Got Chocolate?

What would you do if you spent the latter half of your day uncontrollably eating this chocolate bar?

Come home and eat more chocolate of course.

Chocolate Indulgence #1:  Lindt’s A Touch of Sea Salt Dark Chocolate.  What a treat!  I mean, if you can keep yourself form eating half of the bar in one afternoon :P. 

Let me see if I can harness my inner foodie and descibe it to you.  As you bite into it, you think, “Oh, Lindt makes such delightf…  Oh, is that salt?  Man that’s interes…  Oh wow.  This is so rich.”  Haha, as soon as you taste the little flecks of salt, they’re gone as fast as they came.  And then you’re left loving the last few bits of chocolate in your mouth and opening the package back up for another bite.  Dangerous ;).

Chocolate Indulgence #2: chocolate pudding.  But this chocolate pudding has a healthy twist to it and if you haven’t seen it before, be prepared to be blown away.  That is, if you’re brave enough to try it!

The Ingredients

It’s Chocolate Avocado Banana Pudding from Ashley over at Edible Perspective!  As you can see I subbed Almond Milk for coconut milk and agave nectar for the brown rice syrup (and I definitely used 2 tablespoons!). 

I promise you can’t taste the avocado (just adds creaminess) and the banana flavor is there, but not the banana texture (which I really dislike).  Just throw it all into the food processor and behold!

Pudding!!

Creamy chocolatey goodness that will undoubtedly take you back to pudding cups and recess!

So to recap here.  Chocolate binges happen to all of us :D, and one chocolate filled afternoon does not a body wreck.  There’s no reason to crawl into a corner and eat a deep fried Snickers bar.  Just relish in it and take it for what it is!  Indulgences are part of a healthy diet, so when you’ve regained your composure, just eat some chocolate covered veggies for good measure and move on ;).

And if you have a dog as cute as this one, take her for a run.  You’ll both be glad you did!

Kaya-face

Hopefully, I’ll post again tonight after my chocolate covered veggies and 4 mile run for my 10k this weekend.
