I shunned restaurants this week, devoting myself instead to chocolate. I tasted cookies, mousse (is the plural mousses? It's clearly not mice), tarts, hot drinks and sauce. And then I judged a new chocolate competition before judging I'd eaten enough chocolate and should lay off the stuff for a while...
Described as one of the most chemically perfect of foods, chocolate contains an interesting mix of ingredients which make you predisposed to like it. Caffeine, antioxidants and proteins are all present in addition to chemicals such as Serotonin which purportedly recreate the feelings of being in love.
OK ladies, if you're like me you've probably eaten ten times your body weight in incredible xmas fare and now need to go on a diet, and like me you hate diets cos they generally suck. But I have devised a special myfoodeeblog diet plan where you can have chocolate and ice cream every day and still lose weight!
This week is Chocolate Week (14th-20th October), when people across the UK celebrate everything to do with the sugary indulgence. Chocolate remains a household favourite in the UK today, with the average Brit eating approximately 8kg per year, and only five per cent of the population admitting to not enjoying the sweet treat within the past six months.
