Sweet Indulgence

Every holiday season, my financial advisor sends out a box of chocolates. As someone who has worked hard to kick the sugar habit after a lifetime of craving sweets, this gift arrives with mixed emotions. My first thought is to stow the chocolates and serve at Christmas dinner as a side dessert for guests. But in the end, I keep it for myself, indulging throughout the holidays. And it feels like a special treat.

    Wendy, I have that same relationship with sweets. Now I just save them largely for the weekends or special events like dinner parties.

    Except for chocolate >+ 80% cacao–that’s my daily dessert breakfast. Usually I have a square or two of the 88% Endangered Species bar. Dip in a cup of hot coffee and suck on the melty bit.
