If you’re the same way, try to avoid bringing those products in the house. Or at the least, put them up in high cabinet where they are out of sight. Along the same lines, keep chopped veggies easily visible in the fridge and fruit on the counter so healthy choices are readily available and the first thing you see – we want those to be your default choices! That’s not to say that you should never eat a piece of chocolate or a brownie – moderation is key – but I think we can all agree that it’s best to set up an environment where you make it easy and convenient to choose the healthier options.
Anyway, since I wanted to give away these chocolates rather than eat them myself, I decided I’d surprise someone with a box of chocolates for Day 21 of 25 Days of Christmas Kindness. I was going to the car rental place to get a car for some upcoming holiday travels, and figured I’d surprise the staff there with them. The guy at the counter was so stunned and happy – he talked about how the corporate executives sometimes get gifts, but he was just thinking the other day that no one has ever brought a gift in for them. This went over much better than giving clementines to the grocery cashier last week –although I wish people got as excited about fruit as they did about chocolate.
And to top it off, we got a big upgrade on our car rental – for free, woohoo!
