There are many times during the year that we face eating dangers, but it seems to explode during the winter holidays. There are more parties and social gatherings so more food and drink are involved. The holidays are tempting, with all the treats and goodies bringing joy until you realize all the weight you added on by the end of the season.
What are you to do? Avoid all treats, cookies and other delectables? No…that is just absurd! Avoiding these things might just make you crave them more so it is better to have a little now to avoid scarfing down a whole lot later.
Let’s use a little caution and smarts to work our way through the goody maze. For some reason people like white chocolate. I don’t. Why? Simple. It’s not chocolate. Choose dark chocolate over white chocolate. White chocolate:
- has more saturated fat than any other type of chocolate
- lacks the healthy phytochemicals found in cocoa and dark chocolate
You know I’m a sucker for Reeses (see that post here), but the peanut butter filling is just that -> filling. They are everywhere this time of year in their cute holiday colored foil and single bite goodness. Instead of reaching for these sweet cups, pick chocolate or treats with real nuts. They add protein, fiber and phytonutrients to the mix.
Have fun and enjoy yourself this holiday season, but remember these little things to help you choose wiser. Drexelius Chocolates offers such a great selection of all natural chocolate you can easily find many ways to satisfy your desires without fillers or junk.
