I am addicted to these bars! They are amazing and I eat them every day. I buy chocolate and matcha by the large box. Thank you for making something that tastes amazing and has all healthy ingredients! Love them.
I wasn't sure what to expect for these, but they are actually pretty good. I am vegan and usually buy vegan carob and vegan vanilla. My husband also likes these flavors, and he's not always a fan of these kinds of bars. I'm on my second box and have these set up for auto delivery now.
If you love healthy treats, you should give Rawmantic bars a try. I have Fitness bar almost every day before gym. It gives me the energy I need to keep feeling strong throughout my workout.
These are the BEST protein bars ever! So fresh, so delicious AND completely healthy. I'm a customer for life :)
Healthy Chocolate... Too good to be true?
Chocolate, but make it healthy. It's what dreams are made of for chocolate lovers everywhere, but is it possible that chocolate could actually be healthy?
We won't make you wait until the end to get the answer. The answer is: YES!
Since cocoa beans are found in nature, they are in and of themselves considered to be heart-healthy food. Now, before you go grab your favorite chocolate brand and go to town, it's worth reminding you that in its natural state, chocolate has healthy qualities, but oftentimes when produced into the chocolate we all know and love, it quickly becomes unhealthy.
As with any food, it's important to read the ingredient list found on the back label of the item to understand what has been modified or added to the natural chocolate to determine whether the chocolate could still be considered healthy or not. This is commonly where you will find added sugar (even cane sugar is something to be on the lookout for) and other flavors altering the chocolate from its natural state.
Fun fact: since chocolate in its natural state is considered to be a heart-healthy snack, it can actually aid in lowering your blood pressure.
A few things to keep in mind as you are reading the label to determine if it is healthy chocolate:
Examine the cocoa percentage. Cocoa, unlike chocolate, is lower in sugar and often the number one indicator that chocolate is on the healthier side. Grabbing chocolate with 70% cocoa or higher contains fiber, iron, magnesium, copper, and manganese.
Examine the grams of sugar. As mentioned above, most produced chocolate has added sugar and the amount of sugar added is a great indicator of whether the chocolate is healthy or not. Oftentimes, the dark the chocolate the lower the sugar. However, even among dark chocolates, consider comparing the grams of sugar to be sure you're making the best choice.
Examine whether the chocolate is plant-based or gluten-free. These two markers help identify the care with which the chocolate was curated for those with specific diets. You may also find that these healthy chocolate options contain less sugar than their counterparts.
The news that chocolate can be healthy is exciting and it's important to begin making mindful changes as you explore healthier chocolate products.
Some of our favorite ways to use healthy chocolate instead of overly produced chocolate are:
Chocolate covered strawberries, pineapple, apples, or any other fruit that you already love
Adding sea salt to either a bar of milk chocolate or a dark chocolate bar is a great way to give the healthy chocolate a rich flavor
Use a mixture of healthy chocolate and other chocolate in your next recipe. This will help your taste buds get used to the higher cocoa percentage while still experiencing the refreshing taste of chocolate that you love.
Researches are continuing to uncover health benefits related to quality chocolate, such as:
Healthy chocolate is a powerful source of antioxidants. Antioxidants help reduce the risk of disease in your body. So we're not saying the chocolate is the answer to everything, but it sounds like it's pretty close.
Healthy chocolate may improve your blood flow and lower your blood pressure. Next time your doctor runs a test and asks if you've been stressed at work, you can let them know you'll be sure to incorporate more organic cacao chocolate into your diet.
Healthy chocolate may also reduce the risk of heart disease. One study of over 470 older men found that incorporating healthy chocolate into your diet 2-3 times a week lowered the risk of heart disease by 50% over 15 years. Again, we're not saying chocolate solves everything, but these facts are hard to beat!
Healthy chocolate may protect your skin from sun damage. So if you're headed on a beach vacation soon, dip your favorite fruit in melted healthy chocolate for an increased ability to protect your skin from the sun. Whoever said sunscreen was the only thing to protect your skin from the sun obviously has never heard of the superpowers of our new best friend healthy chocolate.
Healthy chocolate may help improve brain function. If you're like most of us, you're often plagued with an afternoon foggy brain, try eating a spot of dark chocolate in the afternoon to clear up any residual brain fog. Besides, the little jolt of sugar will help get you through a typical afternoon slump.
Those amazing five benefits are only the beginning. We are confident that as the word about healthy chocolates begins to spread even further, researchers will uncover even more benefits to this superfood.
Seems to us that incorporating healthy chocolate into your diet 2-3x a week offers amazing health benefits beyond just a yummy taste in your mouth.
A good rule of thumb when searching for a healthy chocolate option is the darker the chocolate the better.
If you're not ready to fully plunge into the healthy chocolate game, incorporate dark chocolate with a milk chocolate bar to begin to adjust your taste buds to this different taste. However, we are confident that you will acquire a taste for dark chocolate and enjoy the many health benefits that come along with it.
As you search for healthy chocolates on the internet or in-store, remember, it's important to read the label and fully understand all of the ingredients that the chocolate contains. If there is an ingredient that you are unable to pronounce, generally speaking, that's a good indicator that it's not something you want inside your body.
We hope you enjoy experimenting with a new kind of chocolate and not only enjoy the rich flavors that dark chocolate has to offer, but also experience the many health benefits that come along with healthy chocolate. Eat more chocolate friends, after all, it's good for your blood pressure, brain, and heart. What's not to love about it?
