      Insanely helpful. The mug cookie has been my go-to for a while now, but I do it an even lazier way — after I make a batch of cookies, I scoop out half of the uncooked cookie dough into individual balls and stick them in the freezer. Whenever I want a cookie, I just pop one in a mug and microwave it for 30 seconds. It’s so good but I end up only eating cookies for weeks so I try not to do it too often.

        If I didn’t have a microwave I probably would never eat.

        Well, I would, but I would eat M&Ms.

      I’ve tried that cherry tomato thing before and can NOT do it!
      As for avocado pits, I seriously just sink my teeth into them, rip them out, and drop them directly into the trash.
      I’m not paleo, but I cook like a damn caveman.
