Re: I'm trying to convince myself to give up alcohol for Lent
Carbs are a big weakness of mine as well. I love crusty, hearty bread. I really have to give pause for thought when it comes to sandwiches, buns, dinner rolls, etc. Even though I love bread, I consistently carbo crash after eating it.
I used to eat a lot more pasta too, but in the last 1.5 years I've had a pasta dish maybe 3 times. And coming from a 50% Mediterranean bloodline, that's almost a sacrilege.
