Ha Ha! Was it gluten free? Sweets are hard for me too! Especially since I get hypoglycemic at times.

Dried fruit, honey, coconut ice creams, my weaknesses. And gf/ df homemade cookies.

Yes, gluten free but it did have milk in it. It was Sammi's Stuff from whole foods. Delicious!

I love GF bread too (addicted).

Please don't call yourself a "cheater" -- you are an EXPLORER and just got off the path into some kind of different "garden" for a moment, eh?

And that might be just fine for you now and then, as a treat. The product you enjoyed is of good quality. And it was GF. Yippee!

Of course, for those who must be gluten free, there is no "cheating" as that would be truly a "clobber" - but there are ways to avoid for what we want.

As for milk, if you generally must avoid, having some should NOT be a problem now and then like gluten would. So, RELAX.

Those SAMMI's STUFF items look delicious. Glad you enjoyed it. Good for you!

I need to be dairy free, too, but sometimes really crave yogurt. And it does my sinuses in, big time. So I just don't do it very often.

Generally, when we find ourselves at odds in this territory, good questions for anyone:

Maybe your diet ("food plan" my preferred term) is too strict? IMO, so many are. I'm the first to figure out a way to turn a "don't" into a "do & enjoy" and just do not believe in "diets" that are too strict that someone feels like a cheater if they step on a crack.

There are ways to enjoy cake - or just about any kind of food - and have it be a good part of healthful diet. Really. Just switch out the ingredients. Even black beans and applesauce can be part of a good cake.

And some of these "alternative" ingredients can be a vast improvement to the taste, texture and what a food can do for us. Really.

And . . . I find that included chocolate in my food plan every day is a wonderful help to not want lesser quality items.

80% DARK, one ounce is something to consider. Equal Exchange Panama Extra Dark is the best I've found. It is gluten free & dairy free but not on the label. Their website clarifies.

The very high number on dark chocolate really matters. That's what it's all about. Two weeks of daily dark chocolate probably has less sugar than a treat even from the best GF bakery section, too.

This may be a regional item yet something similar may be just about anywhere.

I find these to be excellent . . . and the ingredients are delicious (and reasonably glucose friendly with the flax to help).

Flax seeds are higher in concentration here than any other ingredient - and it works. I would not be able to tell the difference between these and a bakery muffin.

FLAX FOR LIFE - chocolate "brownie" muffins

I do not like their other offerings, find them way too sweet. But these. . . . ahhh. And they freeze well

Catgirl,

I have eaten dark chocolate cake/brownies for years especially when I take my herbs. If you eat something that you think you shouldn't, eat an antidote with it.

I like to think (and have read) that baiting the bugs with what they like and then hitting them with poison, they will ingest both and it keeps them in the digestive track.

I have also read that some docs in England (I think) killed MSRA with doxy and sugar for the same reason. These suckers take a lot of strategy to outsmart them.

I also think that dark chocolate causes them to dry out. Hope you enjoyed!! Am heading over to Whole Foods to buy some Sammistuff. Oddly was unaware of this brand. Just all my 2 cents.

Gael

Thanks Keebler (explorer)! Also, those brownies look awesome! I will check them out. My diet is definitely too strict (proto), but I'm killing it, so I can see the horizon now (make it so).

OMG Steve, now THAT'S a cake!

Gael, you're right, I should have taken some parasite stuff with it! Sugar is bait for sure. MMMM, Sammis stuff!

I heard the vanilla is really good, but the chocolate one was just what I needed. I had a tiny segment of it again today. So good!
