Is this the start of the next week? Can I have WW Peanut Noodles tonight? I'm making it for the block picnic and it's the only food I'll let myself eat.

Nell. I have a recipe for cheese doodles: put about 15 in a bowl.....do not add anything else. Slowly take one at a time from the bowl and make sure you take 3 bites to finish one doodle. Continue until all doodles are gone and drink LOTS of water.

Cheese Doodles are one of my electric foods: the desire to keep eating them is shocking. When I was standing in line to vote one year, I smelled them on a little kid who had them in his pocket. I used to eat them until my teeth squeaked. I haven't had one in many many years, it's easy to just stay away. I've never seen a recipe that included Cheese Doodles.

This is very personal. I keep a pack of cigarettes on my shelf (of course they must be stale now) to remind myself that I beat the Nicodemon. Mind over matter. I smile every time I look at it and it makes me feel good about myself.

Oh, I love Shirley Booth. I need to look for that movie. Thanks, Nell.

I laughed when I opened my email. I had a $10 coupon from nuts.com. I deleted it. They wouldn't come until next week, but nuts are such a large temptation for me! Better not to get them!

I don't tempt myself, I get enough temptation out there in the general world. God may Lead Me Not Into Temptation, but I can't expect Him to help me from temptation I've provided for myself.

There is an old movie, Come Back Little Sheba, with Burt Lancaster and Shirley Booth, where Burt's character is a recovering alcoholic who kept a bottle in the kitchen to prove he didn't need it. Of course, one day he did. It's a wonderful movie, it was Shirley Booth's first movie role and she won the Oscar for Best Actress that year (1952?). If you ever want to see a good movie that has a happy ending but you need an entire box of Kleenex (or two) to watch it, I recommend that one.

Cathy, you could also make it a game and test your willpower... Pick then out and put them in a baggy. Write on the baggy: my reward, with the day you are allowing yourself to eat them. Putting them in the garbage disposal is admitting defeat...

Cathy, which meal service? My next door neighbor is now an avid fan of Blue Apron. If you pick out the almonds, put them down the disposal or that's all you'll think about until next week. It's not like they are an expensive, rare food, but your brain laser will think they are.

Me either, Veroinique. Thanks for letting me know. As for addiction, I understand. When PB2 first came out, it could only be ordered directly from the farm in Tifton, GA. I got it snappy quick. The sugar in it had me going back to the jar over and over and over again. At the time, it was only the plain variety. It was wonderful in Greek yogurt! It took me a while to realize it was the sugar that was twanging my trigger! I've tried it a couple of times since, within the last 2 months even, and still it starts my cravings up like a jet plane. Sugar is not my friend.

Isn't it amazing how we find ourselves feeding our faces with the things that we think will taste good, the things that look good? It's rare that most people think about what their bodies want, but what their heads or eyes want.

Most of you know that I subscribe to a meal service. One of my meals has sliced almonds later this week. I'll have to decide to pick them out or pay the quarter. Right now, I'm saying pick them out. Wonder what I'll say when I'm face to face with those sliced almonds?

Nell. I am glad you only sniff the crayons and don't eat them.

Oh Katrina, I didn't realize maca is a nut. Look at all we learn on these challenges!

Question about your powdered peanut butter: Do you have a brand that does not have sugar in it? Any brand I've ever used has sugar and I try to avoid processed sugar as much as possible. I tend to have more cravings when I eat sugar.

Hope the maca helps balance your hormones. :)

This morning I remembered this just in time. I don't eat much in the way of nuts, but I realized I do put powdered peanut butter in my post-run smoothie. Today I left it out.

However, I finally found my maca powder. I added some of that. I wonder - is Maca a nut? Guess I should look that up. lol.

UPDATE: oops. I guess it is. Oh well. I want to add this to my smoothies to see if it has the positive effect on horomone balance that it claims. I could sure use some hormonal balance these days.

I am not much of a nut eater, so this one will be easy for me. I love peanut butter, but haven't eaten it in a long time. I'll open the jar and smell it, that's enough. I love the smell of crayons, too, and I'll sniff the box but won't eat any.

If you are looking to raise money, make coffee the weekly no-no. I'd have to skip the quarters and go straight to the dollar bills.

No nut butters either. emoticon

Saturday night, I was craving nuts. Well, craving may be the wrong word. My head wanted them, not my body. Thankfully, there were none in the house! And, I was already in the bed so going to the store was out. Thank goodness! Now that we have nuts as our no-no food, the desire is gone. I know that I don't want to put a quarter ... more like $4 in a jar! I can wait. It's not forever!

I can do this. Like Mom, I was thinking just nuts-ie a handful of nuts. I'll go with either and can say no for one week with nut butters as well.

Hmmm. No nuts. I'm in. I don't eat nuts often, but I do use nut flours in baking. So I'll avoid eating any of those this week.

I thought it just meant nuts.......but it means anything made with nuts like butters too? Glad Veronique made that statement.

This week, our no-no food is NUTS!

No, there is nothing wrong with nuts at all. Eat them in an appropriate proportion and they are just fine. But, this week, if you eat nuts, put a quarter in your No-no Food jar. Put in a quarter every single time you eat nuts.

Next week, we'll have a different no-no food and you can have nuts again. But, this week, we're strengthening our "NO" muscle! Just say NO to the nuts for one week!

If you eat our no-no food, please post and let us know.

If you want to eat our no-no food but don't, please post and let us know. We'd like to celebrate with you!

Questions? Please ask!
