Chris Downie, Motivation Expert and SparkPeople Founder
"I'd have to say pepperoni pizza from a small pizza shop near us. I will indulge every now and then in this."
Becky Hand, Registered and Licensed Dietitian
"High quality chocolate and chocolate ice cream (Graeter’s ice cream). I won’t waste the money on the cheap stuff. When I grab high quality chocolate the taste and mouth-feel is sensational! It only takes a little for true satisfaction."
Nancy Howard , Certified Running Coach and Community Moderator
"I love chocolate-milk chocolate and dark chocolate. Each night I allow myself one small square of 70% Lindt Dark Chocolate with 2 Tbps of walnuts. The perfect treat and loaded with lots of anti-oxidants."
Tanya Jolliffe, Healthy Eating Expert and Community Moderator
"Double Stuff Oreos and Reece's Peanut Butter Cups."
Jen Mueller, Fitness Coach and Community Leader
"I love dessert. If I never ate chips or French fries again, that would be okay. But I love cookies, cake- all those bakery goodies. I try not to have them too often, but when I do I make sure it's something I really enjoy. Nothing wrong with treating yourself now and then."
Nicole Nichols, Certified Personal Trainer and Editor
"Sleeping. If I had my way, I'd sleep 9-10 hours every night and take a nap each day. I love sleeping in, waking up without an alarm and stealing 2-3 hourlong naps on the weekend (when I can). For me, sleep is stress relief and relaxation at its finest. I think that I need more than the average person because I am mentally fatigued from working so much and taking on so many projects and obligations outside of work, too. I also have a big sweet tooth. I never met a sweet treat I didn't like, so it's always hard for me to pass them up when they're around."
Denise Tausig, Community Moderator
"Chocolate, but I make room for it in my diet. I find that I have better control if I allow myself to have a small portion more often, rather than just once in a while."
