Instead of reaching for a Milky Way or other unhealthy treat, I keep Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips on hand. I allow myself 1 serving per day. I will sprinkle a tablespoon on protein pancakes, mix them with yogurt, or just treat myself to a few chips. This way I gain the added health benefits of dark chocolate without going overboard.

If you're like me then ice cream is one of your biggest weaknesses. After a meal I crave something cold and sweet. I've found that frozen yogurt is a good alternative.... as in, take your Dannon and stick it in the freezer. It comes out rock hard but after about 30 seconds in the microwave it breaks up enough to get a spoon through it. Even better is GoGurt, if you have it, it's like eating a creamy otter pop. You can also make your own popcycles, all you need is a mold and some sticks!
Gotta love a completely guilt free dessert!
I found that you can add one tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa to your oatmeal with 2 pkg of truvia. Throw it in the microwave and watch a hot, chocolate dessert evolve. Free of guilt, fat free ,sodium free and sugar free. FREE, FREE,FREE. Try it for breakfast or snak too. Yummy!!
