I have Linda's Coconut Cream Pie slated for today, and I don't think it's denial at all. I've never had an overactive sweet tooth, but I enjoy sweets now & again. If they don't mess up my BG, why not have them? When I first met the old woodchopper, he insisted he had to "suffer" when dieting. I thought it was hogwash then, and I still think it's hogwash. Don't cheat, but use the components we CAN eat, and make delicious nutritious desserts - by all means!
