Oh $#*%! I Had Chocolate!

Day 66

One of my stocking stuffers this past Christmas was a bag of Lindor Truffles. Over the course of the week between Christmas and New Year’s, I devoured all 45 pieces that the shiny crimson bag contained. I was munching on them while watching movies at home, driving in the car and etc.

I got them for Christmas—what was I supposed to do, throw them out?!

I have heard horror stories of unhealthy vegetarians. These are usually people that, even though they have eliminated all meat from their diets, still eat unhealthy by devouring tons of junk food.

Why give up meat to be healthier if you still have other unhealthy eating habits you still cling to? Going meatless was also an excuse for me to look at what else I eat and to reflect upon unhealthy eating habits I’ve had in the past. A couple of examples I will write about in this space soon.

I think it’s okay to please your sweet tooth every now and then but not in regular and huge amounts. My holiday chocolate binge was an exception and not the rule.

And what a sweet exception it was.

Talk to you soon!

  1. I hope you know that chocolate contains milk, and is thus not very vegan. Or did you change your mind and decide to eat dairy again?

  2. Of course I know that! That why it said, "milk chocolate" on the bag, lol!

    I didn't change my mind and decide to eat dairy again because I ate the chocolate BEFORE January 1st, which was the day I decided to expand the meatless diet to a vegan one.

    Sorry for any confusion.
