And I realized in that moment that this was my 11 year old daughter and she was watching me. I didn’t want to be that kind of role model and start her with bad habits like this.
So in that moment I decided to stop the mindless eating and be over and done with this compulsive eating habit for good.
My family is Italian. When I was growing up….food was very important, if we weren’t eating we were talking about food. So I grew up eating fresh, homemade food a lot. And I am very appreciative of it. What I know now is that I grew up eating food that was both nutritious and delicious!
When I was pregnant with my first daughter in 2001 I discovered an amazing flavor of Haagen Dazs ice cream called Belgian Chocolate. I don’t know if any of you have ever tried it before but it’s absolutely delicious: creamy, chocolatey, with subtle little slivers of dark Belgian chocolate mixed in. It’s amazing.
I don’t recommend it.
