Somewhere between writing the middle and the end of my summer release Operation Prince Charming – the chocolate monkey jumped on my back.
It started off innocently enough.
I needed the sugar buzz to help my weary fingers and aching backside keep pace with the story spinning inside my head. But now that it’s done, I don’t have an excuse to buy my beloved Hershey Chocolate Bliss milk chocolates by the sack.
I tried going cold turkey – but chocolate keeps calling my name!
So I’ve found couple of substitutes that allow me to enjoy the rich taste of chocolate without bursting out of my skinny jeans.
VitaMuffin VitaTops in Deep Chocolate satisfy the chocolate craving for only 100 calories, and the 6 grams of fiber are filling enough that you won’t reach for a seconds.
At 180 calories each, Luna Protein bar in Cookie Dough are a decent candy bar substitute. But keep in mind, this is a PROTEIN bar – it’s not going to taste like a Snickers. Still, tasty enough to keep a sweet tooth happy, and it’s chockfull of vitamins and 12 grams of protein.
If you’re on Weight Watchers (I’ve been Lifetime for seven years, so I can’t help counting points in my head.) Here are the points:
VitaMuffin VitaTops in Deep Chocolate – 1 pt
Luna Protein bar in Cookie Dough – 3 pts
I’ll tell you more about Operation Prince Charming next month. Meanwhile, enjoy the chocolate!
