I love dark chocolate. I also believe that the world would be a much more peaceful place if everyone were mandated a daily dose of chocolate. I make sure I eat my dose daily.
I just returned from 2 weeks in France. In the absence of any workout facilities to try I thought I’d focus on exercising my taste buds. I envisioned daily tastings at various chocolatiers. Unfortunately for me I only came across two: La Maison Du Chocolat & Jean Luc Pele (known for his macarons as well). Both offered delicious artisinal chocolates. My favorite piece from La Maison was dark chocolate filled with lemon. At Jean Luc Pele I had dark chocolate covered salted carmel mmm mmm mmm it was good. I have no doubt everything in both of these shops is amazing and highly encourage you to visit (or order online) and taste away.
Rarely does a day go by where I don’t eat dark chocolate. I thought I would share with you a few of my favorites. I still have many more left to try.
Trader Joe’s Mini 70% Dark Chocolate Bars – 100 calories each. I love them because they are individually wrapped (portion control)
Chocolove Almonds & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate – Great because the almonds add some extra protein making it that much more healthy
B.T. McElrath Salty Dog Bar – Perfect balance of chocolate and coarse salt. It also comes in little bite size packages.
Dark Secret Chocolate – 30 Day box as it makes you feel like you have to eat it. Also great in that it is individually portioned. In case you can’t tell I need that 🙂 If you don’t believe me maybe Oprah’s endorsement as one of her favorite things will sell you on them.
In addition to your daily vitamins I strongly suggest dark chocolate. You can thank me later and share with me your favorites.
