Got Chocolate?

I’ve always heard that eating chocolate produces those good-feeling endorphins that can turn a frown upside down, and though I would say I find chocolate to give me a general sense of comfort (at times, I’m not a big chocolate lover normally) it wasn’t until last week that I really experienced that “chocolate high”.

Because of the diet restrictions I’ve had over the last month, I went three weeks without eating chocolate of any kind. Because of the dairy problems I’ve had I was advised to steer clear of milk chocolate, however, as I mentioned, I’m not a big chocolate buff. I tend to prefer the salty snacks to the sweet ones, so avoiding chocolate was relatively easy.

The thing I was really missing was milk. Last week I decided to remedy this by purchasing a lactose-free protein drink that was chocolate flavor -to trick my brain into thinking I was drinking chocolate milk.

Well within minutes of my first sip of this chocolate “milk” I found myself smiling and laughing for the first time in weeks. It appears that after living off of nothing but potatoes and pasta, a chocolate high can pack a powerful punch!

It never ceases to amaze me how something as simple as a chocolate protein drink could help improve my mood.

This morning’s chocolate “milk” drink is dedicated to the anniversary of this blog -which just happens to be today! Hooray!

    My daughter had food allergies to all egg and dairy products, you would be shocked to find out how many alternatives are out there!

    She loves it when we make “chocolate” cake with no dairy or egg products. I have to say it taste just as good as the “real” stuff!

    Chocolate has tended to hurt my teeth lately… but dark chocolate, without all the sugar (and good chocolate, I’m a brand-ist, lol Hate cheap chocolate) is amazing. Chocolate protein drinks are omg amazing.
