From the Jewish Food Hero Kitchen: Detox Vegan Chocolate “Milk”

Vegan Chocolate Milk

I am planning a joyful life-long relationship with chocolate and there are times when I feel that I need to take a mini-break or just reduce my consumption. For me, eating chocolate every day does not feel good. And yet, sometimes I fall into the habit of noshing on chocolate. To me, chocolate is not a food to nosh, it is a treat to savor.

Detox Vegan Chocolate Milk

Everyone is different but I notice that if I overindulge in chocolate, I start enjoying it less.  

There is a thin line between eating a bit of chocolate for pleasure and eating chocolate out of boredom, habit and/or physical need.  

I do not have an all-or-nothing philosophy on chocolate (or much else) and so when I want to reduce or eliminate eating chocolate, I simply transition with a healthier option – enjoying vegan chocolate “milk” instead for a few days as a “detox”.    

Using high quality organic kosher cocoa powder gives me the chocolate taste and feel that I love plus all the antioxidants, iron and magnesium.  

What I notice:

Transitioning from eating chocolate everyday to enjoying a vegan chocolate milk everyday instead allows me to break free of the overindulging in chocolate pattern and makes me feel physically better right away. After a few days of enjoying this vegan chocolate “milk” daily, I am able to “feel” less physical need for chocolate. When I feel ready, I return to eating chocolate once in awhile for pleasure.
