Taste"Buds"...or are they?????

Saturday, October 06, 2012

I love the commercial for FiberOne cereal with the TasteBuds wearing red knitwear-talking about bacon, cookies, ice cream.....The woman sitting on the couch talking to her husband says-This FiberOne will tame her TasteBuds.....He disagrees-but she's right-the Buds start singing a new song about crunchy deliciousness, after one taste.

It seems that's exactly what I've had to do to my "Buds"-trick them a wee bit-with tasty alternatives to my usual higher calorie cravings. Pita for white bread. Hummus, Smart Balance or one pat for one tablespoon of butter. Mozzarella for cheddar. Small bite of brownie for 2 large squares.

My taste "Buds" weren't being true friends to me! They led me to all sorts of carbohydrate cravings. They would even say "More" when clearly I'd had enough. I see now that I have to tell my "Buds" a few little lies, until they get into some better habits. Telling the "Buds" ---"This is GOOD for YOU." isn't good enough-they just don't care...but saying:
"This FOOD is GOOD"-works!

Here's to all of our "Buds" singing a new, healthy, positive song!

    Oh Cheryl -- I love this!!! I need to train my 'buds' to be better helpers with my body and my needs!!! I hve not seen that commercial but I'll be looking for it now! (and my dh eats Fiber One all the time) I think straw might have a better flavor !!!! The cheese thing I'm getting down - I love mozzarella cheese sticks now (50 calories) It is my go to snack many times. I've even learned to do it WITHOUT Triscuits (even tho they'd be ok) from time to time. -- less carbing!! Now to work on pasta......hmmmm....
