Here's what I've learned.
...I have little self control when it comes to sweet treats that are gluten free.
...I tend to fall apart on the weekends.
So now, the trick is to figure out why that happens, and avoid it!
Here's the plan. I am not going to bake large amounts of gluten free carrot cake, unless there is a lot of people at my house who will help me eat it. I ended up finishing off the cake so I wouldn't be tempted any more, and so I could start the week fresh. (wink wink)
Mmmm, it was good.
Second, I am going to have to plan for healthy treats on the weekend, so I can still have a reward that won't sabotage my efforts. I think if I have the ingredients all together to make my healthy treat, I won't default to creating something that I won't be able to resist.
Third...Keep the really bad stuff out of my house. AKA gourmet chocolate and carrot cake. At least there was carrots in it!
Does anyone else struggle with portion control when it comes to dessert?
