Got a Food Craving? Chocolate Is Mine
I got a food craving today for chocolate cupcake with creamy chocolate butter icing. I can’t eat it even if I made it as I have a problem eating gluten. But this nutritionist has a great idea with her Almond Hot Chocolate, that would satisfy my chocolate craving without it being gluten or loaded with fat and calories. Read her article below for more tips…
“How do these food pros indulge when a craving strikes? Get inspired by their healthy snack ideas.
I take two tasting squares of 70 percent dark chocolate and melt them with 2 Tbsp of hot water. Then I add 1 cup of warm unsweetened vanilla almond milk, ¼ tsp pure organic vanilla extract, and a dash of ground cinnamon. My ritual is to always use my favorite mug, take it out on my balcony, and slowly savor every sip while I enjoy some “me” time. Each of the plant-based ingredients is chock full of anti-aging, disease-fighting antioxidants, and the dark chocolate also provides stress-busting magnesium.
