72 Nutrient-Dense Recipes For Chocolate Lovers (2)

When it comes to eating chocolate in any form, let’s be honest…

Staring at whatever the chocolate thing is, we’ve all had some sort of inner dialogue that goes…

I’ll just have a bite. But, I could eat something better than this. I really shouldn’t…But I want it SO badly! If I can get through this craving, the craving for raw celery comes next, right?

That’s nonsense! 😛

Done correctly, chocolate treats and desserts can and should be nutrient-dense! Even more nutrient-dense than raw celery! 😉

You should never feel bad for enjoying chocolate… After all, raw cacao is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on Earth! It’s super high in antioxidants, healthy fat, magnesium, and more. In fact, there’s actual science behind why chocolate makes us feel so good!

These nutrient-dense chocolate recipes are chocolate done right! Each recipe is loaded with healthy ingredients. Yet, the ingredients that are usually conventional chocolate’s downfall — refined sugar and processed additives — are happily absent.

Never feel guilty about indulging your chocolate cravings again! Enjoy these 72 nutrient-dense recipes for chocolate lovers!
