I try to only have treats that I can control myself with. I feel like if I can't control myself around a food (and for me this is true with almost anything wheat based and some dairy stuff) then I have a problem with that food (ie, food addiction) and I need to learn how to live my life without it. I have come to this conclusion after many years of trying control the foods that I want to have so bad I could scream. The thing is that even if I manage to control for a little while, it keeps the whole screaming part alive in my but if I abstain, that dies down to a more tolerable level. And the control never lasts for very long. It's like trying to be a social heroin user after spending my life as a junkie.
So, lately, my treats have been dark chocolate, natural peanut butter mixed w a packet of truvia and some salt, and cinnamon pork rinds.
