I was not prepared for lunch at the conference today. Ended up eating what was served, minus the bread on the sandwich. Hoping I didn’t inadvertently ingest any gluten. The chip ingredients are far from healthy, but I don’t think there was anything that breaks my gluten-free streak.
I’ve never been big on pickles, but that pickle tasted gooooooood. Wonder if that’s another sign of my tastes changing.
Oh- and just so everyone’s aware of what I had to resist.
Those are fudgy brownie cake pops which served as the center pieces and were offered for dessert. There was also an entire table devoted to candy (which was surprisingly easy for me to avoid- its the baked goods that are harder to resist.) Referring to the brownie pops, the ladies at my table were like, “Oh- come on! Just take one home!” I just smiled and shook my head. One lady said, “That’s willpower right there.” It wasn’t the time or place to launch into my whole story, so I just let her think I have lots of willpower. But if I’d had the time (and if she cared to listen) I would’ve explained that willpower has nothing to do with it. When you’re pretty convinced that a particular food is poisonous and can create a reaction in your body that could kill you, it’s a lot easier to resist, no matter how delicious it may be. But then I probably would’ve ruined her experience with her cake pop.
