    Chocolate.

    Post by Mud Island Dweller on Wed Mar 18 2015, 21:43

    Went into the chocolatier in Chester today to get some 100% chocolate to try out, wasn't sure if l should laugh, scream or strangle the guy in there:

    "Oh are you diabetic?"
    "Yes T2"
    "We have diabetic chocolate"
    "No just this please, l am sure you do have diabetic chocolate but it is full of carbs and a carb is sugar"
    "Well yes correct but this won't affect you"
    "Just THIS bar please"
    "Well l won't argue l always say that diabetics know a lot more than l do, l mean this is 100% chocolate nothing added and the diabetic one tastes a lot nicer"
    *Sighs, roll my eyes* "Just this"
    "Tell you what how about l give you a couple of squares of diabetic chocolate and you can test yourself on it?"
    "How about you just sell me THIS one"
    "Oh alright but l still think you should take some"

    I didn't take any diabetic stuff and this 100% bar will last ages.. each nibble takes 10mins for the gums to go back to normal, perfect rofl

    Unbelievable banghead instead of strangling him you should have grabbed him by the throat and force fed him a couple of bars of diabetic chocolate then he'd know about the side effects freakout

    I also had a discussion about diabetic chocolate in a shop today. Not as interesting as your conversation though MID! I bought 6 bars of lindt 90% chocolate at Sainsbury's because they were 2 for £3. They will last me ages.

    The cashier said "Ooh someone likes chocolate"
    "Yes, they are for me. I am diabetic"
    "I am diabetic too, I have to buy diabetic chocolate"
    "This is better for you, it's low carb and doesn't contain the nasty additives that are in diabetic chocolate"
    "It's the sugar content you need to look at. I like milk chocolate"
    "No, it's total carbs you need to watch if you're diabetic"
    " Well I have never heard that before"
    "Do you use the internet?"
    "Yes"
    "Here's the name of a site which will explain it to you better than I can"

    I'll have to print out some more slips of paper with this forum address and the main site too, that was my last one Smile

    Yeah,I've had that too in the past-The french 'Connection' is that 'Forumotion' is actually a french company. Wink

    Well this thread is called Chocolate!

    Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' Blog has some lovely recipes. One I've copied and pasted is this:

    Paleo Easter Eggs

    " I have to say these are the easiest little things to make, and only takes 20 minutes until they are ready to eat. Paleo Easter Eggs are a tasty little treat with no added sugar, egg free, dairy free, grain free, nut free, gluten free little bundles of joy.

    Easter eggs these days seem to go on sale almost as soon as the Christmas decorations get packed away, and I for one was guilty of buying them way too soon, then buying more, and more. This year the Easter Bunny will still call here, but will be bringing the best quality chocolate it could find and just on Easter Sunday, not for the months and months they have been selling in the stores.

    Paleo Easter Eggs:
    Ingredients:
    75g/ 2.6 oz shredded coconut unsweetened
    70g/ 2.5 oz coconut oil melted
    3 tbs coconut cream
    1 tbs granulated stevia, or sweetener of choice, to taste
    ½ tsp vanilla

    Chocolate Coating:
    60g/ 2.1 oz coconut oil melted
    6 tsp cocoa powder
    2 tsp granulated stevia, or sweetener of choice, to taste

    Method - Instructions:

    Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
    Refrigerate until solid enough to roll into egg shapes.
    Roll small amounts into egg shapes and place in the fridge again to set completely.

    Chocolate Coating:
    Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
    Place 1 Paleo Easter Egg in the chocolate coating at a time. Using a spoon, turn the egg until completely covered.
    Place the chocolate coated eggs on a plate.
    Refrigerate until chocolate coating is set

    NUTRITION INFORMATION
    Serving size: 1 Paleo easter Egg Calories: 128 Fat: 13.4g Carbohydrates: 1.1g Sugar: 0.5g Fibre: 0.6g Protein: 0.9g "

    Original recipe idea here http://www.ditchthecarbs.com/2015/03/13/paleo-easter-eggs/

    Can you believe Easter is only two weeks away.

    All the best Jan
