(I'll trade you my bacon for your cheese) #887

You’re right. I had a run in with Blackout Cake from Cheesecake Factory St. Patrick’s Day weekend and I was knocked out for days. But, sometimes it’s worth it. As long as it’s pre-planned, and not constant, I say YOLO.

You are right. Nothing wrong with indulging now and then in something you REALLY want. If I felt unable to resist I would have a small piece but I was fine. I ate salmon right before I left for the party and had some fat bombs pre made for my “dessert” when I got home. This time wasn’t the time when I just couldn’t live without it PLUS I’m on the roll with losing weight which was extra motivation. In the middle of a stall I may have not fared as well. :grimacing:

What’s the occasion?

Really just being an old nut on the internet, and liking a challenge, Darren. Over the New Year’s holiday as 2017 changed to 2018 the best friend of one of my sisters-in-law was in town, and she showed me this recipe, saying she’d like to see somebody make it. It’s fairly involved and labor intensive - it took me 5.5 hours.

Things didn’t work out for me to attempt it last year, so by god I got it done this year.

Well that’s impressive @OldDoug, on BOTH counts! :+1:


#893

Peeps donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts


(Awesome Cheerleader For All) #894

Oh my, like they don’t come with enough sugar already. :weary:


(Diane) #895

I used to love those circus peanuts (the orange, sort of marshmellowy candy) and candy corn. And, similar to those peeps, the ingredients are sugar, sugar, chemical dyes and… more sugar. It makes me a little ill to think about what it did to my body.

Even when I do make keto friendly candies and deserts, they at least taste like something real and have a reasonable nutrient profile (including micronutrients).


(Awesome Cheerleader For All) #896

That makes two of us.


(Christy) #897

Wow!! That is beautiful!!


(Doug) #898

:smile: Diane, what a perfect example. Indeed, to think of the past… :neutral_face:


#899

More of those damn cookies at work. But not just the frosted ones, there were PB cookies too!

And, I’m happy to announce…there are FOUR of us Ketonians at work now! YAY!!!

One of the Ketos brought some jerky packs to me - I guess to evaluate. They were teriyaki flavored- which means SUGAR. So, I showed her she’d be eating a total of 18 grams of sugar if she bought them. She face palmed. I sent her back to find some meat snacks with no sugar…which she finally did.

I’m going to start a Keto-recipe box so we can swap recipes. Then we can bring OUR goodies to work, and share too.

Today I didn’t eat my sons chocolate birthday cake. I didn’t even lick the cream off my fingers when I transferred some to a container to take to work. I was so very tempted, but I can’t afford to slip back on this.


(Awesome Cheerleader For All) #901

SWEET…I mean, NICE!

You’re becoming quite the Keto Ambassador, @SecondBreakfast. :slight_smile:


(Awesome Cheerleader For All) #902

Okay, that technically would have been excusable, but I’m SO PROUD of you for resisting!


(Britt) #903

I could leave the donuts but I love peeps SO much it’s insane but no Peeps for me this season :grin:


#904

Awe I just love that Dunkin’ Donuts icing , before keto I would get their frosted donuts with sprinkles and just eat the icing off of it lol.


#905

Some of the spices in the KFC crispy coating seem to burn my lips. I’ve hated that sensation since I was a little kid, so I avoid it anyways. I’d loved to have eaten the skin, but not with all that ick on it.


#906

Someone had those drumstick ice cream cones at work today for a birthday celebration. Didn’t even touch one.

Another funny…one of my bosses said to me," I wish I could get my husband on Keto. Any ideas?"
Lol. I have to pull together recipes for her that he’d eat. And ones that she’d make. :wink:
