Three wrapped squares of Lindt 70% cacao : 90 calories. These come in bags of 30 squares, and most of the time I have just one. After my gym workout. So that's thirty calories. Or maybe two: sixty calories. ( I like the 85% too, but haven't seen the bags of 85% squares recently).
So chocolaty. The flavour lingers. Waaay more satisfying than a candy bar. Which has a whole lot more calories, more fat, more sugar, and less food value.
Because the dark chocolate is full of antioxidants, too.
An extra spoonful of plain cocoa powder stirred into a mug of light hot chocolate adds 5 calories. That's all. But really improves the taste.
And how come nobody makes chocolate yogourt? Cocoa and Splenda added to plain Greek yogourt: great stuff!
It's a rare day at my place that goes by without chocolate!
