Good news for chocolate lovers everywhere! Dark chocolate is in fact paleo-friendly. Although, not all chocolate is created equal. Here's what you need to know to find dark chocolate that is just right for the paleo diet.
It may be a bit confusing for some when trying to understand what is and isn't allowed on the paleo diet. While some strictly abide by only eating food they believe were readily available to our cavemen ancestors, others follow the diet much more loosely and solely aim to avoid overly processed foods. How ever you may decide to practice being paleo, you can rest assured that you are still able to enjoy a bit of dark chocolate now and then!
The key to paleo-friendly dark chocolate is the dairy! You're going to want to look at the ingredients very carefully to make sure there is no dairy in your dark chocolate. Once you find yourself a dairy-free dark chocolate, the next thing you want to do is take a look at the percentage of cacao. The Paleo Foundation recommends that you select the dark chocolate that has the highest percentage of cacao. If your chocolate is able to pass those two tests, all that is left is for you to enjoy! With health benefits such as providing the body with plenty of antioxidants and aiding blood flow, who wouldn't want to treat themselves to a bit of dark chocolate every now and then, or every day?
