Okay so I'm struggling,
'With what?' you might ask 'you've just been on a gorgeous holiday!' I know I know, life is good and I'm not complaining. It's just this,
I have a sweet tooth, not just one tooth actually, a full flaming set, my entire mouth tingles as it cries 'give me sweet treats!' (Squeaky evil voice)
Yes I know the logic is don't eat the bad stuff, it's easy right? Don't buy it, don't put it into your hand, do not put it into your mouth...
So I don't have chocolate and cake in the house because otherwise it's there to be eaten (Yep no actual stamina!) If I fancy it I have to get off my backside and go and buy it. But if I meet friends or visit their houses, 'oh go on then, it won't hurt' or if my daughter offers me her bad food, 'oooh yeh one will be fine'!
This is me.
I told a friend that I couldn't stop eating and craved sweet stuff and she kindly suggested duct tape!
I actually choked on my coffee! I then pondered the additional lip waxing benefits... well I am nearly forty I could get a head start!
Okay I am trying... I'm back at swimming next week and I'm getting my steps in but how to stop those sweet cravings? I have my dinner and then immediately think how nice it would be to have a pudding! I don't have pudding every night, I really don't but I always think about it.
What is wrong with me?!
So I'm asking you, yes you my loyal (Or pained 😆) readers, my 'tell it how it is' friends. What is the answer?!
My current solutions are:
And have a look at this! I've just discovered a new Instagram page and its for people like me! Free recipes for treats to quench my sweet cravings, but get this, they're healthy! Woo!
(The photo's are gorgeous too!)
So nourish by her shared a new recipe this week and it's even better than the banana ice-cream!
Banana, peanut butter and choc bites
Cut a banana lengthways, then into chunks (as if it was still whole, rounds if you like) Then here's the magic, spread a half with peanut butter, sandwich the other half on and coat in melted dark chocolate.
Freeze for a couple of hours and Voila!
I had nearly all of these things in yesterday so bought some dark chocolate and got to work. It took me no more than ten minutes and after dinner when I was dreaming of pudding, I had these!
They're honestly delicious! I'm making more tomorrow.
(banana ice-cream today 😉)
Healthy, tasty, even chocolate! and I love it when a recipe uses stuff I actually have in my cupboards!
So while I maintain banana sales for my local supermarket, give me your ideas,
how do you eat sweet but stay healthy?
What do you suggest? and don't be sending me duct tape!
