Year ago I came across "Miss Meringue" cookies. At the time you could only get them on line. Now I find them in some stores. These were like an answer to a prayer. I bought the minis and you could have 12 of these sweet treats for 120 calories with no fat. I was in one of my yo-yo diet phases so whenever I "needed" a sweet to eat I would have some of these (sometimes all 12).
I still keep them in my cupboard mostly because I really like them.
So today I was preparing lunch and decided to put two on my plate, like a mini dessert:) While I was getting ready to sit down and eat my lunch I popped one of the meringues in my mouth (they are just a little bigger than a Hershey kiss).
I could not believe that I actually found this little morsel to be too sweet to enjoy :(
Working on eating healthier has done a lot of things for me physically and mentally over the past three years, but I never, let me repeat never thought my sweet tooth could be tamed. I am a foodaholic, not just a sweet eater and on this journey I have made some changes, but have never eliminated any foods....just portion control and tracking. So even though I enjoy my dark chocolate (which is the only chocolate I will eat now, unlike before anything chocolate would be eaten), my sweet tooth is getting sophisticated.....or picky. I am pleased to say the least.
So I guess if you are struggling with certain foods, but limit them (and of course track them) you too may get a picky sweet tooth.
Thanks for stopping by. Make healthy choices and enjoy your journey. HUGS to all.
