My first real craving
I'm starting to want junk food again! I knew it would happen in a few days. I had lasagna for dinner and allowed myself a small baked potato with a bit of Earth Balance on it mmmm. And I had a few chocolate chips too. I'm making baked bananas to tide me over. Its just bananas with sugar, a bit of Earth Balance, cinnamon and lemon juice. I'm hoping this dessert satisfies me enough. Its one of the dessert recipes I mentioned from Vegan Cooking for One, so that there are no leftovers to be tempted by. Lets hope this works! I think I'm over the worst of it (I sound like a crack junkie!) but the bananas are already in the oven, so I might as well try it!
OK, they're out of the oven, they look good enough but I just can't get into them. I guess I don't like the taste of baked bananas. Oh well, I tried :) They might have been better with some ice cream but I'm trying to avoid that stuff!
Anyways, I don't think I've ever disliked a dessert so much. Not even the melted chocolate chips could save it! But the good news is I'm over my junk food attack and the worst of it was a baked potato with margarine and a couple tablespoons of chocolate chips! Plus they have iron in them so they're good for you ;)
Do you guys have any tips on how to get past these times?
