As a follow-up on yesterday’s post, the Today Show had a great clip this morning on whole grain breads, & they included some great ideas for tasty brands, including gluten free! Here’s the link to the video:
Today Show: “How Healthy is the Bread You’re Eating?”
On a different note…I crave sugar when I have a cold. Really, really crave it. And I’ve got a cold. I have been craving chocolate all day. So this has been a tough diet day…but I have made it; no chocolatey-sugar-coated stuff for me. Hot green tea seems to help with cravings, but I’m picky. I only like the kind that’s flavored with fruits, because I hate plain green tea. Isn’t that weird? Most people love green tea! I love all of the Tea Republic teas, and I am currently drinking the one with Acai berry in it- love it! Arizona Tea makes two great cold-brewed teas, peach and pomegranate. It’s also tough to find teas I can have because I don’t drink any caffeine. Sometimes I hate that, because there are some awesome coffees I would love to have, but of course, they are caffeinated. Also, when I’m on call, it’s so tempting to have a little cup of coffee. Even a little sip, though, and I’m up for hours. If I have a whole cup, I get chest pains! So I’d rather not. Rarely I will have a sip of the Hubby’s; he’s got some Chocolate Doughnut Flavored Coffee that smells heavenly when it’s brewed! When things get desperate, I do have dark cocoa roasted almonds (they’re sugar-free!) which are delicious and definitely SD friendly!
The other thing that stinks about being sick is that I just don’t feel like working out- and haven’t in about 3 or 4 days. So my weight loss has plateaued (is that a word?) for the time being (at least I’m not gaining?). I am hoping to at least do some light yoga this evening, if I can. And maybe a hot shower. And an early bedtime. That sounds better!!
