I decided to make a fun little surprise for my brother. He tried chocolate covered potato chips at the Chocolate Trade Show a few weeks ago and loved them. I decided to surprise him by dipping some chips to bring on Thanksgiving. He does a lot for me so I thought it would be a fun treat for him. Can't wait to surprise him!
Check out how awesome they look!
I hope he likes them! I'm sure Delilah will have to taste them too ;)
I had a little extra chocolate melted so rather than waste it I dipped a few of my Candy Cane Joe Joe's in it. They are now in my freezer for safe keeping ;)
All I wanted for breakfast was clementines so I peeled up 4 and had a pile of citrus awesomeness. So good, exactly what I wanted!
For lunch I am currently working on a plate of roasted brussels sprouts, roasted cauliflower, some stuffed grape leaves and a pickle. SO good!
For dinner I'm bringing this spinach salad I bought from Trader Joe's. It is a spinach salad with quinoa, carrots, dried cranberries (which I'll pick out because it is all sweetened and sugary), chickpeas, edamame, pumpkin seeds and grape tomatoes. It comes with a carrot, ginger dressing. There is a little sugar in it but I really think the amount in negligible so I'm debating if I'll bring my own dressing or not.
I decided that Thanksgiving will be the end of my cleanse. I'm going to continue to eat clean, but a little added sweeteners (like maple syrup or agave) are fine in small amounts. I'm really happy with how I did and I feel great and I plan on continuing to eat this way, but I don't want to start (or re-start really) a pattern of being obsessive about things like maple syrup in every bite of food I eat. This is meant to make me healthier as a person, and also to help me have a healthy relationship with food. Time will tell I guess.
Hope you all have a great day! Can't wait til Thursday.
