Everyone has one. Or two. Or a dozen.
Everyone has that food – or that collection of different foods – that melts their resolve.
That food that breaks through all of the walls of determination, shreds will power into millions of shiny little pieces of confetti.
For me, that’s chocolate in almost all of it’s forms.
- Chocolate Bars
- Chocolate Cupcakes
- Chocolate-Covered Donuts
- Chocolate Ice Cream
- Chocolate-Covered Strawberries [That’s healthy, right? It’s a fruit.]
- Chocolate-Infused Beer. [Yes, they make that.]
- Chocolate Muffins
- Chocolate Cake
- Chocolate-Anything Cookies
Yeah, I could go on for hours here.
I’m salivating at the thought of these delectable goodies. Why does this one food destroy every shred of self-control I can muster?
I WANT CHOCOLATE NOW.
Since I cannot control myself around these items, I tend to keep them out of my house. I buy fruit sorbets to satiate my sweet tooth and avoid picking up any chocolate-based candies unless I know the person I give them to will keep it away from me.
Is avoidance the only way to avoid over-indulgence? Must I be like Superman and dodge my kryptonite at all costs? Or is there a happy medium to this craving?
I’m still working on an answer to that.
