Auntie Anne's???? You Decide!
Well, as you know we have removed white flour and white sugar from our life...for the most part. Yes, we do occasionally enjoy a treat. However, we NEVER buy it for our home.
Anyway, this past weekend we decided to cash in on that coupon! Yehya. I was excited to get a pretzel. Afterall, I haven't had one in quite some time. Off to the mall we go, get our pretzels, do a bit a shopping and return home with the goods. I bite off bits of my pretzel here and there...sure to save at least 1/2 for dessert. After dinner, I sit down to enjoy my newly heated pretzel only to find...YUCK...this thing is way to sweet! I don't like this very much. I remove as much cinnamon and sugar as I can, leaving behind quite a nice collection. Ewwwwww! It's grossing me out!
This is a moment that has happened to me over and over again, since making my lifestyle change! And I welcome it! There are so many things I once enjoyed that I no longer enjoy. It seems once you remove all the sugar and salt, processed food...your taste buds become more sensitive...the sugary, salty treats taste extreme, and to me not so good. I LOVE it. Why? It means I've truly made a change. I've adjusted to that change. I accept that change and I get to lead a much healthier life. Yay!
