the dubious merits of a treat

Saturday, February 01, 2014

This afternoon - after the relief of being paid! I sat down and made a menu plan for the next 5 days, and a shopping list. Then I went into town and got half of the stuff (need to do a second trip - I'm on foot and local). I bought myself a 'treat' of a bag of pick-and-mix sweeties.

I made a mug of tea, and sat and munched my way through them (all tracked, of course!)
then I felt, sort of, 'wish I hadn't done that' - they weren't really that much of a treat.

I'm planning to make some sugar-free banana chai muffins later today - if I'd waited, I could have eaten 3 and a half muffins for the same calories - and they'd have felt like more than enough!

oh well, you live and learn!

    I don't have to worry anymore about sweet treats; in our village there's a new sweet shop and the selection of sugar-free stuff is amazing. Best of all are the various toffees, chocolate éclairs being my favourite. I don't get a reaction from sweeteners, but, be careful, some people do.

look out for sugar-free foods in your local supermarket. I found liquid drinking chocolate (in the UK) that looks and tastes like Nutella and can be used as a spread or whatever; only 13 cals per tsp. It's great treat in lieu of chocolate bars.
