Dodging junk carbs when eating out.

Stranger Danger!!

Get that white flour or white rice processed thing off my plate NOW before I eat it! Ugh...
Since my discipline isn't perfect, I need extra help at times, especially when eating out, when it comes to the food they bring to the table, like bread for example. It's easy enough if I were to go to dinner by myself. Otherwise, that brown molasses bread came to our table at grandpa's birthday dinner at Outback Steakhouse, and it was time to make some powerful decisions.

I cut up the bread, passed it out to everyone, and made sure I had a very small taste of it, so that I didn't go into a pouting fest regarding the wish of not having tasted the bread.

Then I asked them to bring out my grilled shrimp and veggies without the rice, and wouldn't you know, no one listened. So I ate my salad and veggies, ate my shrimp, took a couple of bites of rice, and asked them to take the plate as soon as I was finished with my shrimp, which by the way was delicious.

It's the little things like this, that keep me from making distrastrous choices and filling up with foods I had no intentions of eating in the first place.


  1. Connie I know that YOU have it in YOU to make wise choices. I can do it and so can YOU, I believe in YOU and It is very easy to just say NO I do it all the time cause I understand just how toxic the food source is out there. I am determined to get well and YOU my friend are determined to stay well!

  2. yes Denise, thanks for the positive votes! We are all in this food dance together and we will get this right! Blessings and Love!
