How much could a cookie have changed?
While I ran some errands this afternoon and The Hubbs watched the kiddos, he made some cookies for the family. These are cookies that have been sitting for 3 months on the shelf waiting to be made. They are SO sweet that I didn't want to eat them all, so that's why I hadn't made them. Yet, about once every other week The Hubbs would ask me to.
He saved me 1 because he knows my problem with sweets...I will eat them all. I was thankful to have 1 cookie to eat after dinner, a nice treat. I bit into one and it seemed off-tasting. I couldn't peg it, and I certainly didn't want say anything to him. I then walked by it again and took another bite and The Hubbs comes up next to me and says "They are really sweet, huh?". That is what the off-taste was. It was so over the top sweet compared to what we have been eating. I jumped for joy inside! We were finally rounding a corner I so desperatly wanted for all of us. We have cut nearly all desserts and treats from our diet. We're certainly eating more fruit and it shows. I still make sweet things, but they're good for us, not just sugar and flour.
I'm so happy that our Primal 1-week challenge has had lasting effects :)
