Carob... The Chocolate Alternative
So some people on this forum suggested I try carob, since I cannot eat chocolate. So today when I went to the Whole Foods store near my apartment for my normal grocery shop, I discovered carob ricemilk. I thought that would be a good way to ease myself into chocolate. And if I did react to it, hopefully it would not be so bad because the ricemilk would dilute it. Guess what. NO REACTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That makes me so happy. Of course maybe it was a horrible idea to try it, because instead of craving chocolate, and resisting the temptation, I'll be obsessed with carob. Who knows. But at least I know I can resist the candy at work now, so hopefully having the carob won't affect me wanting that. That would be bad. Oh well. But at least I found an alternative. I wonder if anyone would notice if I used carob in my cooking instead of chocolate? Hmmm.... It would be interesting to try.
