A New Chocolate Find!

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

I found this in the back of the fridge this week.


I had bought it at our last trip to Whole Foods.  I have tried chocolate soy milk in the past, and THOUGHT it was this brand, but after trying this, I don’t think it was.  This stuff is seriously good!  Tastes just like chocolate cow milk (maybe a little bit thinner–but I’m okay with that because I hate the thickness of regular chocolate cow milk–usually I have to add some regular milk in to decrease the thickness).

Kimm even tried it and she liked it too.  Amazing!

I’ve been drinking a half a cup before going for a walk and it’s that perfect burst of energy.

We will definitely be adding this to our regular grocery list.

And now I’m thinking that I will try the vanilla flavor as well, to possibly put over cereal.

Here are the nutritional stats:


One cup–only 140 calories, 3 grams fat, no trans fat or cholesterol, 100 mg sodium, 350 mg of potassium, 2 grams of fiber (wow…in milk!), 19 grams sugar, and 5 grams protein.  Ingredients are not too bad either…the first line of the ingredients got cut off!–it was soymilk (go figure!)–see next picture…


WOW–look at those omega 3’s!  They say they are good for you.

I’m glad I gave this soymilk another try.  It turned out to be a wonderful find 🙂

In other news, I slept during the day and got up at 5 pm.  Kimm and I went for our daily walk (this is a totally new thing for us–we’ve been walking 2.5 miles a day).  Of course I had ZERO motivation to go and would have readily skipped it but thankfully Kimm said, “We really should go,” and so we went.  And after I was done, I was so glad I went.  I really LOVE the feeling after exercising and being all sweaty and feeling so strong.  All those endorphins I guess 🙂  It’s just the getting there part that is difficult for me.  I wonder if I’ll ever WANT to go out exercising.  We shall see.

Had a wonderful dinner of chicken parm (Boca Chicken patties…so good).  The meal tasted so good–because of the meal itself and the fact that I was starving!

And now, the crazy fool that I am, I am preparing to go into work tonight.  Even after having a horrendous night last night.  Somehow I agreed to come in.  I guess I don’t like to say no.  But it’s only from 11 pm to 7 am so hopefully it should be MUCH better.  No 10 pm med pass (which took me until 12:30 am yesterday!).  And the extra money will be nice.  I know I won’t complain when I see the paycheck!

Getting ready for a snack and then work.

I also have this wicked bad pinched nerve in my neck that is DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!
