Like a chocolate bar? Or like hot cocoa? I've heard cacao nibs are AWESOME (gotta go to the health food store or online to get em) and they're just pieces of the cacao bean! At least that's my understanding.
greek yogurt, chobani 0% vanilla is awesome in smoothies! Aladdin smoothie glasses. I love these because I can buy replacement straws without a hassle and they are pretty fun. my stability ball. I have gotten better though my cat still wont be on the floor in case it goes across the room towards her again if I fall off! roasting vegetables. awesome and mrs. dash is super easy for seasoning with a little olive oil. try roasting cauliflower too, unbelievably great. sea salt, olive oil and black pepper make it taste great pesto. I never thought I would eat or like it, let alone make it. its is good stuff either way. super healthy too I also love land o lakes light butter with canola oil. spreadable and you cant taste any difference. bagel thins too. my latest obsession in the mornings or whenever.
This is a long list but these all are favorite things for me on any day.

Check out the facts on this New bread I'm in love with. It doesn't taste all bland, and its soft and good. (unlike most healthy bread)

brown rice tortillas make the best pizza crust. heat 1 side in skillet. Flip. Add 1/4 c. sauce and low fat cheese and toppings. Cover, melts and done. Thin and crunchy, and I am A thick crust lover. Yummy and quick!
I find myself using something called 'black salt' more often these days. It's an Indian salt that somehow tastes like egg - something to do with its sulphur content, not anything to do with egg. My second go-to salt is some variety of sea salt (there are varieties, depending on where a salt comes from...)
I agree, Blue Diamond Original Unsweetened Almond Milk is only 30 calories per 8 oz and higher in calcium than milk. I was surprised to see you have to use it within 7 days of opening. Makes me just want to drink more!
Just in the last few weeks I have discovered Kroger brand Sweet Potato Bites. I roasted them in the oven, but got tired of using my oven (energy) just for that. So, I bought a square two waffle maker griddle today for $10 at Walmart. I put a serving in each side, sprayed with butter spray and locked it to cook. These are the best! Crispy and golden brown on the outside and moist on the inside. My husband also liked them best this way. All for 130 wonderful calories! These are really great on occasion.
Note: I put the bag in the microwave for a couple of minutes to thaw the bites. That way the griddle could press together to cook both sides.
People who talk about being bored - are boring.
There's a brighter day coming...

I mixed together vegan sour cream and non-fat cream cheese - the result tastes weirdly like butter. I added some canola mayonnaise to make it more spreadable (not much) and it's my new favorite spread in a sandwich.

Kale is wonderful either juiced or in salads and sauted in a bit of Extra Virgin organic coconut oil.I read that kale should be massaged before putting in cooked dishes. Releases the flavor and moisture within.

My absolute favorite too. I find Natural Peanut butter that just has peanuts and sea salt. Just 1 sugar for 2 tbl. Target has their own brand of natural peanute butter that is the best. and low priced.
**Homemade Cauliflower Pizza Crust! Yum! **Hard to find but Coconut Milk Coffee Creamer **Wisk up some EVOO and fresh squeezed lemon juice, with a little fresh minced garlic and some chopped basil and I add red pepper flakes but you don't have too- Best Salad Dressing Ever and Good for You!
