Sometimes, I need to remind myself to eat healthier. You know… less processed foods and high glycemic carbohydrates, and more fresh vegetables and lean protein instead. In a nutshell, I need to eat more chickpeas and less chocolate. (see what I did there? 😉 )
Today was one of those not-so-healthy days. I planned on having a bowl of soup and an egg salad sandwich for lunch, but I ended up sneaking in an ice cream sandwich and a sugary granola bar as well. And a handful of honey roasted peanuts. Yeah… I have this love-hate relationship with trigger foods.
My trigger foods:
- Ice cream/ice cream sandwiches
- Peanut butter
- Honey roasted peanuts
- Cashews and almonds
- Desserts (cake/pie/brownies/cookies…)
- Mashed potatoes
- Pretzels (chocolate covered pretzels!)
- Bagels with cream cheese
- Flaky buttermilk biscuits
- Bread (hot from the oven)
Yikes. I’m a carb girl.
What are your trigger foods?
