another Friday Five from RevGalBlogPals
First, Sweet or Salty? Or both? Describe that gotta-have-it treat. (It can be healthy or paleo-friendly, or decadent. We won’t judge!)
sweet...(we are what we eat, right?-laughing)
the gotta-have-it treat for me is chocolate ice cream, or being a Wisconsin gal, Frozen custard! With hot fudge, and oreo crumbles. Or mini choc. chips. Or a brownie....if I am going for it, I am going for decadence!
- Self-control: How do you help yourself stay strong with the temptation of All That Sugar?
Self-control? What is that? Seriously, this is a struggle and I have worked hard on it. Small portions, savored. Reminding myself of just HOW many calories/fat grams are in that decadent dessert.
- Have you successfully cut (or decreased) sugar out of your diet? How did you do it?
Decreased yes. I have some good quality treat, and try to eat it slowly, mindful of the aroma, flavor, texture.
- What’s one sweet you won’t do without. Ever.Dark chocolate. Preferably Dove. But a Hershey's with almonds works in an emergency!
- Just for fun: if you were a candy bar, which one would you be?Snickers or Hershey's with almonds, sweet and nutty ;)
