the bread. I ❀ food (and carbs!).

However, if the bread was stale and nothin’ special, I’d go for a glass of Relax Riesling. Yum.

Now I ask you…

If you had to choose between wine or bread, which would you pick?

  3. Definitely wine. I would really like them both but my trainer says the same thing: one or the other. πŸ™‚ Tough love, huh? πŸ™‚

  4. Wine, for sure. I would much rather have a glass of wine over dessert even.

  5. I refuse to choose!!!! πŸ™‚

  6. Wow, I’m surprised so many people are choosing wine. I’d go with bread 100 percent. I don’t really like wine that much.

  7. Ohhh that’s a tough one! I would say go for each but it I had to choose……! πŸ™‚

  8. woahhh..tough chose. id have to say wine…no bread…no wine. haha πŸ˜‰ we’ll go with wine.

  9. Red wine for sure! They don’t normally serve GF bread at parties anyway πŸ™‚

  10. Delicious eats!!

  11. Easy…bread! πŸ™‚

  12. Wine, if I had to choose. But usually if I’m given the choice of both quality bread and quality wine, it’s a rare situation and I’m going to have both!

  13. I can’t pick!! I hate “diet rules” like this because I never want to follow them, haha. If both look good, I have both!

  14. Wine! I will always choice wine over any other treat πŸ™‚

  15. Yummy lunch!

    I wouldn’t choose either…is there a cheese plate available?

  16. i am with you, all about the bread!

  17. Jul, you know this is a no brainer for me…WINE!!!! And not just because I’m gluten-free and bread is my enemy, but because I’m a wine-o!

  18. Bread, without a second thought!

  19. Another wine-o here. Love my wine:) heehee

  20. Bread all the way! Alcohol kills your metabolism and makes you do crazy things πŸ˜€

  21. Definitely would choose the bread!! I like your answer about if it was stale, you’d choose a reisling!! Me too!! πŸ™‚

  22. Ill always have both, I mean thats why we hit the gym so hard right?

  23. I agree, if you want both, have a little of both…why does there have to be a choice?!

  24. Relax Reisling is the BOMB! It happens to be my personal fav as well. I’ll pass up bread anyday for a glass of this! =)

  25. I would choose the wine!! Even know I love bread too!

  26. I agree with the comment about refusing to choose. But most def. wine when it came down to the nitty gritty.

  27. The Wine! Usually when I visit restaurants that offer bread I’ll choose a carb based dish anyway. I’m not sure if it’s different in America but here in Australia it seems to be mostly Italian restaurants that offer a bread basket.
