Is Vegan Chocolate Healthy?
For anyone out there wondering, chocolate can very easily be vegan – and we think it tastes better for the glow up. But is vegan chocolate healthy?

Is vegan chocolate healthy?
It isn’t solely dairy that might not always make a bar of chocolate the healthiest choice. Its sugar content and percentage of cocoa solids have something to do about that too.
But a bar of the right dark chocolate that has no added sugar might be closer to a health-food than you expected. It’s full of flavonoids and antioxidants that can boost cognitive functions and even your mood!
