Another gray day, and for the first time, I am kind of struggling with something to write about. I have lots of ideas but none particularly grab my attention…today. So I started flipping through journals and past devotional talks I have given. There’s actually some surprising material there (if I may say so). I have faced a lot of fears in my life, but posting some of that material is making me nervous…and I’m not sure why. I certainly have no problem with being completely open (warts and all)! I keep revisiting the purpose of this blog as well, and I haven’t received many comments (that’s not a criticism) to know what interests others…I’m writing for me and I’m loving it…but I still struggle with wanting others to love it too. I think that desire for approval has faded as I’ve gotten older, but obviously it’s not gone yet!
So…let’s keep it light today! There’s enough cloud cover outside (and inside too), and I’d rather laugh than cry! In fact, I have a sign in my kitchen that says “My soul’s had enough chicken soup…I want chocolate”!
Chocolate….Something to Consider When Planning Your Daily Diet!
Chocolate is a Vegetable: Chocolate is derived from cocoa beans. Bean=vegetable. Sugar is derived from either sugar Cane or sugar Beets. Both are plants, which places them in the vegetable category. Thus, chocolate is a vegetable.
To go one step further, chocolate candy bars also contain milk, which is dairy. So candy bars are a health food.
Chocolate-covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.
If you’ve got melted chocolate all over your hands, you’re eating it too slowly.
Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It’ll take the edge off your appetite and you’ll eat less.
Eating equal amounts of dark chocolate and white chocolate means you have a balanced diet. They counteract each other.
Chocolate has many preservatives…preservatives make you look younger.
A nice box of chocolates can provide your daily intake of calories in one shot? Isn’t that handy?
If not for chocolate, there would be no need for control top pantyhose. An entire garment industry would be devastated. We can’t let that happen.
Remember: “stressed” spelled backwards is “desserts”.
