This next item is one of my all time FAVORITES to keep my weight maintained. These chips trick my brain into thinking I’m getting chocolate. Carob chips can be substituted for chocolate chips. Carob is an evergreen flowering shrub that is native to the Mediterranean region. What makes carob chips so incredible is that they are 1/3 the calories of chocolate chips, lower in fat, no caffeine and they are even sweeter than chocolate without the added sugar. Can you say O.M.G!!! This is a must have in my kitchen.
Carob chips can be found at: Whole Foods Market next to the baking chocolate and Fresh and Natural.
