It goes without saying that I LOVE CHOCOLATES!❤ But its even more special when you discover whole new flavours and twists in chocolate variants! 😋 I recently tried 6 chocolates by @devilyou13 and they are are sinfully delicious.
They have a wide range of classic and unique flavours. Also, they posses quite interesting names! Here are the ones I tried:
🍬Fruit Fantasy Blueberry
Their chocolate is mostly dark and with just the right amount of sweetness, which is quite difficult to find in homemade chocolates. But I personally liked their white chocolate variants more(last two in list). Motichoor masti was my favourite of all, as it had a filling of motichoor laddoo in between white chocolate! Never tried before and it was such a great combination. It was extremely pleasing to my taste buds!
I also loved their Packaging. It was very nicely gift wrapped which makes it a great gifting option and in budget! Because these chocolates are very affordably priced(swipe left to see prices) and they deliver across India! They reached me in perfect condition and did not melt even during the hot Indian summers! I am quite impressed and would definitely recommend trying them out, especially Motichoor Masti!
✨Recipe Below!! Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Chips✨⠀
Within the last week I have tried garlic parmesan zucchini sticks AND chips. And I have to say that these chips worked out 100% better! Because they are flat, the mixture stays on each chip and doesn’t fall off during baking. These also turned out perfectly crispy and crunchy thanks to the added bread crumbs. The flavor and texture makes me feel like I’m eating a treat when it’s really just a veggie! 😋⠀
I found this recipe on foodnetwork.com and just added garlic to the mixture since the recipe didn’t call for it.⠀
This is how I made mine:⠀
1. Preheat oven to 450⠀
2. Slice one zucchini into rounds, about 1/4 inch thick.⠀
3. Toss zucchini in 1/2 TBSP olive oil ⠀
4. In a separate bowl, mix 1/4 cup bread crumbs, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese and garlic, salt & pepper to taste.⠀
5. Dip each zucchini round in the mixture and place evenly on a baking tray sprayed with cooking oil.⠀
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes⠀
FOR YEARS TOP SCIENTISTS HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR THE ANSWER...I'm here to tell you that answer. Is Halo Top ice cream ACTUALLY good for you?🤔🤔 ----
Sadly, NO. Well, kind of. It's not AS BAD for you like most Ice cream brands. But is it an option for people trying to lose weight? I would say no. This particular flavor has 17g of carbs PER SERVING with only 5g protein...not terrible? Actually it is. Because there's FOUR servings in this tiny container. Not to mention 90 calories PER SERVING...eating one of these tiny containers is 360 calories!! Now I love Halo Top. I can devour a whole container in minutes. But there goes 68g of carbs and only 20g of protein, barely enough for a full serving even after eating FOUR servings of the ice cream. Compared to other Ice cream's nutrition facts, Halo Top is fairly lower in carbs and higher in protein. So can it be used in everyday dieting? No. It's nutritional value make it more of a cheat meal. Yes even the "healthy" ice cream should be used as a cheat meal if your goal is to lose weight. So, Halo Top should not be considered "good" for you, if your body composition goal is to lose fat. If that is your goal; you should be having a serving of protein in every time you're eating. You would have to eat this whole container to achieve that, but along with that you'll receive over 60g of carbs that will most likely be stored as fat because let's be honest, most people like ice cream before bed. Just protein based snacks like cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, or a protein shake are my go-to's when it comes to before bed snacks.💪😋
Here is one of my favorite morning treats that literally takes less than 3 minutes to create!
There is no cooking time whatsoever and a great carb loader to fuel your day; along with serving of fruits, fiber, protein and even omega-3 fatty acids.
The best part?....nearly endless options and variations to conjure! Whether you enjoy fruits, nuts, granola or almond butter, the sky’s the limit for your creative combinations 🤯 below is one of my favorite combos to try.

• Step 1: Mix in Nutmilk, chia seeds, almond butter and honey into a mason jar or small cup/bowl. Stir a few times, the almond butter doesn’t have to mix in completely (swirls and chunks are encouraged, as well as a pleasant burst of flavor) 🕓: 1 min.

̃ ☞ 📝 Tips/Benefits:
• You can also try adding some of your toppings in ‘Step 2’; I usually make sure they are diced and/or thinly sliced to maintain a texture balance.
• Although other milk variations like almond and coconut milk work just fine, the thick and rich texture of Nutmilk works best for me.
• Benefits: Silk Protein & Nut Milk is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, peanut-free, soy-free, vegan / plant-based, and vegetarian. ̃
