How do you indulge?


  • Nov 04, 2011 12:42 AM GMT
    What is your idea of indulging when it comes to food? I know we are all nutrition-conscious, we all try to eat right etc., but sometimes we just want to forget it all and let go! My idea of indulging is a bottle of red wine and a good chunk of nutty and mushroomy blue cheese, yum:-) What's yours?

    A Hershey bar, but don't tell my geriatrician!

    Actually, no food will hurt you if you don't eat it too often. Even full-fat ice cream is OK if you eat it only twice a year or so.

    I have a sweet tooth, so I am working very hard to avoid desserts of any kind. Right now, when I have an indulge day - it's pizza. To squelch my sweet craving, I get a bbq chicken with pineapple.

    I indulge almost every day - huge bowl of roasted butternut squash with pepper and cinnamon. It's better than any dessert.

    As long as you get plenty of good, healthy nutrition on a daily basis--lots of veggies/fruits especially--and are doing vigorous exercise as well, you can indulge guilt-free in the occasional bowl of ice cream or danish pastry. For some reason, cheese is my downfall.

    Well, from your pictures, it looks as though you can get away with it.

    When ordered at Mexican restaurants, that kind of food causes me problems. It is usually overloaded with sodium. That forces me to drink a lot of water then I have to get up several times during the night to get rid of the excess water.

    Can you quantify "occasional"?

    Lately, it's been gourmet chocolates. They taste great, and I can limit myself more easily to just a few bite-sized pieces.

    Twice a year?! I wish I had the will power and self-discipline to have ice cream just twice a year!

    I'm the same. When I get ice cream, I just make ice cream soup with it.

    Last night I cooked chicken penne alfredo. Tonight I'm doing it again, only this time I'm making my own alfredo sauce (googled how to make it) because the store-bought stuff sucks.

    Your culinary accomplishments and abilities greatly exceed mine.

    Today, I let myself go a little: Had a few Halloween candy bites. Damn, Reese's are good.

    I buy the Skinny Cow ice creams. They're in small portions, but only have between 120 - 150 calories per container. That satisfies my cravings for ice cream without the likelihood of me going too crazy.

    Now, it's not the same as Haag-n-Daz coffee ice cream, but life is filled with sacrifices.

    Watch the same part a movie over and over, while eating as much as I can without throwing up, while crying.
