The Smart Plan of Attack for Chocolate Cravings

I can’t resist chocolate.

If a chocolatey dessert is offered to me, I will right a losing battle for a few minutes before giving in. If I have chocolate in the house it will be gone before you know it. On the other hand, if I don’t have chocolate and a craving hits, I will eat everything in the house trying unsuccessfully to satisfy it. So, leaving it out completely is also a bad choice for me.

The best plan for me is to be smart about the chocolate treats I keep in the house and stay strong with portions.

Today is International Chocolate Day, so it’s a great time to share some of my tips and hope you will share some of your own with me. Also, I have a giveaway for all you chocolate lovers, so look for that!

International Chocolate Day Balance Bar Giveaway!

Who is a chocolate lover???

It is a definite weakness of mine! I crave chocolate multiple times throughout the day… And don’t even get me started on bedtime!!

My biggest challenge is finding something to fulfill that chocolate craving by allowing me a decent quantity and a great chocolate taste.  Balance Bars have that and offer a 40-30-30 carb, protein, fat ratio that makes them a wonderful alternative to grabbing that candy bar.

How awesome is it that the folks at Balance Bar offered to give me and one of my readers a big ol’ pack of their best chocolatey flavors!?

They are so good! The Dark Chocolate Caramel Macchiato smells amazing the second you open the package, and the Dark Chocolate Crunch is perfect for satisfying those chocolate cravings!

Healthy option for chocolate cravings - balance bar

These flavors have been my go-to chocolate fixes, and I get to share them with you! The winner will get an amazing supply of Dark Chocolate Crunch and Dark chocolate Caramel Macchiato Balance Bars! Woohoo!
