I had a gigantic sugar craving yesterday. I went through all my cupboards, the refrigerator, and the freezer to no avail. No sugar-alternative could satisfy my sweet tooth. I looked at Jeff's chocolate chip cookie dough with envy. Why were the cupboards full of dark chocolate covered almonds and chocolate coated pretzels and organic chocolate bars? I knew I wouldn't give in but I felt angry every time I looked at those foods because I wanted them so badly. Jeff must have heard me running around the kitchen in a frenzy because he yells, "Take a giant bite of cottage cheese!" In my vulnerability I didn't even think about it. I just did as I was told. I took the biggest spoon I have and filled it with organic, non-fat cottage cheese from Trader Joe's. As soon as I had finished it, I instantly felt better. My craving disappeared. It was so weird.
