Sometimes I wonder if I over-do it in terms of certain foods. I always ate pretty healthy, before Crohn’s, but had a problem with any sort of baked goods and some candies. I just didn’t have much of a shut-off valve for those! Since Crohn’s, I’ve noticed I still have a problem, only this time it can have more consequences than just gaining a few pounds! Because I know my weakness, I don’t make things that are too tempting, too often. I know that I will likely over-do it, and so I just don’t do that to myself!
Well, at least not too often.
Okay, I’ve done it twice this week. 🙂
I made banana bread earlier in the week. I still have a few pieces left. I think that first day though I probably ate 4 good sized slices. Ooops!!! Thankfully it didn’t really do much to my system.
Then there’s today. I wanted some of my Almond Crisp dessert, which I have not made in a while. Again, I don’t make it very often because once it’s made, I just can’t turn away from it! It ONLY has a cup of almonds in it.
And……1/2 cup of honey.
And……1/4 cup of butter.
That’s all. Really!
It was gone within 4 hours. The whole batch. I don’t know if I’ll have to deal with my system later on, but….it was really good! I took some SF 734 to calm down any gas that might occur, which happens with this dessert if I eat the whole thing. Go figure…..
At least it’s not like when I make cinnamon rolls. Those have 4 cups of almond flour, I think 3/4 cup of butter, and about 3/4 cup honey, in addition to 3 eggs.
Those last a little longer than the Almond Crisp.
I try to make them last at least 3 days. 🙂
