Not to snack while I cook!
I am the primary cook for my entire family, I do about 4 dinner meals in a day (healthy ones for me that the family turn their noses up at, one "kiddy" meal for my little boy, still healthy :lol: yay! one for my parents, one for my ever fussy and picky sister) lunch for my son and I, and morning and afternoon tea, sometimes dessert, or cakey things and I bake bread each morning. Well! With all this cooking (usually about 2-1/2 hours spread ou through the day, in total) I realised yesterday exactly how much I eat while I am cooking. I have to taste everything. I season it, I taste it again. Then add another ingredient, taste it again. I nibble on leftover ingredients (like too much cheese or raisins) I check to see that everyone would like how it tastes, and if I get a little pudding or batter on my finger...... I cant resist! ...... I think in a day, this would probably add up to another entire meal :shock: ..... so I have bought some sugarfree chewy, and will try to just drink water and chew while I cook, or eat fruit.
So! That's my pledge, NO MORE PICKING!!! :D xx

yeha its amazing how much you can consume whilst cooking. i always keep a bottle of wate rin the kitchen with me, that way it ensures i also have smaller portions at dinner time because im not as hungry.

Excellent idea, it is easy to just pick and not even realise. Good pledge and good luck.
