You’re faced with too many choices every day. We all are. There are times in my life (hello PMS) when I close my eyes and am immediately transported to a path I didn’t choose. I see myself reclined on a massive polar bear skin rug where a rugged millionaire is feeding me an endless supply of cheetos. That’s a story for another time … but you catch my drift, right? Choices.
If you have the tv on at any point during the day your brain is inundated with suggestions, and some of them are super compelling. I can’t EVER see someone drinking coffee on tv without heading to the kitchen to turn on the espresso machine. I’m that susceptible to the power of suggestion. Plus I love coffee. Offspring calls me a coffee monster.
Same goes for chocolate. If there isn’t a healthy nugget of dark chocolate laying around when the craving hits, I’ve been known to creep in to my daughter’s room and dig through her Halloween candy, and yes it’s March and yes she still has a bucketful that she forgets about until I remind her by asking if I can help myself. She’s not a sugar junkie yet.
You Can Do Better
Fortunately, you can fortify your defenses against the mighty Shug, by stockpiling an arsenal of good for you goodies. Bulletproof’s Collagen Protein Bars are what have saved me from from making bad choices many times, and this week I got to try a new flavor. Lemon cookie, my new favorite! Now when my sweet tooth is triggered I have something delicious and nutritious to reach for.
If it’s salt you’re craving, try mixing your favorite hot sauce with some Brain Octane Oil and drizzle it on popcorn. I find that I need hardly any salt if I treat my tastebuds to spice. A few of my favorites for popcorn are Tabasco Chipotle, or Franks Red. I recently found a treasure trove of hot sauce at a store in Tsawwassen Mills and they had a Jamaican sauce called Pickapeppa that I used to buy by the case when I lived in the Bahamas. My tastebuds were so happy!
