Farewell old favorites

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, March 07, 2013

This week I've discovered that my favorite stressed-out food - plain Lays potato chips - just don't taste good to me anymore. I noticed it with the first chip - it tasted like fat and chemicals. Of course I ate a few more (6 total) before I gave it up altogether and realized they'd left an unpleasant aftertaste. A handful of raisins pretty much overcame that.

That afternoon I grabbed one of the Girl Scout thin mints a customer had brought us - and it was worse than the potato chips! Ewww - I used to love these? Even raisins couldn't get rid of that aftertaste.

So, thanks to the Sparkpeople Cookbook and a diet consisting primarily of whole foods - potato chips and Girl Scout cookies are no longer "favorites". HOORAY! and THANK YOU, CHEF MEG AND SPARKPEOPLE!!!!

    Excellent, I have the same reactions with foods I think will be good.

    I used to think Breyers Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream was the most heavenly food on earth. Now it tastes cloyingly sweet and I have no desire to eat it.

  Good for your for ditching the chips. It is a hard thing to do - your body will love you for it!

    Potato chips are still one of my favorite foods and I sure do wish I could develop the realization that they really don't taste good after all. You give me hope that I can beat this devilish part of my food intake.

    I'm looking forward to a day like that. Lay's Stax are my necessary evil on salt-craving days.

    That's where I am trying to be again. Yesterday I got stressed out and ate about 3 or 4 servings of UTZ plain chips and a half a snickers. WTH?! But I do know that feeling of just not wanting that junk anymore. Keep it up Momma!
