    Oh.. I forgot a non-scale victory. This is the FIRST year I did not have even ONE small piece of chocolate for Valentines Day, even though I was swimming in it, it seems. Not a taste and not a lick. Unheard of for me!! However, when I get a chocolate urge, I pop a little cocoa nib in my mouth. Its the uttermost bitter chocolate but hits the spot without derailing me! I keep a small container on my desk.

    Whole foods has them. You can the rest of mine. DH and mom won't eat them b/c they aren't sweet & I don't need them.

    Yay for the nsv and sleep. Mine is better on lchf, but still not great. I haven't really teased out any patterns yet.

    How were the dried jalapeņos? Did they become super hot?

    I started it back 2 days ago, and it is really helping with the tummy issues as well as the water retention. I forgot that the reason I started it was so that I could minimize water retention and thus keep BP down. Gotta get on it, cause I do not want to take those meds.

    I use a french press but you can use a loose leaf tea ball. Place like 1T or so in the tea ball or in my french press I put @ 3T, pour in boiling water and let steep. It will not look like standard hot cocoa, its like a chocolate tea. Then save the used nibs (freeze them) and put them in other stuff. I can imagine they would be incredible in your fat bread. It might taste like a pastry.
