Do you know one thing I miss since becoming more conscious about the foods I consume? I miss satisfying a craving just by running to a store and grabbing what I want! And let me tell you, at 8.5 months prego, that can be brutal!!
Right now I would LOVE a Danish! However, there is no Danish anywhere within reasonable driving distance of me that is going to cut it. Some may look good, but in the end, I know they all taste like garbage and chances are, if I eat it, I will feel like garbage too!
This is good and bad, I suppose! Good because I know better now, but bad because when I have a craving for something, usually my only option is to make it myself. And I am pretty sure I can't make a danish the way I would imagine it to be :)
So, who has an easy danish recipe I could whip up really fast? :)
In all seriousness though, if you have changed your diet to cut out fake foods, processed foods, sugars etc etc, what is a quick go-to recipe you tend to use that helps satisfy a craving? I am curious!
And I also have to ask, when you are at a food store, do you find yourself analyzing the cart behind you? (ha!) I know, did I just say that? But, I can't help it -- I like to see what other people are buying - it is interesting to me. And, it is sad when I see a cart full of canned 'fat free' soups, diet this and that, low-fat yogurts, skim milk and a head of lettuce. It tells me this is someone who is trying to be conscious of their health and what they eat, but in reality, all of that (with the exception of the lettuce) is junk! And with the messed up food system we have here in the states, sadly, too many don't understand that. They think it is all good stuff.
