I am dying for treats! It has actually made me crabby for 2 days. Oh my word.
I was going to go to Trader Joe's today to see if I could find some reasonable "everything-free" treats, but in the end I decided it might be hard to be surrounded by that much lovely food and temptation. Instead, I went to Cub Foods to get a few staples. No temptation there really. Cub is an ugly place. An ugly but necessary place. While there, I did peruse the gluten-free aisle for snacks. (I ate lunch before I went so I wouldn't be starving!). I nearly bought some "everything-free" chocolate chunks. But they kind of grossed me out. And I didn't want to wreck chocolate for myself. I eyeballed some "everything-free" granola bar type thingies. But I didn't want to be desperate enough to eat something that looked like flattened and baked poo.
I did happen upon Beanitos while I lingered there. You heard me.
I bought some. They were on sale. They're made out of black beans and practically nothing else. I can definitely eat black beans and practically nothing else. I brought them home and ate some with hummus, and they were delightful. Now I need some Beanitos in chocolate flavor and I'll be all set.
I'm down 6 pounds, by the way. Please remind me of this every 5 minutes so I quit freaking out about not being able to eat anything fun. (I actually like the food I'm eating, I'm just missing the foods I can't have!!)
