Yes, I am diabetic - but I like my chocolate (yes - there is a song about my love for this creation - I'm addicted to chocolate as you can tell - and my hips reveal it). Don't give me milk chocolate (which is higher in fat/sugar) but the real stuff, the darker the better, and no additives of man made kind. Sorry but recent discussions within the D-OC of over consumption of sugar free chocolates brought memories of years ago with having a few days off from work with derriere problems after engulfing the diabetic version. Never EVER again!
Even better, a recent study done has once again proven that chocolate contains more healthy plant compounds, gram-for-gram, than fruit juice. It also revealed that when comparing cocoa powder, the raw ingredient of chocolate, and powders made from fruit that cocoa has alot more flavanols, health-giving plant chemicals, and more antioxidants. Duh, I like I really need a study to tell me this - I mean - who doesn't feel better after a few squares of chocolate?
Okay - let's screech to a halt!!! Egads, enough of being blinded by science facts here. I'm now waiting patiently for Valentine's Day - and the hopes that my main squeeze is reading this blog - and knows what I want!
Ahh - to heck with waiting - I'm off to get myself some chocolate !
