Looks Like a Cupcake! But it’s Much Less Fattening!

The minute I saw this photo on my screen, it reminded me of dessert. It made me think of the fancy birthday cakes I would receive when I was little. Where every detail in sugar and frosting tempted, but I hated to start eating them. It looks like a cupcake, someone’s painstaking effort to tempt me. Fortunately, it’s a water lily. All beauty and no calories. Hopefully, this year in school, when tempting foods appear for any reason possible – it’s Thursday, we need doughnuts. It’s Monday, we need chocolate. I forgot my laptop – I want a cookie; I’ll take a step back and feel able to savor the beauty and pass on the treat. I know it’s wishful thinking, but I have to start somewhere.
