There are a few simple rules when it comes to quitting sugar according to David Gillespie’s book Sweet Poison, one of them is Party Foods are for Parties. Meaning, eat cake at a party if you want to, even have some lollies, basically if you want to, at a party do it. Or that’s the way I interrupt it. It’s about living life and not becoming o regimented that people stop inviting you to stuff because they feel weird about serving birthday cake at a birthday party. Again, my take on things.

I’ve often been heard to say, party foods are for parties before having dessert or some form of sugar related item {lollies, tarts, chocolate etc}. It occurred to me as I party foods are for parties my way through this road trip holiday that perhaps I might have taken the guideline a little bit too far. I’ve turned it into a free for all. Feeling bloated and sick and¬†headachey¬†and ick was the red flag. I’m glad I’ve taken the time to see.

Holidays are not parties.

Weekends are not parties.

Going out for lunch is not a party.

Parties are parties and party food is for parties.

New rule.

Well, old rule, new again.

Do you ever let things slip a little until it’s a barely recognisable version of the original idea? Or is it just me?
