I've fallen in love with 85% cocoa dark chocolate. Bitter? Not at all. My tastebuds have adjusted to the refined sweetness within the bite of compact, bitter richness. Before I disliked white chocolate. Now I don't think I can stand milk chocolate either...
Everyone knows there are amazing health benefits accompanying this tiny dessert treat. I do realize you could google it and find heaps of scientific articles about its goodness, but, if you're too lazy to do that, I've jotted down some basic >85% quality cocoa dark chocolate's facts below:
It's probably time I tell you how big an impact Blogilates/Cassey Ho has been to my life. She is not just a 'latest fave' of mine - she's been a daily inspiration for me. She's a 'certified fitness instructor, creator of POP Pilates', and uploads Pilates workout videos onto YouTube.
She creates a monthly workout calendar and emails it to all Blogilates fans at the beginning of every month. Until then, it's up to us to commit ourselves to get down onto our mat and do her daily list of videos. So far I've been doing it everyday for almost 2 months now. Yay! *Cheers!*
One of her mottos is 'eat clean'. I'm afraid I've been having trouble sticking to that one...will try to eat clean tomorrow! In fact, this afternoon I watched a chain of horrific animal cruelty videos on YouTube (eeeeekkkk!) Hence, I've now decided to incorporate as many vegan meals into my diet as much as possible. Have already figured my way around substituting my proteins....gonna go buy some lentils tomorrow. (Most legumes take too long to prepare and cook...)
Anyway! If you guys already know Blogilates - good on ya! Otherwise, check out her YouTube channel and website!
