I am trying something a little different to break my plateau and it seems to be working. I am eating no white bread....well, no flour at all. I am trying to stay away from Gluten as much as possible, too. I am also trying to keep my carbs low on the days I do not exercise at the university. It seems to be working....slowly but surely. But, boy do I miss my chocolate.
Today in the email we got something from Chef Meg in our email. It was a recipe for Stepf's BEST Choco-Almond Butter. I have been eating Almonds or Cashews as a snack and they are getting truly boring. Then I got to thinking after reading that recipe, why not just cover them with chocolate? The nutritional data would be about the same. So I tried it. And I got a recipe using the same ingredients and just covering the nuts with the chocolate and I got 10 nuts to a serving for about the same nutritional values! And ten chocolate covered almonds is a pretty good sized serving. I can stretch that out over a whole afternoon or evening. And I get my chocolate, too!!!!
Let me know what you think.
