I've known many people who are addicted to one thing or another; tobacco, alcohol, prescription drugs and even caffeine. (I thought that I might have an addiction to chocolate, but I can go several hours without it..so...I must be OK, right?) I would look at these people with a feeling of deep sorrow for their bondage and maybe, just maybe, a self-righteous feeling that I didn't have their problem.
I discovered this drink at Costco that reminds me of Crystal Light. It has no sugar, 3 grams of fiber and 15 calories a serving. I thought it would be good to take to work. Every morning I get a large plastic water bottle, fill it with ice and water and add a packet of the powder.
I didn't realize how much I depended on this drink until the morning I got up, made it, then forgot to grab it.
A few blocks from work, I glanced lovingly down at the cup holder in my car and THAT'S when I realized I had forgotten it on the kitchen counter! My mouth got dry, my throat closed off, my heart raced and I started to sweat! What was I going to do? I thought of turning around, going back home to get it, and being a half hour late for work - but with tears running down my face, (a slight exaggeration) I forged ahead, knowing that I wouldn't survive the day without it!
Is it possible to be addicted to fiber? Maybe it's time to read the fine print on the box!
Do you have an addiction you want to confess? I hear it's good for the soul!
