To Chocoate Or Not To Chocolate with

To Chocolate or Not To Chocolate

With Valentine’s recently passing and Easter right around the corner, tis the season for buying the goodies. What’s a woman’s best friend? No, other than diamonds. That’s right, chocolate! But what it does to the waistline maybe isn’t such a friend. But there are always options.

My absolute favorite brand of health junk food is called Skinny Cow. My husband, who’s all about being healthy, found the ice cream truffles. 100 calorie truffles? Had to be nasty. But I gave it a try and it’s actually pretty good. Taste like normal ice cream. In the candy department, they offer their clusters, which are also to die for.We all love dark chocolate and hear about the benefits, mostly heart. But it offers more. Other than being great for the circulatory system, it helps prevent cancer, is a brain stimulator and it’s suggested that it helps fight coughs. Weird,I know. But who needs to argue with statistics like those? One warning: the darker the chocolate the igher the iron content. But 85% really does taste plastic. Just sayin…

Girls love a good snack, and I’ll be the first to admit that eating chocolate does give great pleasure. But keeping in mind never to overdo it and to be conscience of what we do put in our mouths, this season can be very delectable.
Soul by Erika Lindsen:
Blood runs across the floor like a winter’s creek. It always puts a smile on his face. As a Taker – a demon sent to entice humans to commit suicide in order to gain their soul for Lucifer – Drebin is at the top of his game. He has already claimed 421 souls and there is no sign of him slowing down. Much like a fine wine, Drebin gets better with age. Alexia Downer is just a few months into her freshman year of college and still undecided about a career. Ally is more than eager to meet new people and live up to the college stereotypes. But her gentle nature may cause her to put trust in the wrong person.The stage is set, the hound is released, but Drebin begins to have second thoughts about his next victim, Alexia, his 422nd victim. Her beauty is mesmerizing and her spirit is captivating. As much as he tries, Drebin cannot bring himself to destroy her, yet he must. He has a higher, more vicious power to answer to, after all…
