Remember to buy in bulk

Check out my jar of CHOCOLATE.

70% cocoa, delicious and healthy.
Haha, well, apparently a SMALL amount a day is healthy.

My plan is to only ever use the good stuff so my kids get used to eating that and will hopefully reject the crap stuff.

Is it wrong of me to request of family at Easter that they only give the kids dark chocolate? It doesn't need to be the highest quality, just not the sort with lots of extra sugar.....the sort which I used to LOVE (milky bar anyone?).

My smarties obsession maybe coming to an end too, as I move on to REAL chocolate. It's going hand in hand with my cupboards slowly emptying of anything with a complicated ingredients panel on it.

I'm trying to follow the "if my great grandmother wouldn't recognise it as food, don't eat it" way of eating. I also keep hearing "if it wasn't around 10 000 years ago don't eat it".

Did they have chocolate around that long ago? If not, I'm sticking with the grandmother eating idea.

Love the dark chocolate - a friend of ours who lived in Germany for a while used to bring us a care package of German dark chocolates of various percentages - yum!

Yummy! Great plan! I think I need to add more chocolate to my cupboards! I think I have a chocolate obsession though, so it might not be good! :)

Mmmm, dark chocolate is THE BEST. The fact that it's healthier is really just icing on the cake :) I love your chocolate in the jar! I couldn't do that though or I'd be stuffing my face nonstop!

Thanks for the comment about my son's first birthday! I was pretty excited at all the first birthday things I found while out thrifting :)
