Day #27 Eat Dessert When It's Special
In a restaurant in my small hometown is the sign "Life is Short, Eat Dessert First"! I will say there are very few times that I eat there, but when I do eat there I actually do eat dessert first! Their speciality is dessert and it is a special outing like birthday, anniversary or visit from an out-of-town friend when I go there. The opportunity to do this is probably six or seven times a year and I take advantage of it and love the desserts.
In our family growing up, dessert was only served on holidays or birthdays so during my normal daily life I don't have difficulty passing up dessert because that is my normal.
If you read my lesson on Day #16 when I took a day to think about and find what would be the one decadent thing I wanted most, you will know that what I chose was mashed potatoes and gravy!
This month I will wait for the special times: granddaughter's baby shower, our 55th wedding anniversary and Thanksgiving dinner. Maybe like it was at the birthday party, two bites of dessert will be enough! If not I will try to eat without guilt, remember food is for fuel or flavor and enjoy it.
Wishing you a great day. Take time to taste and enjoy the food you choose.
