February is chocolate month! With Valentine’s Day and American Heart Month, it makes perfect sense to incorporate chocolate in to your diet. A daily dose of good, organic, dark chocolate is just what the doctor ordered. Chocolate is good for lowering cholesterol and blood pressure and it’s a potent antioxidant. The darker the better. If you tend to shy away from dark chocolate, you must try Sweet Riot. It’s one of the tastiest dark chocolate bars I’ve ever had.
Sweet Riot is not only delicious, it’s also organic, fair trade and vegan. Sweet Riot is made with Latin American cacao and is super rich in antioxidants! The artwork on the packaging is from emerging artists; and I love that is’s just a small NYC based company of only 5 women. You can find Sweet Riot at Whole Foods and Kroger stores across the country or visit their website www.sweetriot.com.
From now until the end of this month, you have a chance to win a case of Sweet Riot’s 70% dark chocolate bars. Visit Sweet Riot’s Facebook page and hit like and make sure to follow them on Twitter too! Let me know on my FB page, twitter or here on my blog, when you have. And, please feel free to share with me some of your favorite times to indulge in a square of dark chocolate, as well as any great recipes you have. I love sprinkling Sweet Riot’s cocoa nibs on my greek yogurt or my oatmeal with some berries or dried fruit for a sweet treat for breakfast.
