Raw chocolate bites – gluten free, dairy free, refined-sugar free
If you’re anything like me then you’re hugely addicted to chocolate. I have the biggest sweet tooth known to man. So much so my family call me the chocolate monster. Oopsy. But you don’t need me to tell you that eating chocolate in excess can pose many health problems. Especially if you opt for the store-bought variety – as the sugar content is so high. This is not ideal for the summer bod! And increasingly worrisome if you consider the potential health risks associated with eating refined sugar.
