Chocolate! I love it! I also try to limit the amount I have around so I don't pig-out on it. Especially dark chocolate, the really good kind from the Co-Op, its fabulous. What I do have, in case of emergencies, are some Toll House semi-sweet morsels on hand. If I'm going to a pot-luck I can whip up some cookies or have a few to satisfy the urge.
Food Challenge #1
Open up about your food "guilty pleasure." But don't feel guilty! It's ok. No one's perfect!
"Orosensation" is how a food feels in your mouth. Food companies spend millions figuring out the perfect crunch of a potato chip or the ideal sizzle of a soda.
While it's important to eat healthy and nutritious food, my dears, you're still human! It's hardly practical to expect that you'll always resist the siren songs of sugar, fat, and salt that your bodies evolved to crave. So, if you're always going to have a secret (or not-so-secret) love for something which might not be The Best, might as well call it out and celebrate it!
- Don't think too hard. Just answer the question: What's your favorite junk food? You're welcome to define "junk" in your own inimitable way.
