fruit and nuts are both fine to have in moderation with this woe, but dried fruits are super-concentrated sugar. i mostly have berries, plus peaches and nectarines in-season and local. apples and pears are too sweet for me now.
if certain foods are sending you spiraling down a rabbit hole of excess you need to stop eating them entirely. i can't keep nut butter in the house or i will devour it with a spoon until i am sick. is it primal? sure. but it's like heroin for me.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
