Clean-Eating Chocolate

When to Eat Clean and When to Eat Chocolate

Making better food choices gets easier the longer you do it. But I’m happy to admit that I do love an occasional foray into unhealthy food. Any of my friends and family will tell you that at a party, I’ll be the first to say yes to a slice of chocolate cake and a glass of wine!

Does this make me a hypocrite? I don’t think so, in fact I like to think I’m the exact opposite! I don’t pretend to eat clean 100% of the time, in fact I go out of my way to make it clear that moderation is absolutely key to maintaining a healthy and sustainable, clean-eating lifestyle.

Just in case you need some help, here is my list of situations in which clean-eating is not the answer:

Your six year old daughter has made you a chocolate birthday cake, decorated with smarties (some of which have been licked), and dusted with a well-timed sneeze.
You arrive at a wedding reception to find that there is a chocolate fountain that is bigger than you.
You win a golden ticket to visit Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory.
You are given a Lindt Dark Chocolate Easter Egg (bit of an unintentional chocolate theme going on here).

… and some situations in which clean-eating is the only answer:

Monday mornings – without fail, unless you’re on holiday.

When you realise your muffin top has gotten out of control and your top trouser button pops off during an important meeting.
The morning after the morning when you had a hangover (not the actual hangover morning as that would be ludicrous).
When someone tells you that clean-eating is a dangerous fad and that although you look really healthy you’re probably doing something terrible to your insides.
When you see a viral Facebook photo of a decade’s old McDonalds burger that hasn’t aged a day.


I hope that helps.

Ps. if you do win that golden ticket, I’ll buy it off you!
