I threw a fishing line into my freezer and came out with a beautiful piece of salmon. 🙂 Topped with my fave Penzey Spice, “Sunny in Paris,” I paired it with green beans and sliced grape tomatoes with a tad of grated parmigiana cheese. For dessert (and to stifle my craving), Sugar Free Pudding, chocolate with a dollop of fat-free whipped cream. My go-to dessert is usually sugar-free Jello, but I’m in the mood (CRAVING!) for chocolate. Come hell or high water, I’m not going to cheat, so pudding it is!
Just my opinion, but the “Cook and Serve” S/F Pudding far surpasses the instant pudding. It takes a few extra minutes, but the after-taste is eliminated, and it’s fabulous warm. Yummy! Be careful while shopping — S/F is the BLUE box.
I’ve found that when I have a strong craving, if I can wait 15 or 20 minutes, it usually passes. Sometimes that amount of time can be torture, so I try to have something “diabetes appropriate” that can fill the bill. For me, that’s usually either chocolate Sugar-Free Pudding or S/F Jello. Adding cut up pieces of an apple to the Jello gives me a dessert that’s filling, delicious, and has the crunch that we often look for. There are lots of options — be creative!
Hey, GO FISHING! 🙂
