Arteries closing: Joan Onffroy (left), and Richard Frase, both of Minneapolis, have no clue how much saturated fat is about to hit them.

Day 2: Snack

With little if any fruit around, I grab the next best thing: chocolate-covered frozen Key lime pie.
For once it's chocolate -- not greasy batter -- that's holding everything together.
It's an odd mix, though. I never thought citrus and chocolate would go well together.
But fellow muncher Joan Onffrox, 64, of Minneapolis, says it's a winner. It would be too sour without the chocolate and too sweet without the lime.

Seems right. Seems light. Then I look at the wrapper.
More than 300 calories in a little slice. More than half the fat is saturated.
I throw the wrapper away.
