Tips from Food Network’s Claire Robinson & DOVE Chocolate Basket Giveaway (WINNER ANNOUNCED)

1 Flares Filament.io 1 Flares ×

Congratulations to Janet W.!

With the new year always comes new goals. Those goals can be working out more, eating better, eating more chocolate..okay so that last one is a personal one for me. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and give up on the goals before you even really started them (unless it’s the eating chocolate). I had the chance to ask Food Network star and celebrity chef, Claire Robinson, a few questions on making your goals a little easier for 2012. Check out what she had to say:

Thanks for sharing those great tips Claire, I know they will come in handy for me!

Now for the fun part. A great way to keep some of those goals of working out is to reward yourself. What better way to reward yourself than with silky dark chocolate. I love me some dark chocolate, the more cacao, the better. Thanks to Dove Chocolate you can reward yourself with some goodies after all your hard work, or after eating right all day treat yourself to a treat!

WIN IT:

One (1) lucky reader will win a gift basket full of Dove goodies. That’s a lot of rewards!

    I think rewarding myself with Dove dark chocolate after a workout is a great idea. I love chocolate and never thought of using it as an incentive to workout.

    I like the idea of making 2 chickens (or whatever for that matter), to have enough the next day without having to cook again.

    The tip I liked and will try to incorporate is to have the kids see what ingredients can do in the kitchen. I like this tip and it will also help me spend more time with the kids and teach them while I am at it.

    Thanks.

    Setting a goal to reward my myself with Dove Chocolate after I work out at the gym is what I can incorporate into my life in 2012!

    We reward the kids when they reach a goal – I like that idea. I can set attainable goals that can be rationalized away on a given day. A little dove chocolate reward might just be the trick to find the workout time afterall.

    Rewarding yourself when a goal is met. For me, when I eat a healthy meal, I allow myself to indulge in a piece or two of good dark chocolate.

    I really like the idea of the reward system. When cooking for your family, I really like the idea of leading by example. When I was growing up in a family with six children, we knew that we had to eat what was put in front of us. Also, if we didn’t get some of the food the first time that it went around that it might not be there the second time.

    Reward yourself when you make your goal. That would really help, otherwise I might not do it! LOL

    I like her tip of rewarding yourself when you attain a goal. I would have no trouble rewarding myself with chocolate. I will try to stick to the dark chocolate so that I can get the health benefits of the flavonoids.

    Aside from the reward system, i think one of the most important point, i’ve gotten from this video, is to watch my portions!
