Ginger Oh Snap

When I asked my doctor a couple of months ago what natural suggestions there are to curb morning sickness, he recommended "anything ginger".  I love Ginger Ale so that was a no brainer.  I've been enjoying that stuff for months.
 
One day after work, however, when I was feeling particularly bad (it's true that it is NOT just in the mornings), I went to the grocery store across the street from my office to try some Ginger Snaps.

My house is about 20 minutes away from my office/the grocery store.  I'm sure you can see where this is going...
 
I told myself I was going to just eat one serving to see if it helped me feel better.  It was right before dinner, after all.
 
Well that will power lasted all of 60 seconds, or 400 yards out of the grocery store parking lot, whichever came faster.
 
I ended up eating almost the whole bag on my way home.  And the part that I didn't eat ended up in my cup holder, my seat, and my crotch, because the entire bag ripped in half not long after my departure.  It was one of the scarier food episodes I've ever had, with myself.
 
Just the tip of the crumbly iceberg.
 
Needless to say, the Ginger Snaps did not make me feel better.  In fact they made me feel much, much worse.  I couldn't eat dinner that night I felt so sick and ashamed and diabetic.  G'Snaps will definitely go on the list of things I will never, ever eat again.  Along with Diet Mountain Dew.  But that's a whole different story.

Long story short, Ginger Snaps will only make you feel better if you eat a few, not an entire bag.  I assume, I've never done anything in moderation.  I'm an all or nothing kind of beast.
