If You Can't Beat 'Em, Eat 'Em!
One of my goals for this year has been to stop eating chocolate, and while I have been able to reduce how much of it I eat, I now know one thing for sure: I will never-ever be able to completely stop eating chocolate, period!
The nice thing about calorie counting is that I don't have to stop eating it. My goal was unrealistic, and it simply originated from the fact that I have been just eating so much chocolate. Now that I am a little clearer of what's I'll be able to accomplish and what not, I modified my goal a little bit: never to eat more than 50 calories worth of chocolate at a time. I was fortunate, namely, to discover that my local grocery store is selling tiny little packages from Lake Champlain Chocolates that are about 1"x1" in size and approximately 40 calories. I just had one and it totally did the trick for me - they are just as delicious as much larger serving sizes, yet they don't make a significant impact on my diet.
I wonder why we don't have more products in those tiny serving sizes? I know that there are plenty of 100 calorie snack packs, but how about going even smaller? How about a miniature ice cream? I'd be certainly willing to pay a disproportionally high price for a tiny serving size of some of my favorite foods that I can't stop eating. Can you think of any other foods that should be offered in tiny packages?
