Cough Drops....Your Best Friend And You Didn'T Even Know It.

This Sparked Me!

It happens to us all. A craving hits. You can't seem to stop yourself from eating whatever unhealthy food you think you "need". My solution? Cough drops. Pop a menthol cough drop in your mouth. Trust me when I say NOTHING tastes good following a cough drop. I use this at parties as well. I'll eat the healthiest things I can put on my plate and when I'm done, pop in a cough drop. It usually does the trick. I hope it works for you as well.

    Thanks for that info I have a dinner party this week . The aperatif time is my downfall with all the tempting hors d'oeuvres. After one glass of wine I will pop a cough drop and focus on good conversation with friends. BINGO! emoticon
