I have made through my 21 days without processed sugar! And it has taught me nothing! Once my time was up, I immediately began eating chocolate as if it were another food group. In my defense, I did have to conduct a chocolate tasting for the class I’m taking. It simply couldn’t be avoided (but I may have wallowed in it just a little—it’s been a long 3 weeks of having to study chocolate without being able to taste any). One of my tasters caught me overindulging in the milk chocolate and called me on it. What can I say? Cacao Barry’s Lactee Superieure really is a superior milk chocolate. It’s dangerously yummy.
Life without chocolate tasted like deprivation to me, so perhaps I have learned something after all. I had a tough time restraining myself from devouring my entire box of Valor chocolate-covered almonds, but I took a few out at a time and put the box away. The almonds are big and rich, and the chocolate coating is practically plump. It’s a marvelous treat, but when I started to go back for seconds, I realized that I was still hungry and ate more lunch instead. Once in a while, I think I might grow up after all.
Then I seriously consider having kettlecorn for dinner, and I think maybe not.
