There have been many times when I've eaten what is now called a keto diet. When I was a teenager they said it would kill me. I never did go for the high starch and sugar diet that was heavily promoted to replace fat in the 70s and 80s.

Most of the stuff I've seen on chocolate, is good quality dark chocolate without so much sugar. A lot of milk chocolate just filled with sugar and oils , and they really skimp on the most expensive ingredient, which is cocoa.

My gluttony knows no bounds, when I've been working hard and it's cold outside. When I was a teenager and in my twenties, people told me that I would be extremely fat by the time I'm 30. I'm 55 and still haven't gotten to where they said I would. So I'm going to continue binging on greasy steak and gobbling dark chocolate whenever the opportunity arises.

I noticed recently news go by not to buy Romaine Lettuce due to some bad guy lurking in it - E-coli I believe. All the more reason to build a hugel bed and grow your own! That said, I do adore dark chocolate, and it won't grow in my zone...sigh...
Just another reason also to get to know your local farmer. I had an eye exam today. I need to replace the lens' in my most-used pair due to accumulated trauma. When the lens' are in, I'm to bring our farm fresh eggs and a few frozen chickens for my eye doctor. Works for me.

I have always said that about eating Vegan or being a Vegetarian; the number or meat recalls to produce recalls is absolutely astounding. No thank you, statistics are on my side!

As for chocolate: I live in a house with all women (a wife, 4 daughters, and all the pets are girls too), it is its own food group here!
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry. I wrung this tiny ad and it was still dry.
