Aww Nuts

Sunday, February 09, 2014

Found this adorable little video on YouTube about
a Bernase Mountain dog and a squirrel that was raised with him.
I'm sure the dog is thinking:
"I've definitely got to cut back on the biscuits".
See what you think

I love watching the interactions between pets of different species.
Wish some humans could learn to get along.
Sometimes I feel like even 'FAT' and 'SLIM' are prey and predator.
{ I sound a little down today or what?...}

Made the mistake of buying a loaf of whole wheat bread the other day...
and it's almost gone now. Made myself one last grilled cheddar cheese sandwich.
I cannot do BREAD. It's a trigger for me...big time.
I have zero resistance.

Enjoy your evening.

    Loved the video. Don't know if I'd want a squirrel in the house though. They can do a lot of damage.

Bread is a trigger for me, too. I've found that I can have Ezekiel bread and Thomas' Light Whole Grain English Muffins and be okay. I eat one serving and don't feel the need for more. However, I stupidly bought a box of Special K cereal the other day. I can't have cereal in the house. I just can't.

My daughter-in-law pointed out that a lot of that stuff has maltodextrine in it, which they say can increase appetite. Yikes! She said it was in her vitamins, so she switched brands. Since maltodextrine is processed with bleach, I figure it's not a good thing to have anyway. Special K cereal, at least the one that I had didn't have that in it. I just really like cereal. So I have no good excuses. Oh, well.

    Don't you wish you could just buy 2 or 4 slices of bread? Just have one sandwich or 2, and be done with it? Although I am pretty good with store bread. But restaurant bread or bakery bread.... no control. zero zip nada. Hmm.. that list of things I can't control gets longer.... ice cream, chocolate, good bread, how come it's not green beans or kale or something?????

    Definitely a cute video. I buy a loaf of bread and I usually end of throwing 1/2 of it out. I wish they made smaller loafs

    Ezekiel bread has less carbs and is denser, but it is a good substitute for regular bread. It just takes a little getting used to.

    I agree Sheryl. I like to see different species of animals interacting and getting along too! Amazing how the animal kingdom is so much smarter than man in this scenario!

I can't take the gluten in the bread so I stay away from it almost totally.

    Very cute. Reminds me of the grey baby squirrel that we raised when I was a kid. When he was full-grown, we started letting him out, but he always came home. Until one day, I saw him on the fence with another squirrel, they took off and we never saw him again - I think the other one may have been a female LOL!

    Oh, Sheryl, I'm the same with bread. I feel like a different person (better) when I don't eat it, but I just can't stay away. Toast in the morning is a must.

    There is a bakery in the city we go to once in a while that makes sourdough flaxseed buns that are to die for. I bought 3 dozen and gradually ate the works. I think DH might have gotten 6.

    Bread and pasta got me to where I was. I do keep bread in the freezer and it helps some - if I don't see it all the time I might go an hour or two without eating some!

    O lord.
Bread is my downfall.
I *rarely* succumb to a loaf of Pepperidge Farm Very Thin White, which I portion out and FREEZE in 4-slice bags. Even so... I'm ashamed to admit if I know it's in there, I've been "desperate" enough to yank it out and even eat it frozen. I'm a horrific addict. That bread is at least pretty "inexpensive", nutritionally. But it's still bread. I'm craving for days afterwards. Serves me right.

And oh...
just the thought of a nice crispy grilled sandwich loaded with melty cheese...

There I go

    Lol, me too. I don't think I've ever met a type of bread I didn't like. emoticon I do best when I limit my intake to only diet bread, once a day. But that's a goal...not a reality. lol

    Well at least you know what to do now with the bread issue. I don't eat it either.

HUGS and hope it's a good week for you.

    Now you have gone and done it!! My hubby saw this and wants a Wally now and as you know we just busted our butts removing a wild Wally from the dining room. Of course we would also have to have a Bernase Mountain dog to hide nuts in because I'm not going to be digging nuts out of my blubber layers.

I have the same problem with pretzel bread. If I'm around it, I eat it, I'm sick.

    I have a bad habit of buying a loaf of bread or package of rolls , eatng one slice (or roll) and letting the rest go stale or moldy. Or, I'll do like I did this week - bought a Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Roll loaf, and ate it in 3 days (good thing it was small). Now pizza ... I don't usually get it for home, but have to watch out when someone gets it for work ...

    Yes, I love bread too...sigh. I have decided to only eat goodies made from scratch. That has been working so far.

Grill cheese is a wonderful thing though.

Thanks for my goodie! emoticon

PS the video is beyond cute!!

    Thanks for sharing the video. That was one cute squirrel! About the bread - that IS a hard thing to let go of, isn't it? Try just cutting down to begin with. Decide you're only going to allow yourself 2 or 3 slices a day and plan how you will eat them ahead of time. Then next week cut down by one slice. When you get to one slice a day for a week, then you can go some days without any. Have faith in yourself! Even triggers can be conquered!

emoticon Wish we had an emoticon that looked like a knight on his charger with his sword raised! Would go perfect with the conqueror thing, wouldn't it?

    I hope you can find ways to change your beliefs about the bread and find other ways to meet your needs. I'm in the middle of listening to Dr. Candice Pert's audio book Your Body is Your Subconscious Mind

It's a bit of a game changer - she notes that our brains are wired for pleasure....
