@Phazo ...Ive noticed that my body loves starches. By figuring this out I can't over eat anymore(my calories end up at like 1700 daily just because). Paleo is DEFINITELY training my body to stop overeating. Its awesome.

it's amazing to me how coconut oil tastes great straight up when my eating is balanced and my protein/fat/carb intake is balanced... as soon as I go to town on a jar of almond butter though, it tastes absolutely foul. i think paleo is training my body to stop overeating.. fantastic!

Anything less than 90% and I'm eating it because of the sweetener. At 90% or more I don't find it particularly tasty, so I'm down to adding a little 100% to an occasional cup of coffee to which I'm already adding cream and honey.

Hi Meret - I like the ones with hints of nuts - so the Hacienda las Trincheros (Venezuela), Waslala Superior (Nicaragua) and Caranero Superior (Venezuela). Check his descriptions of the different flavors. You might like more fruity notes.

2531 · January 28, 2012 at 12:07 AM

berries straight from the bush is one of the best treats ever. i remember in my pre-paleo days, we'd pick them in the yard and then make pancakes on weekends. sigh.

4d6aa1a676240b15dc569ff8ade0500f
2531 · January 28, 2012 at 12:04 AM

At one of my local WholeFoods the Scharffen Berger bars were not placed next to all the other dark chocolate bars, they were on a different aisle. I just stumbled upon them by chance and bought one.

i don't love it by the spoonful. though i tried the block of creamed coconut today and it was very tasty!

2531 · January 27, 2012 at 11:33 PM

i guess there's a hint of sweetness to the liver ;-)

2531 · January 27, 2012 at 11:33 PM

i'm really working to like 99 and 100% chocolate. i started mixing some into some heated berries, which is DELICIOUS. now if only i could eat it on it's own...

4d6aa1a676240b15dc569ff8ade0500f
2531 · January 27, 2012 at 11:32 PM

haven't tried the scharffen berger yet -- i usually aim for 90% chocolate and haven't found that they have it. though i think they might have an unsweetened baking chocolate.

4d6aa1a676240b15dc569ff8ade0500f
2531 · January 27, 2012 at 11:31 PM

a friends once had a bacon-themed party: it was uh-mazing. everything from bacon-wrapped figs to dark chocolate-covered bacon. it was like a dream ;-)

2531 · January 27, 2012 at 11:18 PM

well you're more than welcome to say berries. i'm just curious to see what people eat when they're being mindful of carbs, but are wanting something on the sweeter side.

Does that taste sweet to you?

96bf58d8c6bd492dc5b8ae46203fe247
37187 · January 27, 2012 at 10:16 PM

Sorry, for me that's a contradiction in terms. I don't find pure chocolate or nut butter a treat. The closest I can come is a nice fatty forkful of beef.

I gotta go with dark chocolate. My current go-to is Vivani's 85% organic, but I'm eager to try Domori's 100% ... Diane Sanfilippo (Balanced Bites) recently raved about it on Twitter.

Young coconuts... drain the juice into a freezer safe bowl, scrape out the flesh and add it to the bowl and then stick it in the freezer. It becomes like a slushee and the flesh becomes a little chewy. Nom nom.

Scharffen Berger 82% Cacao Extra Dark Chocolate bar is quite good. I bought my first one this past weekend. It's way better than any Lindt bar I've eaten. The Scharffen Berger has a nice fruity complex flavor. Most of the Lindt bars I've even are smooth and not bitter yet kind of flat with no complexity in their flavor.

Hachez 88% Premier Cru Chocolate bar - just a trace of sugar, no fake crap, can be found in speciality stores or on the Chocosphere website (cheapest place for rarer chocolates, including this 100% French chocolate I have heard of but not tasted. Also, I like to have a macadamia nut or two with my bits of chocolate since they are kind of sweet tasting to me too.

I'm into nuts less these days, but on occasion, I still enjoy a few treats:

  1. Almond butter + banana slices + dried cranberries + drizzle coconut milk, warmed up briefly in microwave.
  2. Almond butter + Tbsp. cocoa powder + coconut milk + banana + cup o' ice, in blender until smooth.
  3. Cashews dipped in Artisana's Cacao Bliss.

Any kind of frozen fruit made into "ice cream" by blending it with a little coconut milk in a food processor until it's creamy. Or make an unsweetened (or fruit-sweetened) custard with eggs and coconut milk.

Half a banana and a spoonful of almond butter warmed up is something I will hit up on a rare occasion. I have to be careful with this one as it's one of the few things that can set me off. A little dark chocolate added to this takes it up a notch. Easy and wonderful.
