Double whammy

How many times do you walk through the food aisle when you are on a diet? It is one of the toughest things to do if you are a foodie. You can only have so much self control. If you do go there, in your brain you know that certain foods need to be avoided as much as possible. You see product A which is bad  for the diet and avoid it even though you love it. Same goes for product B. Then you see product C which is a combination of  product A and product B. That just kills the whole deal. Damn, that should be good. You ask yourself – “Can you even have product A and B together? Why didn’t I think of it before? If I eat that, at least mentally I have an excellent excuse for breaking my diet. ” At this point, the cravings just override all will power.

If you have ever been on a diet, you know what I am talking about. Seriously, how many such foods can you think about. It will differ based on your liking but here is my list – it is a pretty short list but it get to me every time.

  1. Snickers ice cream – Snickers I can avoid. Ice cream also. But the two together most of the time is just too hard
  2. Bholi with Ghee – ahhh, I miss India
  3. Peanut butter and Nutella sandwich – cause for this post. Boy was it good.

I was like Joey in Friends who goes “Jam good, <something> good, Meat – goood”. I had the same epiphany when I looked at the peanut butter and Nutella sandwich. I hope I don’t see it regularly in my office snack shop or my kid is going to see an oversize daddy :).
