On Friday at work, someone had given everyone some Easter candy treats...this was a big dilemma for me because I didn't want to eat any of it...but then again it looks so yummy. So I decided I would eat only the white and pink beans because they are the only ones that taste good, and two of the four little chocolate eggs. That way I get a little taste but don't go overboard. The rest of the candy I threw away (sorry whoever gave me the candy!)
I had two Easter events to attend and I knew I wanted to eat the foods at the meal at my house, so at the first gathering we went to I tried to eat small portions and mostly the fruit, salad, and veggies. But there was a cheddar biscuit that happened too, so good.
For the dinner at my house, I was making green beans with toasted almonds, fresh cut up fruit, jello, and the most amazing and dangerously naughty potatoes I made this recipe at Christmas too and they are so easy and so so delicious. I have yet to find a person who does not love them. However, they are are rich and are obviously not a "health" food. So I make sure to monitor my portion with them. I also made them with reduced fat cheese, low fat sour cream and a little less bacon than it calls for. That made me feel like I tried a little to make them not as awful. So trust me, I know my plate here is NOT DIET FOOD. I am aware of that , but I feel that sometimes for events you can bend a little and eat things you don't normally eat all the time. I had only one plate of food, where in the past I might have had seconds or thirds, I had smaller portions of foods, and I didn't finish my dessert- I only had a little taste.
