If a fruit is covered in dark chocolate, the fruit wins out and you’re eating a health food right?
I was going to write a post about heart health, my heart health, but that is too daunting. Apparently, I’m not ready. I am ready, however, to talk about
chocolate yummy health foods and how you can cover up the evidence of consumption from suspecting spouses who are trying to fulfill their appointed (by yours truly) role of making you accountable for your chocolate intake.
At my former place of employment there were candy dishes everywhere. Everywhere. Loads of crap candy, and I ate it by the handful. It is hardly surprising that I didn’t take the pregnancy weight off, but now I am no longer bombarded by temptation I’m trying to ease myself into a more reasonable relationship with chocolate. Enter in Trader Joe’s dark chocolate covered pomegranate seeds. Fruit and dark chocolate. I think I might be onto something, although I’m not losing weight despite less chocolate and more exercise. Perhaps the dark chocolate covered fruit is only a health food if, as a friend says,
served with a glass of red wine for the antioxidant triple threat
Obviously, that is what I’m doing wrong. Must drink more red wine.
Talking about ways to love the dark chocolate? Dark chocolate covered Altoids. Suck off the chocolate and then the sharp bite of the Altoid. No one will ever know that you were eating chocolate, and if no one knows does it count?
That is it for tonight’s chocolate interlude. If only there was some chocolate in the house.
