I absolutely love dark chocolate and let myself have it at least once per week as a treat. The key is just to make sure you’re choosing dairy-free, 80% or higher dark chocolate, that is organic and GMO-free. When it comes to sweeteners, opt for a natural choice (dates, stevia, etc) instead of white sugar and enjoy!
