I try to eat healthy, and one of the ways I accomplish it is to not have too much junk in the house- because if it is there, it calls out to me. Sometimes it is just a whisper and I can brush it off, replace it with a song (also, in my head). But sometimes, those temptations scream out to me so loudly that there is only one way to quell them- give in! And boy does that feel good!
I looked around the house to see what temptations were hiding in the closets and cabinets…
Although I have to call the first one a temptation, the truth is that I am doing my husband a favor each time I give in to this one. You see, he buys these packages which have 4 different types of mini chocolate bars, but he only actually likes three of the four. I hate to let food go to waste, so what’s a girl to do?
Then, there’s the jellybeans. It all started two years ago, when Matt bought an oversized jar of jellybeans for his new year’s eve party. Unfortunately, there were a lot leftover. He stuck them on the counter in the kitchen and there they sat, all colorful and happy, just asking for someone to reach into the jar and grab a few. They became my almost nightly indulgence- each one a different tasty celebration of flavor. It too a while to finish the first jar, but since then, our counter has never been without a jar of jellybeans. Although no longer a nightly habit, they are my go-to dessert-snack.
