Chocolatey goodness… there’s nothing better. Except if you are paleo then it’s strictly rice malt syrup and xylitol for you.
Dear Sugar Quitters,
It’s not quite the same is it? Easter.
Do you miss it? Oh I know on the surface your answer is no. Of COURSE not. You feel better than ever.
“You don’t miss out you know,” you tell me. There is always that avocado and cacao “mousse” with just-a-pinch of rice malt syrup. So yum.
Or the coconut oil and butter cacao “cake” with a yummy touch of xylitol (you just have to watch the “intestinal gas” you get as a side effect).
Come on, you HAVE to admit Easter isn’t quite the same is it?
It’s a war with your willpower as your nostrils are seduced by the sweet smell of chocolate wafting from colleagues’ desks. You literally hear every teeny-tiny tear of that foil wrapper being slowly stripped off, don’t you?
Concentrate on your chicken and kale soup.
Do you remember the days of sliding one of those mini eggs under your tongue and allowing it to melt sensuously into your taste buds? Mmmmmm.
Australian are expected to spend $220 million on chocolate this Easter, in fact we’re one of the world’s biggest consumers of choccie eggs – with a per capita consumption of about 20 each.
We indulge over Easter because of one simple reason: it’s fun. Oh, and it tastes pretty damn terrific too. And sugar deniers we have an important message for you…
YOU CAN EAT CHOCOLATE IN MODERATION, TOO.
