NaPoWriMo: Sweet, Bitter Nonnet

I’m an emotional eater, like a lot of folks, and have often turned to a “treat” for comfort during stressful times. With a few health issues lately, and the early stages of a recovery plan, I’ve made drastic changes to my diet. One of these thing was cutting refined sugars, and I’d been doing well–until today. Yesterday, I enjoyed a couple of chocolate hedgehogs, and today a friend brought a dessert tart for lunch, a s’mores tart complete with toasted marshmallow. I certainly wasn’t going to pass that up, and enjoyed it tremendously.
Then, something happened, something between taste buds and gastric juices. My body let me know, in no uncertain terms, that me and sugar were over. So over, that in T-Swift’s parlance, we are never ever getting back together. Ever.
My sweet comfort has bitterly betrayed me, and I don’t forgive easily.


Sweet caress of sugar, lovingly
enveloped by lascivious
tongue and moved to soul centre
warm internal embrace
becomes venomous
oozing toxin
a harpy’s

      1. It does. When my son was a baby I told the pediatrician that he eats all the fruits but hasn’t warmed up to the veggies – she says that’s how it is. I think I read or heard on the radio somewhere about it.

      2. I would flippantly argue that indicates that your son is a genius πŸ™‚ Once NaPoWriMo is over, I’m going to be doing a lot of diet research and perhaps sharing some of it, as the blog will take a more personal turn.

      1. It is a blessing. I am like a junkie. I managed to give it up in my tea by buying better tea, but every now and then I just need a sweet. Well more now than then.


      2. I have a separate dessert stomach that’s going to be pretty lonely! I did eat, prior to this episode, a small piece of very dark chocolate that had no effect, so I’ll tame the sweet tiger with that.
        And yeah I sure do hear you about “more now than then” πŸ˜‰
