Giving In

I am not a big fan of donuts.  Not because I don’t like them, but because if I even take one bit I burp them up all day.  Ick!  Well, I was oddly craving them last week and decided to give into my cravings.  There is a gourmet donut spot that I pass everyday on my way to work so I stopped in. Intuitive eating, right?

Do-Rite Pistachio Meyer Lemon

They had about a dozen flavors to choose from, vegan options, and gluten-free ones too.  The store front is teeny tiny and a good line was forming so I didn’t take anytime to think over the menu and just ordered two that jumped out at me. Pistachio-Meyer Lemon and coconut custard. Intuitive eating, no?

Do-Rite Coconut Custard

I’d love to tell you I took taste of both, but truth be told I ate them both.  Not in one sitting, but certainly in one day.  Intuitive eating, no!  But hey, why train for a marathon if you can’t eat two donuts once in a while.  They were delicious, I liked the cake texture of the pistachio one best.  Best part, I didn’t pay the price all day, not once did they come back up on me.  Uh, but maybe that is actually a bad thing.

    OMG, the pistacchio one looks insulin worthy! Growing up my Dad would buy one apple fritter for himself each week – even though he was diabetic too – he’d say “I have no idea how that got into my car!”

    Have a great Sunday!

      Ha ha, my dad used to bring home swedish fish treats on the train once in awhile and eat most of them on the way home. He had the same story, “I have no idea what happened to the them.”

    Yum, what a treat!
    I found your blog by googling for barley recipes. You’ve got some really great things on here! Could you tell me, on your slow cooker hot apple barley breakfast recipe, are the measurements for all of the spices teaspoons or tablespoons? Thanks!
