in thread Free food I want to see in my company's kitchen

This comment (and the responses to it) reminded me of a passage in one of my favorite books, The Phoenix Guards, by Steven Brust:

"The days became weeks, as they will when allowed to heap themselves upon one another unattended, and these weeks likewise turned themselves into months of seventeen days with no regard to the hours and minutes they used up in doing so."

I discovered that months also, when heaping unattended, turn themselves into years with little or no regard to the days and weeks they use up in doing so. I used to drink two Mountain Dews each morning and thought nothing of devouring half a box of Little Debbie snack cakes (especially those Nutty Bars or Swiss Cake Rolls). But as I age I'm finding that some of my poor health choices are starting to catch up with me.

It is hard to believe, but we will not be young forever, even if the definition of 'young' keeps moving. Thanks for the snack tip ... I assume you mix the applesauce and powder? I'll check into it.

    Yeah, the junk food catches up with you eventually, about the mid-50's with me. Judging by how many hospital bills are caused by it, it is about as bad as smoking cigarettes. With Health Care costs becoming the number 1 factor in having employees, it would seem that companies would be screening people according to their dietary habits.

    I mix it like you say. Somtimes I dilute it with water, so its like a thick slurry and drink it like a shake.

    Since you are in the market for ideas, another neat one I discovered, is to mix coffee and those "meals in a can" they market to dieters and elderly people. It makes a high protein( a tasty) cafe-au-lait sort of drink. Actually I came upon the soy powder and applesauce as a way of getting the "canned meals" protein a bit cheaper. Most of those canned meals are soy-protein-isolate, vitamins, and some flavor. The soy-protein-isolate can be bought in quantity very cheap on the net.
