sugar fix


Such a tragic day today.

I'm craving sugar like nothing on earth and a lengthy search of the cupboards, fridge and freezer proved completely pointless. Then, tucked away behind a can of chopped tomatoes appeared this.....

Nothing to get excited over, I assure you. I mean, it's rice pudding which is good. But it is low fat and low sugar rice pudding which is not good. But you know what they say, any port in a storm and all that. It was still in date - just - and I really can't identify a viable reason for it being in my cupboard in the first place. But not wanting to look a gift horse (more like gift donkey) in the mouth, I heat it in the microwave and add a dollop of jam to the top. It's apricot jam and the only reason I have that is that it was left over from the cakes I had to make before Christmas. Strictly speaking it should be strawberry jam for rice pudding. But if apricot is all I have then it will have to do.

I need to get out.

I need a trip to the newsagents for Cadburys Creme Eggs (yes I'm still on about them) and maybe a vanilla slice from the bakery.

Who switched on my sugar switch and will you turn it back off again please as this is most inconvenient!

Oh doll, you're gonna have to get the eggs - weight watcher rice pudding and apricot jam are not going to fix your sugar need! If you're craving it, then your body needs it. Don't deny your needs!

pusher robot - Aw thanks! That was a sweet thing to say!

firetiger - Nice to meet you, hope you'll come by again soon

chelle - At least being a woman gives me a reasonable excuse for these cravings - there have to be some perks to it :)

tigerlily - I think it's the fact that we can only get them between Christmas and Easter that makes us want them more!

pandora - I limped to the newsagents - haven't walked that far for 7 weeks and I'm in agony now, but it was so totally worth it *licks chocolate from lips*

jonathon - So it was you was it? Naughty boy!

I used to love those eggs. I haven't had one for several yrs.
I do have a bag of
"mini-100,000 bars" & I love those.

I get sugar cravings too.

No thanks on the rice pudding though:)

I'm a confirmed junk food addict so sugar is a staple of my diet. I need to quit or I'll be having coronary bypass surgery by the time I'm 34.

Hey this is probably a bit weird but I have discovered that a glass of milk takes the edge of sugar cravings.

I drink soy milk and it is a lot sweeter, so that may help...anyway...just a (told you it's weird!)

Okay, babe, if the funk day the other day wasn't a big enough indicator that your hormones are on their wild rollercoaster ride, the intense sugar craving should tell you something.

Shouldn't it?

Two words;
Caramel Slice.

If you don't have caramel slice start pouring condensed milk and drinking cholocate in your mouth. That is sure to fix it... right after you throw up, mind you, but it will kill the sugar craving.

shelly - Sugar cravings make me mad - because I know it is my body that needs it but my mind is giving me a hard time over it.

bent - I'm a chocolate addict, but even there I can generally keep it under control. But this sugar thing is something else entirely!

MG - I didn't know that, but it's strange that you should mention milk - last night I poured myself a glass of milk for the first time in about 10 years!

~S~ - I know, my love - you know me better than I know myself xxx

rose - Now a caramel slice sounds good. but condensed milk and drinking chocolate? Never mind killing the sugar craving, I should think that will kill just about anything!

God, I feel so out of the loop.. what is a vanilla slice? and a caramel slice?

I can't eat Cadbury creme eggs. They just freak me out. I do however, LOVE Cadbury caramel eggs.

Oh I used to love Cadbury creme eggs when I was a teen/young adult. I had one again a few years ago, I almost gagged. Definitely something better left to memory for me. I hate when I get cravings like that, though. Mine are usually for salty foods.

daydreamer - Now caramel eggs are too sweet for me - figure that one out because I can't!

sassyfemme - Turkish Delight is best left to memories too, I think
