The other day I was thinking about some of my downfall foods, you know, the ones that can get you in trouble. I realized I have a lot of those types of foods.
Yesterday, when my husband and I were at the grocery store picking up a few things for supper, he wanted to buy some cheese for an appetizer before our meal and I politely suggested we find something else. We opted for some olive bruschetta and pita chips, which turned out to be very good…especially with the zin and pinot noir we were sipping on.
Cheese, I have decided, is one of my downfall foods. I do eat cheese on an almost daily basis, but it’s Weight Watchers string cheese, which is the best good-for-you string cheese I have tried. I also eat a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch nearly every day during the week. I use the 2 percent cheese slices that are only 50 calories each. I typically buy Crystal Farms because it is the cheapest. Plus, they are really good and they melt really well.
When it comes to cheese, though, I could eat it at every meal. I love all kinds of cheeses, including cheddar, colby, Dubliner, swiss, smoked gouda, feta, mozzarella, muenster, Jarlsberg and oh so many more. I really wish cheese was better for you.
I have other downfall foods, which I have talked about on a regular basis, including ice cream, chips and dip, Cool Whip, sugary cereal, cookies, cakes, bars, almost anything chocolate, crackers, creamy pastas and oh my, there are so many more.
So, what about you? What are your downfall foods and what do you do about them? Do you cut them out all together? Do you have a treat now and then? Can you control yourself around naughty foods?
Please share your food addictions with me and also any tips for how you deal with your downfall foods. I can’t wait to hear from you and I look forward to reading your thoughts!
