A few years before I lost weight, someone's dad came to a birthday party I held for my son. I had not thought of this man as fat before, but now he was very thin. He looked great and told me he had found the diet that worked for him. He was happy at his new weight and was not going back.
Later when we cut the cake, this man refused a piece. I said, "Surely you can have a few treats on your new diet." He told me he did not like cake enough to eat it. If he was going to splurge it would be on something he really wanted to eat.
This was a revelation to me. I thought you had to eat birthday cake at a party. Isn't this how it is done? Now that I am thin too, I am on this guy's team. No - I do not need to eat something just because it is there. I am not a cake eater either unless it is chocolate, and so refuse it myself these days.
Dry, hard and tasteless. Who likes these snacks? If they come in a mix, I am picking them out and did not eat them when I was fat either. I sure would never buy a pack of them at any price.
As I think of it, I like nothing sesame except tahini sauce which goes into hummus. I will not eat it on its own. I do not want sesame seeds on my bun, and I do not like the taste of the oil.
If I am going to have a snack, I want those in the top photo on my post. These are in a local restaurant/bakery, and only available at Chinese New Year's, which is almost here. I got to try samples, and they were delicious! Light, fragrant, flavorful, and with very unique tastes. The only trouble is their very high cost, so samples will be all I get this year.
