I know the obvious: not all yogurts are the same. And having RNY means I need to pick out the kind that is right for me.
While I've settled on Dannon Lite & Fit Greek yogurt as my 'at home' fave, I fell into a hole of my own digging at a frozen yogurt place.
Granted, all my warning signs were going on: I was hot, tired, hungry, it was past dinner hour in the evening and we were in a hurry. DD and DH didn't feel like eating 'real' dinner out- only wanted frozen yogurt. Now I mostly avoid these places cuz they don't have choices I can & want to live with. Initially I told them I would meet them at home and they put up such a fuss about us doing a family thing together, that I went along. I promised myself that I wouldn't have anything until I got home. Blah, Blah, Blah....
The frozen yogurt store was heavenly cool! And smelled YUMMY! The colors of delicious dry toppings in the cannisters and syrupy, candies & fruits in the cold case made even my eyes drool
And they have these **tiny** taster cups. I decided I could have one. So I cruised the machines to check out the available flavors. A bunch of 'Regular' and 'No Fat' selections. Hmmm move along girl.
Then the "No Sugar Added" strawberry. Ok I would now use my taster cup to try **ONE** of the 'forbidden' flavors and get maybe 1/2 cup (as measured by my eye) of the strawberry.
Well, ONE taster cup of course led to TWO, THREE and FOUR. They're soooooo small & won't do any harm.... While I don't think (!) my strawberry was a FULL cup, it was pretty darn close. And of course I had to add a bit of chocolate and cheesecake flavored yogurts to round it out.
Of course my mouth LOVED it!!!
But my tummy said NO WAY!!!!
Got home at 8:30 and had to go to bed with a HUGE tummy ache!!!
1) Stick to my resolve to avoid places I know are tempting and offer my trigger foods.
2) Plan ahead with a snack of my own or figure out a plan that works for everyone (I could have stopped at home or a store and got my own Dannon Lite N Fit Greek and met them a the yogurt place. (They have outside seating too so I wouldn't be 'hassled' for bringing my own)
