Substitutes won’t Suffice

Ever wander around the kitchen knowing there was something yummy to be had, but trying to avoid it?  For example, I might really want one of those chocolate chip cookies I baked for the kids (Ha! Really? For the kids?), but I might eat other things instead because I presume them to be “better” for me.  So I have a piece of fruit, a piece of cheese, a couple of pretzels, a handful of nuts, and I keep going like this!  The reason I do is because I’m clearly just not satisfied.  All I ever wanted was the cookie.  These other little snacks, adding up their calories along the way, never quite do the job of appeasing my sweet tooth.  And of course, I’m sure you all know, I end up eating the cookie in the end.

So I ask, why go the circuitous route?  Why not just go for that which you seek and save yourself the time and struggle of avoiding what you really love, exactly what will truly “fill you up.”  Substitutes just won’t suffice!

Warmly,  Laurie
