Dream Snacking

Just thought I'd share something strange but cool happening to me!!

My biggest weakness in terms of sinful foods might be cupcakes. I refrain well, but when I cave they are generally my go to.

I've been very good for the most part and am careful not to make binging a habit. (I did go out on a date day before yesterday and planned to eat out). However this doesn't mean I don't miss the foods.

Twice in the last week I've dreamt about eating cupcakes! My dreams are lucid though, so I get the taste and texture. It's very enjoyable. When I wake up I remember my non-existent snacking -- which also means the calories are non-existent! I don't feel like I wanna jump out of bed and get cupcakes either. I feel more like I got a treat and don't have to account for it.

Sorry if it's weird! I usually have nightmares so it's nice my subconscious is giving me sweets instead. ^^

    I need to learn how to dream about food instead of sex all the time!

    Seriously wanting some mac & cheese, if I could have a dream version I wouldn't have to pay the migraine price!

    I had a dream I had a couple boxes of donuts and I was taking them away to give to someone else. I was all like "let's just get these out of here" in my dream.

    I've had a few dreams of this sort...but without any of the satisfaction and LOTS of guilt. Usually I am eating some sort of carb filled junk food in my dream, and then suddenly I think, "Wait! I'm not supposed to be eating this! Noooooooo!!!!" :#:#:#

    I'm often aware I'm dreaming so it's okay. Or the fact Im not supposed to eat my weight in sugar doesn't occur to me.

    Admittedly, I've never made a regular German chocolate cake nor eaten one. So I had to google it. In my searching, I came across this TrimHealthyMomma blogger who had already perfected this! You could easily just adjust the bake time and use a cupcake pan.

    So, I frosted them and ate one. It wasn't as dry as I would have liked, and to be honest, I think I may have over done the sweet. But I tend to like things on the less sweet side. The pictures look a little gray on the inside, maybe next time I'll add some yellow food dye. The outside looked so yellow and beautiful that I was surprised and disappointed that the inside wasn't as beautiful. The frosting I added just the tiniest amount of yellow dye to. It made a pretty Easter yellow. I'll write down my full review and recipe after my family dinner party.
