Cocoa & Gobbling

My wife has begun my diet program. She dislikes a wider range of the prepared foods. Vanilla pudding is one. It’s too … vanilla. There’s only 15 calories per tablespoon of cocoa, so I suggested she try adding that chocolate addition.

“When I add it, it’s lumpy. When you fix it for me, it’s smooth.”

It’s a touch of the master, I said.

Actually, cocoa is made for heated blending. When mixed cold, it requires a vigorous and lengthy shaking.

My post-diet transition has been a challenge. I have to curb my tendency to gobble down foods now. Whole grain breakfast cereal with milk. Yum. But I have to eat slowly. Think: proclaiming the Scriptures in a huge reverberant church. Still, I’ve dropped another pound this week; the total is now 64. My BMI stands at a fraction above 22. Good health, here I come.
