the latest addiction....

hot chocolate.

the school has these big costco size containers of hot chocolate powder in the staff room and the other day i thought i'd have a cup. then later, i had another. and still later, another. everyday, i try to limit it to just one cup but i'm cold, i want sweetness, it's so yummy. i brought my own 44% less calories hot chocolate powder to school the other day thinking that would help but it just doesn't taste as good.

i am drinking some now as i write. how am i going to break this...?

but speaking of drinking addictions...i have had diet coke in weeks. i don't have any in the house ever. once in awhile when i get wendy's, i have diet coke but it's hard to believe that it's so removed from my daily meals. crazy. remember the three a day? wow.

This probably won't help you with your addiction, but you know what's really good? Put a tiny bit of orange peel in when you're pouring in the hot water. This will give it a slight orange flavo(u)r without adding any calories. I learned this trick at my favorite coffee shop in Seattle.

I do remember the 3 a day DC days. You are a champ...if you could beat the iron grip of DC, hot chocolate is nothing! What about switching to an herbal tea? I know it's not as creamy, but you can get some lovely ones that are sweet(ish) and comforting without the calories and sugar.

mmm my favourite herbal tea - that still has a strong flavour, as too many herbal teas are weak - is Bengal Spice. so good.

i like to make my hot chocolate with caeds homo milk and add marshmallows. more calories and sugar, but, you know. yum.
