…and a sugar-holic.
Remember how I gave up sweets for the month of January. You want to know why? Check out these pictures from taken somewhere between Friday and Sunday.
Now… I’d also like you to imagine pictures of half a piece of chocolate cake, a mini hot fudge sundae, and frosted animal crackers. Yes…this is precisely why I have to ban myself from sweets periodically. I allow myself to have them and it spirals out of control, most of the time the spiraling is centered around vacations.
I’m no dietician
clearly what dietitian eats like this but I think what is happening is some sort of sugar addiction. It starts small, a treat here and a there but then my body starts craving the sugar after every single meal, even breakfast. Once I give in and eat something sweet it makes me want to eat something salty which then makes me want to eat something sweet again! Last night for example: I had a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt topped with some dark chocolate hot fudge and whipped cream, ten minutes after eating it I ate 4 tortilla chips, I realized what was happening stopped eating and threw away the slightly stale tortilla chips. BUT I still felt like I wanted something, which was probably to go to sleep, but instead of going to sleep…
Can anyone help me further diagnose or solve my sugar addiction….please I really need your help otherwise I’m going to go eat a huge candy bar and then feel really guilty about it when I’m done!
Anyway! Enough about my crazy eating habits and onto some yummy restaurant pictures! Yesterday on the way back over to Orlando I had to venture to the other side of town to get my beloved laptop back from the Apple store. I saw an opportunity to finally use my first Groupon!
The verdict: A keeper for sure! Anywhere that can prepare fish that I actually like is a keeper in my book! They also had an amazing fresh salsa bar, my favorite was the corn and black bean! Although I didn’t snap a picture of Rob’s enormous fajita burrito, since I was too busy eating, I’d still like to share his feelings about Lime with you. He said that compared to Moe’s and Chipotle… Lime would always beat Moe’s but he’d have to alternate between Lime and Chipotle. This is a huge compliment to Lime since Chipotle is Rob’s absolute favorite, I’m pretty sure if it was always his choice where we ate I’d be living off of fajita vegetable and black bean salads.
Another amazing thing…this meal cost us, meaning Rob, a grand total of $4.04. My Groupon was $7 for $15 dollars worth of food but since Groupon gave me $15 bucks just for signing up I technically didn’t even pay the original $7! That’s what I call a deal!
I’m going to eat a spoonful of PB to get my sweet fix and then attempt to go to bed at 10:30 since going to bed at 2 and waking up at 11 today didn’t go so well.
Questions for You?
Can you help me with my sugar addiction?
Do you have any food “addictions”?
What is your favorite “fresh” tex-mex restaurant? I’m with Rob! Chipotle and Lime are comparably delicious but different in their own ways, I’m calling it a tie!
