Every Valentine’s Day, Americans spend nearly $2 billion on candy (CNN). That’s a lot of money spent on insane amounts of sugar, carcinogenic synthetic sweeteners, artificial colors and flavors, and countless other harmful chemicals and ingredients! This Valentine’s Day, try kicking this unhealthy habit and celebrate the day with sweets that are healthy for you and the environment!
When it comes to satisfying your sweet tooth, pick organic and free trade dark chocolate! Dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants, which decrease blood pressure and the risk of future heart disease. Decreased stress and an increased metabolism are other perks of eating a moderate serving of dark chocolate daily. That means you can still have your Valentine dark chocolate covered strawberries and treats while also improving your health and happiness at the same time!
