Friend Makin' Mondays- trigger foods

I feel so tired today, it was a busy weekend, a busy Monday and things are just all that right to me. I spent all week driving, that when the weekend comes I just want to veg out at home, but I decided for the last two weekends to go out with the little guy and show some of the Easter spirit. I am not a huge fan of the tradition since where I come from, as Catholics, we have a mourning week, we go to church, we visit seven churches, we don't eat to me bunnies do not mean Easter at all; but I don't want Aiden to be the only kid who does not hunt for eggs. So we did that, and lots of cooking. I made Fish Friday (Parmesan encrusted tilapia), Burgers on Saturday, and since my Sis was doing Easter Dinner I made our traditional dessert "Habichuelas con dulce" Here are some pics:

My Sis made cupcakes (24 of them, but I did not try them :)

My Dominican Habichuelas (is a sweet dessert) and this I did try :)

He rather pick sticks than eggs, that kid.

Fake smile to get me away from him

Trust me they where good. My oldest was bugging me to make them.

I got to speak to my eldest brother, who has Colon cancer, and it does not seem that things are not going well. He wont tell us much but I know things are getting worst...I wont bore you with that. So lets jump into this weeks FMM:

Friend Makin’ Mondays: Trigger Foods

  1. Are there foods in your life that always seem to trigger overeating? Yes
  2. If so, what are they? Chinese Food and sweets
  3. When are you most likely to give into strong cravings? That time of the month for sure; I go from craving sweets to wanting Chinese like crazy.
  4. Are you more likely to be triggered by salty foods or sugary foods? Sugar, is a family thing.
  5. How do you get back on track after overeating? I try to get back to more healthy foods and throw away the rest of the junk.
  6. Are there any foods that you allow yourself to eat without limits? no, and to be honest I don't eat that much. Seems crazy for someone who is over weight but I have never been one to finish more that 2 slices of pizza, I cannot eat a pint of ice cream, and when I do order Chinese I choose their dinner combo which is smaller.Is just that I rather eat cake than dinner, and bread is part of my life.
  7. Do you notice a change in your emotions while eating trigger foods? If I eat Chinese I feel happy, but I think is mostly because I had a day off from the Kitchen :) .
  8. Do you have a strategy to keep yourself from overeating trigger foods? I don't get them! I have been craving Chinese like crazy for the past 8 weeks but have not gotten it. Since I love Sushi I plan on getting some maybe this weekend so it should not be too bad.

Now it’s your turn to answer this week’s questions! Don’t forget to come back and link up in the comments! Happy Monday!

Oh I agree with you sister, sugar at that time is so hard, my worst time of all, I just try not to shop that week! Shame the boys want feeding that week. Stopped over from FMM.

My trigger foods also include Thai or Chinese inspired eggplant, which is often loaded in grease...
