Crazy spicing.
« on: May 20, 2009, 07:12:24 PM »

Who here does crazy spicing? How do you find it in terms of effectiveness?

I just bought the latest edition of the book (lost my first edition, and since I'm starting SLD again after a break, I felt it was appropriate) and was inspired to try it for extra credit as I've felt a lot of 'taste hunger' lately (though the ELOO still does a beautiful job of reducing my appetite). This is only my second day of crazy spicing all my regular food (including coffee, tea, soup, sweets etc) but I'm finding that it gives me that bit of extra psychological AS I need to avoid snacking for taste (rather than hunger). If I have something little, but crazy spice it, I find I don't want any more. I even stopped eating crazy spiced (sugarless; trying to avoid most refined carbs) ice cream and chocolate after two bites!

It's only day two of crazy spicing my regular foods for me, but I want to let people know how effective it can be. Several of the combinations I tried were unpleasant; this put me off finishing the dish. But some tasted quite good (very small serve of sugarless vanilla ice cream with three flavour essences and spices). However, despite finding the new flavours delicious, I did not find them moreish in the way that I usually find sweet, delicious foods difficult to stop eating.

Yes, I practice CS.   My breakfast almost every morning consists of Crazy Spiced Eggs.  Also, I almost always 'twist' the flavor of normally-prepared food.  Here is where I discuss my success with CS:

Thanks, flickad, that's great to know!

Crazy-spiced ice cream is an interesting idea.

Today I combined crazy spicing and new foods in my evening meal. I'd shopped in some ethnic stores prior and had crazy spiced soup including a Vietnamese vegetable I'd never before tried. Dessert was sugarless jelly with an unfamiliar Indian yogurt, and I then cleansed my palate with two sugarless chews in an unfamiliar flavour. This light meal left me feeling extremely satisfied. Not so long ago, this would have just been a light snack for me at best.
