So I was REALLY craving chocolate today and I figured since I’ve had 12 solid sugar free days, I was gonna treat myself. Most of my sugar cravings are gone (I even turned down free pizza, cookies, and hot cocoa at a meeting the other day!), but I still really want chocolate.
I’ve been depriving myself lately so I decided, rather than go on a binge, I would allow myself a little something.
If you haven’t already tried them, may I introduce Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Honey Mints!
These tasty little guys are DELICIOUS (especially if you love really bitter chocolate like I do) and only have three ingredients: chocolate liquor, honey, and peppermint oil.
Now, normally on this little no sugar journey I’m going on I would not eat honey, but to keep myself from eating something with refined sugar I’m willing to eat a little honey. I’ve learned in the past that complete deprivation from the foods you enjoy can end badly, It’s better for me to eat 140 calories of something containing honey to keep me on track than binge on something worse.
