This afternoon, my lovely co-worker turned to me and declared that she needed chocolate. I understand that feeling because I need chocolate like every day.
She went to the vending machine, grabbed a chocolate bar and promised me that later she would eat veggies and work out extra hard.
I promised her I’d come up with a healthy chocolate alternative for those afternoon cravings. And I did!
