this looks like a good book.
Yesterday was a bad day. I won’t go into details, but I ran to the store with the intention of buying junk food to “make me feel better”. Guess what sucks? It didn’t work! I ate so much garbage and felt so gross and crappy last night. I really don’t know why I do this to myself… after last night though, I feel more determined to stop.
I think I am going to try and convince myself that I am pre-diabetic (which could actually be true, idk. a lot of crappy-food eating americans fall into this category.) And when people offer me garbage food at parties and get-togethers and work, I’ll just be like, “Sorry, can’t. Pre-diabetic.” haha! I just really hope it helps convince ME at the store. “Oh, you want that chocolate??” *sad face* “Sorry, you are pre-diabetic. Guess you will just have to eat healthy!” Getting diabetes scares the crap out of me and I know that I am headed down that road when I eat badly.
Anyways, I’ve realized that I need a new thing to do when I’m emotional/sad/depressed. The food thing just isn’t working out for me anymore. I’m not sure what to do. I know a lot of people exercise… but sometimes that isn’t possible. Too late/dark/cold outside. Any suggestions? What do other people do?
sweet potato chips!
Best invention ever!!!! Okay, that might be a SLIGHT exaggeration, but I’m not sure…. because I LOVE MY SILPATS!! I am so happy that I read about them when I was learning how to make sweet potato chips in the oven. Before I found out about silpats, I was using parchment paper.
Now, that I have silpats, making my homemade potato chips is so much easier. I also use them for pretty much all my baking needs. NOTHING sticks to the things! they are great!
i’m salivating now..
These cookies are so yummy, they have quickly become a new family favorite! My husband requests them almost every weekend. He says they are better than normal chocolate chip cookies! That really means something coming from a Non-health-nut!
These cookies taste like toffee candy to me, I love them! I have tried making them with egg before, because it makes them rise and have more of a cookie texture. But, they are SO much better without egg! They have such a different (better!) taste and texture to them. Try them, you won’t regret it! And, if you have a picky husband like mine, I bet he will love them too!!
it’s brown, but it’s not chocolate 🙂
You guys will not believe this. I went to 2 stores and did NOT buy any form of chocolate or refined sugar! I am so proud.
I still decided to indulge tonight. It’s really funny that this is what I chose instead of chocolate. haha! Trust me, I even surprised myself.
It’s weird. I walked past the cheese section and I saw a bunch of different dips. Artichoke dip, spinach dip, and BLACK BEAN DIP. I saw that and remembered my awesome black bean dip recipe. It is so easy and so tasty.
So, I bought some cream cheese at the store and came home and whipped it up. It is SO delicious! And hey, guess what? No sugar! haha!
