How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat?
If you do eat your meat first, Google might give you a green light.
Apparently Google has begun giving their food a rating system. (You know, the food that they supply their employees for FREE… no, I’m not jealous…)
- Green = eat anytime
- Yellow = eat occasionally
- Red = splurge rarely
What’s next? The Google Food Pyramid?
It is an interesting concept. I wonder if it has the desired effect? Would color–coded foods make you think twice?
Apparently vending machines (the only items that aren’t free to Google employees) are priced according to nutritional value.
“Quaker Chewy Bars are 15 cents each, Famous Amos cookies re 55 cents, and an enormous Ghirardelli chocolate bar
Not that Quaker Chewy Bars are the pictue of health… but there are worse out there.

If you are ME and you want pudding before you eat your meat you simply make it for breakfast. Breakfast makes sweets acceptable – duh.
When searching for a sweet yet healthy source of protein for breakfast (read: too busy to go buy eggs or Greek yogurt), look no further then your trusty protein powder/drink supply.
Can’t decide between chocolate and vanilla? Use both!
Want to cinnamon? Dump it in!
How about some chia seeds for extra post-run hydration? Done.
Want a little crunch with it? Those raw Banana Nut Bars I made Friday are even better after sitting a couple of days.
Note: the banana granola and the banana in the pudding were a perfect pair!
You’ve just witnessed the thought process that lead to the birth of Chocolate Breakfast Pudding.
Chocolate Breakfast Pudding
- 1/3 dark chocolate EAS (or any chocolate milk alternative)
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 banana, mashed
- 1/2 T chia seeds
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Mix it all together and refrigerate overnight (or at least 2-3 hours for the chia to become “pudding”). Stir and devour!
I would love healthier (and free!) options at my office’s lunch spot!
How would you feel if your employer implemented a similar system?
Does your opinion change if they are supplying the food to employees for free?
