chocolate

Happy Easter.

Chocolate.

It’s everywhere!

Easter eggs. Easter bunnies. Easter bilbies.

White chocolate. Milk chocolate. Dark chocolate.

It’s hard to escape and even harder to resist. And at Easter-time its all wrapped up in shiny, colourful, very pretty foil.

Tantalising you. Teasing you. Tempting you.

And I’ve always found it frustratingly hard to stop at just one chocolate. I suppose that was the sugar addiction kicking-in.

If I started the day with sugar I would crave it the rest of the day.

I’m now well aware that the only way to stay off the stuff is to go cold-turkey. Not just give it up for a day, a week or even the 40 days of Lent. But simply give it up. Period.

Not an easy thing to do I know. But I can tell you it is definitely worth it.

And having done so I am not looking back!

  11. TELL ME ABOUT IT! I could live out of chocolate if I could haha, but I sure can’t and keeping 100% away from it is not a reality for me even though I’ve tried. I think that I have managed to eat it in moderation and I also think that for me, it is much more sane than complete withdrawal. I admire you for keeping away from it! I’m sure it is a very hard thing to do!!! But seeing other people achieving it, gives me hope πŸ™‚
    Love, Erika

  12. You’d be surprised. I felt the same way before I decided to go “cold turkey”. And it doesn’t actually mean you give up sweet things. I actually find fruit and vegetables and milk all taste a lot sweeter now.

    But it’s OK to use glucose and similar sugar (non fructose, non artificial) substitutes in your cooking. So chocolate can be eaten – you just have to make it without sucrose (as it is half-fructose).

    Over the coming months I intend to post recipes doing just this πŸ™‚

    Cheers, Kim*
