I couldn't finish it because I was full, because....we stopped at this fruit stand, and got some really good fruit. and some fresh brazil nuts, and some dates! uh-oh! Here I am already digging into the grapes, which were yummy.
So what should I have done differently? hmmm. The nuts were great, I don't regret eating them but I ate too many, past fullness. One or two dates would have been enough but I ate several more. I'm not that huge a date fan because they are almost too sweet for my tastes. On the other hand, eating them makes me feel like I got a treat and that's a nice feeling. So how do I prevent myself from overeating them next time? Maybe I should decide how much I will eat before I start eating them, dole them out, and put the rest away. And maybe I should wait until mealtime to eat them. Then it's more of a ritual. I do like Dr. Fuhrman's idea of eating only at meal times. Well, I'd like to think I'll do better next time so I'll give it a try!
