Mmm….sugar (I write this only half an hour after eating some ice cream). I have been sensitive to sugar for as long as I can remember. And when you add that sensitivity to pregnancy hormones, let’s just say it gets interesting. With my diminished appetite and rapid fullness lately, I’ve been a touch picky with my food. More bread and simple carbs have found their way than I’d prefer (and my mood swings show it!). Thankfully I can eat cooked ...
I love Halloween. I LOVE chocolate. And I HATE guilt. For those of us trying to watch what we eat (or who have various issues with sugar) Halloween is just the beginning of the season of temptation and over-indulgence. I have very fond memories of trick-or-treating as a child with a pillow case, then sitting with friends exchanging candy from our piles of treasure.
Well, technically all living things are food addicts; no food = no life. And at some point, I’m sure we’ve all had cravings for something. But is there a food that haunts you? Is there a food you crave on a daily basis? What about a food that if you try to avoid it, you think about it even MORE? You’re not alone.
Hi. My name is Rachel, and I have no control. If there is a plate of cookies in front of me, I will eat a plate of cookies (well, not the plate, although it might get licked). Growing up I was pretty sure that Oreos were a food group, and it seemed totally normal to have a few (or more) after lunch and usually after dinner too.
