Healthy Valentine’s Day truffles

If there is something that really interests most dieticians and nutritionists about special occasions it has to be the fact that these are the days when people find it very easy to let go of their guard and just get crazy. It is not that you cannot handle the pressure, but you cannot do it just the way you want to. Valentine’s Day was just around and pretty soon we will have Easter and so many other holidays left in the year. Holidays are a good time to spend with your friends, family and loved ones, but this does not mean that you undo everything that you have worked so hard for over the years.

Perhaps these special occasions can be summed up in one statement; lots of cuddles and calories! During these special occasions emotions run deep, cards are exchanged, gifts are shared and hearty meals are prepared. You cannot run away from it all, but you can embrace it and make the best out of it. Working out to get into the shape you are in is not one of the easiest things to do. You can remember all too well how hard it was for you in the first place. You can also remember the times when you were so close to quitting, but you put on a brave face and worked through the challenges. Now, why would you want to go back?

The sweetness of any holiday or a special occasion can easily delude you into wreaking havoc on your nutritional goals. However, you can easily enjoy the best of the holidays while still keeping your diet just the way you would love to. It’s all about grains and you will be able to live happily ever after. In line with your New Year resolutions, forget about those sweets, hearty chocolates and any other thing that will appeal to your sweet tooth, and pay attention to the grains. This is your year to change and achieve great success with your diet, so make sure that you follow through. Instead of the sweet stuff, how about you send your loved one, or even treat yourself to a protein filled alternative. There’s nothing that beats a nice box of protein chocolate designed just for you the way you want it.

Of course a lot of people expect to get chocolates on special occasions, but the one thing that no one will ever expect is that you surprise them with a nice box of protein chocolate. For someone who understands how important it is to be on a good diet, this is a dream come true for them. One of the best things about this is that you can either have this chocolate custom designed for you, or you can also simply make it on your own. Nothing beats the feeling you get when you take time to make your chocolate just the way you want it. Besides, when you are through with the protein chocolate, your body will have earned 64 calories, 4 grams of total fat, protein and total carbs each.
