They are all holidays where candy plays a part. Be it candy corn, candy canes or candy in a heart shaped box the candy is there and hard to miss. But honestly, I have no problem saying no to those.
The holiday candy I do have a problem avoiding?
I went to the drug store today and was hit with a wall of Cadbury. Seriously, I love it all! Jellybeans (of the Starburst variety), Whoppers Robin Eggs, Cadbury mini-eggs, Cadbury cream eggs and Cadbury caramel eggs (notice a Cadbury theme?). Chocolate in the shape of a bunny, and you have to admit that Reese's cups taste better when they are in the shape of an egg. And Peeps! We can't forget Peeps! It all tastes amazing! And I never said "no" to it before, but I am going to now.
|At the egg dyeing|
A couple of years ago a few of my friends all got together and had an egg dyeing party. I'm thinking we should definitely do it again this year. So this way, whenever I am having a hankering for an Easter treat I can eat an Easter egg (sans yolk) instead. We'll see how it goes I suppose!
This week hasn't been great for me in terms of my diet. I have been fighting some of the worst cravings I've ever experienced since this whole thing began. I don't know if its an adjustment I just need to fight through, if it's a hormonal thing (not to be too explicit, but you probably get my drift) or it its just a fluke. All I know is that I can't seem to get enough salty goodness. For serious.
