Good evening. Caffeine was and still is a big temptation for me as well. I used to drink a lot of diet coke back 15 years ago. I gave it up by cutting down first, then I used to put a small amount over a cut of ice chips so I felt like I was getting a a treat, but wasn't getting a lot of the chemicals. The person I had teach me said to drink only my kukacha tea warm or hot. I keep a thermos of it hot all day, and I mostly just drink that.
I agree to the convenience and temptations too. My husband likes to eat out. When I had to go strict for my healthy, I used to take my food with me. But that embarrassed him and I ate cold food. So then I started to cheat a little when I went out, trying to find fish and veggies.
Again the teacher I had said to always have a bowl of cooked rice in the fridge and then when you are hungry you just steam some up with some veggies and that I wouldn't be as tempted. Another treat he suggested was Luden Brown Rice cakes with miso and tahini mixed on it.
Today I got a few bags of fresh veggies at the farmers market.
Hope you have a great 4th tomorrow.
