Calcium and Chocolate

Chocolate ties up calcium in the body. A lack of calcium is estimated to cause many diseases. I like chocolate soooo... I add sesame seeds to my chocolate cake and carrot shavings from when I make carrot juice. My chocolate cake or cookies are now full of calcium, hopefully more than it ties up.

The bad part is that calcium cancels some of the benefits from chocolate, too. (And calcium ties up iron, too.) I'm trying to address the problem by somehow separating chocolate from milk (not easy).

I've thought of these ways to enjoy chocolate without milk: Chocolate chips. Chocolate chips and peanuts (cheaper than peanut M&Ms, but also yummy). Drinking water with chocolatey things (not as yummy).

And these ways to enjoy milk without chocolate: other flavors of milkshakes (banana, strawberry, and peanut butter are my three favorites). Other flavors of cake that I eat with milk (carrot, spice, Italian creme, and peanut butter are my favorite). Other flavors of cookies to eat with milk (peanut butter, sugar). Cheesecake with no chocolate in it.

I really, really miss chocolate milk, though. I wonder if some kind of carob product would work without tying up the calcium.

I've read that HULLED sesame seeds without their covering do not have oxallic acid to bind up calcium.

I'm currently adding non-instant powdered milk to melted dark chocolate chips sweetened with honey for my sesame-nut-seed refrigerator cookie recipie.
