Oh Man! Chocolate Cravings already!

Hi friends, so I have officially started on Keto.  I really am very full despite not eating that much food today!  That is an important step to get started but now that I have done so, my mouth waters because I am thinking about chocolate.  What is weird is I never crave chocolate until I think I can't have it.  That reminds me of this awesome guy Thomas DeLauer that I watched on YouTube earlier.  He mentioned drinking almond milk with cocoa in it.  Maybe I will try it.  It's a very long video of him shopping in WM.  I am sure you just warm the milk and drink it with cocoa slurry stirred in.

Here is the video here where I believe he mentioned it but it's very long because he is showing you how to shop for keto at Aldi grocery store.
