Due to all of it’s amazing health benefits, dark chocolate is one indulgence that we don’t have to feel guilty about! In my holistic nutrition practice, I always tell my clients that a square or two of dark chocolate (70% or higher) a day is not only nothing to worry about, it’s actually a wonderful boost to your mood, your immunity, and your health! If you don’t know all the amazing benefits dark chocolate has to offer, check out our article, The Power of Dark Chocolate!
We are always on the hunt for a high quality, organic dark chocolate that doesn’t taste mealy and isn’t loaded with sugar. So we were super pumped to discover New York-based SweetRiot. We sampled many of their delicious, super healthy chocolate bars, and there’s no doubt, we’re in love! Their 70% dark chocolate bars are just the perfect balance of bittersweetness, and their 85% packs an amazing antioxidant punch for those hardcore dark chocolate lovers. But our absolute favorites are their RiotBars that mix in delicious, super healthy ingredients like quinoa (for a crunchy added protein punch), flax (for some awesome omega-3 and fiber action), and coconut (for some amazing healthy fats that are fabulous for weight loss and digestive health).
Their bars are all Fair Trade Certified, organic, kosher, gluten and dairy free, and they taste amazing. You can order a whole box online, or pick them up at Whole Foods, World Market, Publix, Balducci’s and more!
So next time your sweet tooth rears it’s angry head, put down those cookies, baked goods, and candies, and opt for delicious, potently healthy dark chocolate instead!
