It’s been over three weeks since I ate chocolate.
That’s 2 weeks of cleansing and 1 and 1/2 weeks of post cleanse protocol of no gluten, no dairy, no sugar.
THREE AND A HALF WEEKS!
No shopping and no chocolate!
This is no way for a girl to have fun.
So, tonight, I broke down and rummaged through the labyrinth of Whole Foods in search of something that would be Gluten Free/Sugar Free/Dairy Free but able to satiate my sweet tooth.
I found these:
They were certainly a poor substitute for the all-American chocolate chip cookie. (Pam Peterson, master of the super addictive homemade chocolate chip cookie, your sweets are sorely missed!)
Doesn’t matter I guess, I can’t eat the real thing for another week.
Compared to the alternative of NOTHING, these dried out little puke-y pucks did the trick.
They are so awful they make a raw apple look sweeter than molten chocolate lava cake.
And, maybe that’s what this whole cleanse process was supposed to do in the first place. Make the sweets and treats of my dreams so foreign that I end up craving apples, grapes and pears (oh, my!).
It most certainly is better for my body.
Which would be great…
If I only had an apple.
