Soup & Frozen Bananas

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Soup and frozen bananas are two diet foods that don't make me feel like i'm dieting, and I love them for it.

It's been a hard weekend body-wise; a family vacation brought me face-to-face with all of the guilt issues I was raised with, and yet there was delicious food, and I ate it. Not a crazy amount, but definitely more than I have been. Last night I felt bloated and crampy and gross from all that dairy and not enough hydration. Today I'm back on track, even with those awesome chocolate-chip yogurt pancakes I made for breakfast. (Surprisingly? Not a lot of sugar!) I had a basically nonfat lunch to make up for that.

Easter candy is also a challenge right now. I want to get it out of the house and yet I don't! Everything is small, like the mini-Peppermint Patty I had with lunch. Even so, it's sugar and fat I don't need. I'm not sure what I'll ultimately do. I have other people in my family, so just throwing out everything that's bad for me is never really an option.

I'm going to do my best to work out for a while today, even though I've got a ton of work to do.

    Hi Satchmo! Thanks for the support. I'm actually blending the bananas in a food processor so they have the texture of ice cream -- I HIGHLY recommend it! There's a recipe with instructions here:

    Hi Cactustree

    I'm so curious about the frozen bananas, I've never heard of freezing them. Do you eat them like popsicles?

    I understand what you mean about family/holiday = dessert, my mom, bless her, wants to be very supportive of me in tackling my newly diagnosed diabetes but freely admits she needs to be educated about what it entails - whilst offering me her delicious home-baked scones :-0

    I tried a trick though, she was delighted to load me up with frozen cakes and cheesecakes to sell at my workplace to raise money for World Vision and our collective bake sale raised £92.00 which is around $140

    It's a little easier for me, because I take a whole trunk full of groceries to mom, as she's 83 and can't carry much. It means I take loads of fruit and veg, and even took a casserole for the first meal. Then I'll make a low fat version of a familiar meal for us for the 2nd night. Mom lives 180 miles away, and I visit about every 5 weeks or less if I can.

    Your are right about fatty foods and reflux, they do go hand in hand. I hope you feel better now that you are back on your own eating plan.

    Hugs, Satchmo x
