Flavorful

One of the hardest addictions in life to overcome is food because you can’t simply go cold turkey. There is an option to stop smoking or using drugs (no judgment on how hard that is) to aid in combatting those addictions, but the average person can’t just stop eating to eliminate the desire. Cuisine will always tempt me like an ex lover I so desperately needed to rid myself of but couldn’t, as well as be a painful reminder that I am always in danger of backsliding. The temptation to overeat will never subside and for me, there is no such thing as willpower. Although I carry the title of repeat offender,  I finally lost (and still maintain) 70 pound via Weight Watchers twelve years ago . Eating still excites me as much as it did back then when I made the final commitment to my health, however.

I’m not the typical foodie, craving only certain delicacies like carbs or chocolate to ease the pressures of life’s challenges. I’m the volume eater, lover of ALL food and never discriminate. The tastier the meal to my palate, the more temptation there is to overindulge. I’ve never been a fan of the flavor “cardboard”, so the initial start of my journey was rocky as I sampled items I could simply “tolerate” for the rest of my life (if that’s what it took). Thankfully I stuck around long enough for Weight Watcher’s to debunk the myth that nutritious meals couldn’t be flavorful! The ability to be healthy and still enjoy food is a major reason for my success.

  1. I loved reading your post. First of all, it is nice to know that I’m not alone in my struggle with cuisine. Secondly, I completely agree with your assessment that cooking lean doesn’t have to be boring or lack flavor. Thanks for a great read! Keep up the good work.

    • I appreciate your time, kind words and comment! You are definitely not alone. At 51, I’m still learning how to make that magic happen in the kitchen but thankfully Weight Watchers has a huge database with recipes for me to try! I also like Skinnytaste.
