This is designed to be dark chocolate, meaning heavy on the cocoa and light on the sweetener. The high cocoa-to-sweetener ratio means you can taste the complex, almost-(pleasantly-)burned flavor of the bitter roasted cocoa. But if you’re not a person who loves 72%-85% dark chocolate bars, this might not be the chocolate for you. If you are, you’ll love the great taste of this pleasantly bitter homemade sugar free dark chocolate.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Starting your day with a healthy and nutritious breakfast helps kick-start your metabolism, stabilize your blood glucose, and ward off mid-morning hunger. I know for a fact that, if I skip breakfast, I usually experience a mid-morning energy slump which is usually accompanied by a craving for junk food and coffee! Recipes here.
In this part of the world, there's no dearth of male action heroes, you know, those with real martial arts background. Think Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, Wu Jing, and closer to home, Tony Jaa. How about a female counterpart? You're likely to struggle hard to name a credible one, Michelle Yeoh notwithstanding. So Thai director Prachya Pinkaew is probably shrewd enough to identify this golden opportunity, and so introduces us to Yanin Vismistananda in her debut feature Chocolate.
Oh, Karen. I feel your pain! It hit me early at 40 (seven years ago). I had kept the weight off with low carb until I started the blog. Now I’m struggling. I’m around food all day and grazing all day – and let’s face it, not exercising like I should. This is a wonderful recipe. It freezes well if you opt to make the two smaller sizes. It is pretty heavy on calories and fat, and very filling so I have smaller pieces myself. It’s a crowd pleaser! Enjoy. -Kim
And in true Jackie Chan culture, besides the end credits featuring some of the NG shots and injuries to the stars and stunt folk, you'll be glad to know that Yanin did most of her own stunts, and it's indeed no mean feat fighting in a skirt of that length, without it getting in the way. While the finale battle involves countless of Crazy88 types ala Kill Bill in wave after wave of attacks, culminating in battling it out on the facade of a multi-storey shophouse building complete with smashing windows, ledges and neon signboards, my personal favourite had to be at the abattoir. In reddish hues, the villains are sans shirts, meaning risks of personal injury are higher without padding that can be hidden underneath the clothes. And with menacing looking meat hooks hanging, and using cleavers as projectiles, just make your job drop at how these fights were choreographed and filmed, especially the slamming of bodies against concrete stalls.
Jeni, I am SO SORRY! I had one other comment in the last month about the same thing. Two things that may have affected the dessert. 1. I got so much flack about the original pudding recipe having 1 Tbsp of cornstarch (or arrowroot) in it that I reduced the amount a few months ago. I have recently changed it back to the original quantity. 2. If the pudding isn’t cooked enough, it won’t set properly. So, unfortunately, you were a victim of one or both.
Any suggestions for butterscotch pudding to make this with? We always made a half chocolate (on one side not mixed) and half butterscotch which was personal favorites with this combo. No idea where to begin making butterscotch pudding. Will have to research I suppose. BTW we call this Maxine for some reason through our families recipe of this. But I totally get better than sex too. It’s so yummy.
Keep up electrolytes. The major electrolytes in our bodies are sodium, potassium and magnesium. Because a low carb diet (especially a keto diet!) reduces the amount of water you store, this can flush out electrolytes and make you feel sick (called “keto flu”). This is temporary, but you can avoid or eliminate it by salting your food liberally, drinking broth (especially bone broth), and eating pickled vegetables. Some people also choose to take supplements for electrolytes, but it’s best to first consult a doctor that understands and supports keto/low carb lifestyles.
Hi Libby. Re foods to eat. Still a newbie and exploring all this. Re the foods for example cocnut cream- is there a specific brand or type you,should buy? Same with butter and meats- re grass fed versus grain fed. Coconut oil- is there ones you should or shouldn’t use brand wise. Lchf site says grass fed meat and butter. Does it have to say organic on the butter. Labelling is really bad in regards to this. And your cheeses- re Brie for,example- are they all they same or are there certain ones of them you have to buy ? This goes for all cheese that you can have to- are there ones better for you than others?
This dessert is absolutely delicious! It took me a long time to make it. I’m not much of a cook. It’s a bit expensive but worth it. The only mistake was when preparing the first layer ( cream cheese layer), I put all of the sweeteners in with heavy cream at once which stopped my cream from whipping up. Didn’t make that mistake again. Definitely recommend it!!!! (I used a new method, chocolate whipped cream). Thank you.

You won't believe that this creamy and decadent dark chocolate mousse recipe is low carb and sugar-free! In a blender or food processor, combine avocados, coconut oil, cocoa powder, sugar-free chocolate syrup, and a splash of cream or almond milk until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, fold in whipped cream and any sugar substitute (Stevia is recommended) for that light, fluffy texture.

“I think the caution with a low-carbohydrate diet is the idea that it’s very restrictive,” Zeratsky says. “When you start getting into the very low carbohydrates, when you’re talking about 20 grams, which for some people would be a cup of [starchy] vegetables. … If there is someone who is interested in it, it’s very important they understand what a low carbohydrate diet means in a practical sense.”
I have taken my cake out of the oven, I used pyure sweetner and only used 1 cup of it instead of 1 1/3 cup like it said originally, I wish I had read all the suggestions because I would have added that little bit extra almond flour like you suggested. The batter still wasn’t too runny so I figured it would work. I added a couple of drops of orange flavoring and a pinch of salt. I batter was so good I was tempted to eat a little extra batter My springdoem pan did leak but I am not too worried about that. I did need to leave the cake in 10 extra minutes as it wasn’t completely cooked at 30 minutes. I’m so excited to try this, I’ll come back later and give you my opinion on taste

Hi Lisa, I think you might end up with chocolate syrup if you use honey for the sweetener. You may want to look into granulated honey, which might produce a coarse or grittier texture to the chocolate, but you may still have a chance of getting the chocolate to solidify. If you need any help, please feel free to email me (acleanbake@gmail.com). And welcome to the site! I’m so glad you found me 🙂
While the above raw version is fantastic for using in no-bake treats or eating by the handful, if you want a version that you can bake with or that has the option of being oil-free, simply melt a bar of unsweetened chocolate and sweeten to taste with your favorite sweetener of choice. You can add a tsp oil for smoother results, but it’s not required. Pour into a parchment-lined container or candy molds, and freeze until firm. Then break into small pieces or pop out of the molds. This version needs no refrigeration and can be used anywhere you’d use store-bought chocolate chips.
One night, I came across the Web sites of some boutique chocolatiers -- companies who make chocolate candy in small batches and have a lot of passion for their product. I love chocolate, and I'm an adventurous eater, so I ended up ordering an assortment of bonbons with unusual flavors. Each one was yummy, but the real standout was a truffle filled with salted caramel fudge and chipotle chile, covered in a layer of popping candy. Eating it was an experience.

"An acute bout of high-intensity exercise distributes blood away from the stomach and intestines due to the need for greater circulation of blood to the muscles, which may be a factor involved in appetite suppression. This does not occur with less demanding exercise," David Stensel, a professor of exercise metabolism at Loughborough University in Leicestershire, England, told Greatist.
An extreme form of low-carbohydrate diet – the ketogenic diet – is established as a medical diet for treating epilepsy.[14] Through celebrity endorsement it has become a popular weight-loss fad diet, but there is no evidence of any distinctive benefit for this purpose, and it risks causing a number of side effects.[14] The British Dietetic Association named it one of the "top 5 worst celeb diets to avoid in 2018".[14]
