Here's a simple truth: If I don't have chocolate in the house, I will actively seek it out. And when I seek it out, I'm not looking for the healthy, stevia-sweetened options I'd have at home. Because that stuff isn't commercially available in many stores, and I just want something sweet…and chocolatey…ASAP. So that usually means I will run to the nearest Kroger, buy a ChocoLove chocolate-covered pretzel bar (Don't try one if you haven't. Please. You'll never forgive me, and I'll have to bear the guilt of introducing you to bad-for-you chocolate that you DID NOT NEED).
Anyway, that's my downfall. Now you know. It used to be Dr. Pepper, but since I quit soda over a year ago I haven't even been tempted by Dr P. Now it's chocolate.
Fortunately, I have a HUGE list of chocolatey goodness that I keep handy for such times (you know, the chocolate emergencies. I promise that's a real thing). Here it is, in all of it's gooey and delicious glory – 100+ Low-Carb Chocolate Desserts. These are all gluten-free, and all of them work for Trim Healthy Mama as an “S.” Enjoy!
