It's been several days since I have been online. I spent countless hours ridding the home PC of some nasty viral issues and subsequently, I was mostly "off the grid" for a while.
But, I'm back and I have some super exciting things in the works!
It seems that from one week to the next I am developing some sort of food obsession--one food ingredient that I seem to crave constantly. Or it becomes the focus of many meals and/or snacks. This is a new thing for me and I think it is actually kind of funny now that I have picked up on this quirky new "habit".
I have had recent obsessions with
Justin's Maple Almond Butter
I would literally just eat it by the teaspoon full. I have had to use a tad of self control some days to keep from eating the entire jar. I even ate an almond butter/egg white omelet. Not that bad actually....
specifically, Braeburn or Gala-I just could not stop eating them! I stared keeping the apples in the fridge vs. the fruit bowl in the kitchen and WOW! they were so crisp and tart. I'd slice one up and dip it into some Justin's Maple Almond Butter -- we got a double obsession
in everything, on everything-salad, pita pockets, plain
many were consumed one week. Even Lola got in on this one
as omelets, scrambled eggs, egg salad, egg whites, over easy
and this weeks focus is
I just realized that the big container of salsa I picked up on Monday is almost gone. Today is Wednesday. Almost 24 oz of salsa gone.
Where did it go?
I was eating it with celery and cuke slices
Topping my salad as a salad dressing
with eggs post workout
I guess it could be worse--I could be craving junk food.
Have you ever had these kind of cycles where you seem to focus on one kind of food or flavor??
Speaking of food and obsessions, how about mixing two fabulous things-Running and cupcakes!!
