My Downfall is in the House

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Ok, confession time. I read so often about people who struggle with having certain snacks (ie chips, chocolate, etc) in their house. For many, it's better to just not have it at all than to keep staring at a package and having it torture you. I never felt that attracted to a food. Don't get me wrong, I eat things I shouldn't but a bag of chips can go stale in my house. I have three Hershey's bars in the fridge from the summer when we did s'mores that I have no idea what to do with. I could only sympathize with this struggle. UNTIL TODAY.

We found out that a bakery somewhat nearby is a branch of the local bakery we had close by growing up. They make these cookies. Oh these cookies! They are probably as long as your middle finger and twice as wide. Dipped one end in different colored white chocolate with sprinkles. As a kid, I loved these. As an adult, I found out I STILL love these. (Side note: my mom is in town and we went to this bakery together. She bought what seemed like one of everything.) I must have eaten 10 or more of these cookies. I have no idea even how to track it. It was crazy. I allowed myself two of them. Then, I justified eating another one. Then I think I had two more. After dinner, I felt like the Cookie Monster. Nom nom nom nom........

On the plus side, I feel sick from all that sugar. I don't even want to look at the rest of them. Another plus, the cinnamon rolls, cinnamon bread and coffee cakes don't interest me. I think I got it out of my system. Tomorrow is a new day.

    I would trade my right arm for a chocolate chip cookie after reading your blog. Ok, maybe my left arm since I'm a righty. Man - those sound good! Or maybe a cinnamon bun. I love cinnamon buns!!!! Fresh made cinnamon buns, heated up in the microwave - sinfully delicious!

Ok, I'm going to stop being a partner in crime and be supportive now, hehehe. Good for you for recognizing that it's a challenging food for you to walk away from! I know some bakeries make you buy things in packages - are you able to purchase just 1 cookie? I'm a fan of things in moderation - it's a lifestyle change not a "diet." One cookie every now and again isn't awful - if you can buy just 1 cookie at a time you won't have to worry about eating too many. Or maybe there is a healthy recipe that can be used for a homemade variation?

My body gets the same way with me when I eat too much of something not so great for me - I love that our bodies do that! Mine didn't use to, so I take it as a good and healthy sign that our bodies can recognize what's not good for us now.

    I guess we all have something that we have difficulty resisting. My danger foods are salt and vinegar chips, chocolate and gummy candy. I just can't have them in the house or I WILL eat them....all at once. Now you know where you are tempted and you can decide when to eat them and when to leave them in the bakery.

    I am this way with Lemon Filled anything (donuts, pie, bars) I love that oozy gooey lemon gel filling. It haunts and taunts me......I am fine with any sweet I can watch my kids eat pizza, chips, etc but somebody brings a box of donuts to work and there is a lemon one in there and IT IS ON.....let the torture begin!!
