Late Post, Splenda Sensitivity

This is going to be quick because:

1. it’s getting late and I’m tired  :)

2. My stomach is all topsy turvy and I think I know why.

 

I hope you try that cinnamon bread recipe! It’s so good. I had two of my coworkers try it today and they both approved of it. Plus, Nick liked it and he’s the best taste tester on healthy versions.

 

I was pretty hungry this afternoon, so I got into this green smoothie around 3:30 or so

This one had about 2 cups of kale (I always spell it kups of kale – weird, huh?), 1 cup milk, 1/2 banana, and some PB2 (courtesy of Lindsay). Good.

Dinner tonight was one of our fancy eating-at-my-desk dinners since we had group after work. At least it tasted good!

We both had leftovers of the Smoky Shepherd’s Pie from Sunday night – I think it was even better tonight – it didn’t look as pretty, but it was good. I kept hitting little pockets of the smoked cheddar cheese in the mashed potatoes  :)

After dinner, we drove over to the mall to burn a little time before group started. Don’t you hate when you have some stuff in mind that you want and then it just doesn’t fit right? I had seen some cute stuff at the Gap a few weekends ago, so I went back tonight. Most of it was on sale, but nothing fit or felt right. Oh well – I guess I saved some money?

Since we still had a few minutes (and we both wanted a treat), we went into Ben & Jerry’s and I got this beauty:

This is a small Vanilla Fudge Chip, and is made with Splenda. Oh, it tasted good, but I just don’t think I can handle artificial sweeteners anymore. My stomach has been all weird since I ate it. *Note to self: remember this next time to save yourself from tummy weirdness!

I hope you all had a great day – I’m so glad tomorrow is hump day!

See ya for breakfast   :)

  1. yum ice cream! I just don’t like the taste of Splenda, it tastes so artificial to me! Like those Dannon Light N Fit yogurts? I hate them! hahah

  2. Awwwh, sorry about the artificial sweetners!

  3. I wish treats could be natural! Why do they have to add so many artificial sweeteners and flavorings to ice cream, candy and other treats? :( I don’t like the taste of artificial sweeteners, it grosses me out. I’ve never liked the taste of diet coke, thank goodness because that has kept me from drinking it and getting addicted. Phew!

  4. Splenda does that to me too!! Isn’t it nice that we can pinpoint that, though? When I was younger I used to eat so much junk that I couldn’t tell what agreed with me and what didn’t . . .
