A Little Goes a Long Way….

A little goes a long way…especially in the form of caffeine and chocolate and especially when you are living with food intolerance. Sometimes, you just need a treat, though. For me, it would be chocolate….something that won’t completely kill my stomach yet probably could will if I eat too much of it!

chocolate bliss

Pure gluten-free chocolate bliss.  Thankfully, my husband shared with me. It was the perfect end to a Valentine’s dinner at P.F. Chang’s. It was rich. It was wonderful. And, I could have eaten three of them, but a little goes a long way. Six dollars for a small dome of chocolate bliss kept my portion control in check!

I believe God has given us all things to enjoy, but it is our responsibility to exercise self-control and portion control…especially with food intolerances. I know if I buy a bag of Dove dark chocolate, I am in trouble because I can’t eat just one. Should I be able to stop myself at one? Yes, but I don’t always. We all have our weaknesses. For me, it’s chocolate, baked (gluten-free) goods, and nut butter. I think I could eat an entire jar of almond butter in one sitting, but of course, I don’t!

This verse is a reminder for me that all things are fine in moderation. And with my food intolerances, some things are better for me than others. A little goes a long way!
