Yogurt Delight

I spend a good deal of time fasting nowadays. In a typical week I fast Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 15-24 hours each day. It's not hard to do, and honestly I appreciate not having to concern myself with food. I don't have to think about what I should eat, or what I want to eat. I don't have to consider the nutrients in what I'm thinking about eating, or the amount. I certainly don't need to keep track of anything. Saturday, Sunday and Monday are more of a challenge. I tend to eat, frequently. I suspect the problem is that food is readily available (it's just a few steps away in the refrigerator whereas when I'm at work I typically do not have food available).

I try to wait to eat until 6:00 pm on the days I'm home, but so far that has been unattainable. I also have the problem of once I start eating, I continue eat. Frequently. I haven't quite figured out how to succeed, and I suspect the problem is habit more than anything. I have given in to eating frequently so often on the weekends, that it has become habit. I need to strengthen my habit of not giving in to eating so frequently!

I have a few favorites for my weekend eating, and one is pictured above. It is very simple, but quite delicious. I hope you will find it to your liking. :0)
