Oops, I counted my chickens before they hatched. Fail today! I didn't eat nearly enough for breakfast and lunch, and after dinner I had a couple peanut bars and a bunch of grapes. 😫

I had an 11 day streak too! Oh well, starting over again and looking forward to tomorrow. 😀

Weird, I think I lost my last post. :) Yeah, I agree, I find them so unsatisfying. If the leftovers are a complete wholesome meal, it's fine. It's when you have to supplement it with random snacks and other leftovers when it's regrettable!

S day dessert ideas for a family of four

Any dessert ideas for an S day that we could make at home, and would let a family of four (two kids 8 and 4) indulge in one reasonable / non-regrettable serving, (no leftovers)?

Thinking small batch cookies.. maybe. :D

Random leftovers lunch though :?
Those kind of meals are so unsatisfying! I've found that behavior was naturally correcting - I avoided that happening too often - it was a built-in response to the negative feeling after that kind of meal.
