We had a family reunion today. You know how you can never find anything worth eating at those things. ;-) I was good however. I had my usual bran muffin that I use all whole wheat flour and substitute the sugar for Stevia in the Raw when I bake them. I had a handful of almonds before I left. I made a green bean casserole to take as I have a bazillion of them. I had slaw, taco salad, two naked hot dogs from the grill, some of my green bean casserole, and cantaloupe for dessert.
There were plenty of opportunities to "stray". There was potato salad that looked great as well as a pasta salad. There was a Texas sheet cake, a peanut butter pie, and cookies in addition to a jello cake all of which did not tempt me. I will say it again. If you will get the carbs out of your system they do not call your name anymore. I never thought I would see the day. I just drank water and had some black coffee. I passed on the beer I was offered.
When at events like this we must do the best we can. I am probably done eating for the day. I will probably have one more cup of decaf coffee with creamer and some green tea. I like those flavored creamers for a treat but they can be a little "much". I mix them half/half with half & half - does that make sense? There are 2 cups of creamer in those bottles so I mix 1 cup of the creamer with 1 cup of the half & half and it cuts the carbs in half. I know I probably should leave creamers out all together but it is a treat that I enjoy and doesn't take me out of my carb limit for the day.
After all, it's low carb not no carb. I think my liver can handle the small amount of additives in this. It's a choice. Do you have any "sinful" things that are a treat for you but which you can control now?
Be careful out there today.
