I just wanted to say that pumpkin bread is one of my biggest weakness's besides chocolate.

I think I would pass on chocolate if pumpkin bread was there.


So I understand where you are coming from! So all very good ideas, esp the freezing it part.

If you are going to bake, freeze or give away half.

Plan ahead. My weekly meals are planned on Friday nights, Saturday morning is shopping for groceries, and Sunday afternoons are for food preparations for the coming workweek.

Fail to plan, plan to fail. Having healthy options at home, and not allowing yourself to have junk food in the house, makes it easier to eat healthier.

By the way, popcorn is a great snack, unless it has loads of butter on it. A slice of pumpkin bread is fine, just don't eat the whole loaf in one sitting (I used to do that!)

Best to you.

Put it behind you and move on.

You already have listed things that you need to do to plan for such events.

If the pumpkin bread still calls; slice and freeze. Then, if you really need a piece, and it fits within your daily menu - thaw one slice.

Spend some time making a large batch of something (chili, shepherd's pie, etc.) and freeze in portions - ready to go when you need them.

Made pumpkin bread today - a "low fat" version - this might have worked out, if all other structure had not fallen away! The most I can say is that I ate two fruits. But how very humbling to add into my food tracker: dinner - an apple, popcorn (at the circus), and two slices of pumpkin bread with butter (after the circus).

It's a lesson - I need more frozen food, or easily accessible protein. Popcorn as a dinner is not feeling too good! I'm hungry, but the only available food is that freaking pumpkin bread, and that's not what I need - what I need is some protein and some vegetables.

So I'm above my calorie total for the day, and struggling with whether to try to get some protein into me, or at least some vegetables, or just go to bed!
