That is so interesting, Lady M. Your body was actually craving the good fat that you had forgotten to eat for lunch. It would have gotten plenty of fat from the chips, but no real nutrition. So happy you were able to resist the chips and figure out why the urge to binge had returned.
I agree with you and Harriet about the white potatoes having enough nutritional benefits to merit a place in our diets. And having them with protein, fiber from vegetables, and some fat makes a big difference in the way they affect blood sugar levels.
I meant to mention that I watched the video of the two ladies talking about making salad dressings. Well, I watched a few minutes of it before I got restless and had to go on to something else....(I don't do well with videos usually.....short attention span or something...) Anyway, i was able to tweak the recipe for the dressing I have been making for years (which I got from Bill Rodgers, a marathoner) and eliminated most of the fat. It still tastes as good and I get fat in my lunch salad from avocados, olives, and a few almonds.
It's good to see so many checking in and sharing all their successes.
