Food cravings can sneak up on me, knowing my triggers can help me avoid temptations that lead me down the wrong nutritional path.
My triggers are stress and fatigue.
Comforting myself at the end of a long day, facing deadlines, or trying to keep up with the business of life can mean indulging in an unplanned dessert, pulling the ice cream container from the bottom of the freezer or craving a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie.
Yup, sweets are my thing, I’ve heard that salt is the vice of others.
How do I manage my triggers?
I try to distract myself by getting out of the kitchen, taking my dogs for a walk, or I try to keep my food triggers out of my house.
