Okay, I've had about all the lettuce I can stand. What is there about dieting that makes you crave chocolate? I'd been so good all last week. Salad with grilled chicken for lunch. Fruit, grilled meats and steamed veggies. Yum. Well unless you spell yum B-O-R-I-N-G. By Friday I was desperate. I looked at Dave and said, "I'm bad. I want candy." He said, "You're not bad unless you GET candy. Come on, let's go get some." LOL He was just as bored with what we've been eating as I was.
So we go to CVS down the street. I have in mind a big bag of my favorite Brach's chocolate covered almonds. Nada. They don't have any. Then I start thinking I'll just get a small candy bar. As I'm browsing the candy aisle I spy this small bar of some kind of dark chocolate I've never seen. It's called Lindt's I think. 70% cocoa it says. Hey, that's suppposed to be GOOD for you. Antioxidants and all that. By now I'm feeling virutous. I'm going to be good. This thing has only 11 grams of carbs. Dave, on the other hand, gets a whole pack of small Almond Joy bars.
We go home with our treasure. I eagerly unwrap my chocolate and take a bite. Not bad I tell myself. Who am I kidding? It's a little like eating cocoa right from the cupboard. Not enough sugar. By the end of the bar, I tell Dave it's not that great. He offers me one of his little Almond Joy bars and I scarf it down. Ah, now THAT'S chocolate.
Not to diss Lindt's bar but if I'm going to be bad, I want to enjoy it!
