Don't poison your Valentine with these chocolates!

It feels like the holidays just got over, but the "Holiday Death Aisle" is BACK… and this time we are bombarded with store shelves filled with red, pink and white junk and pretty heart-shaped boxes filled with toxic chocolates by brands like Russell Stovers, Godiva, and Hallmark. 

Take a look at the ingredients in these Valentine's Day chocolates and you'll quickly realize that they're just selling cheap ingredients wrapped up in fancy-looking packages. Why would you give your Valentine a "gift" filled with heart-wrecking partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors derived from petroleum, nasty preservatives, artificial flavors, GMO oils, sugar from GMO Roundup-Ready sugar beets, and the absolute worst ingredients you can put in food?
 
Let's be real here – eating chocolate on occasion is absolutely an okay treat – but consideration needs to be made when choosing how to get your fix. Chocolate can provide a daily dose of much needed antioxidants or it can be a chemistry experiment full of man-made artificial ingredients. The key is to only choose treats that are both sweet AND nutritious. That way you'll satisfy your cravings but still get a dose of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Eventually you'll develop a distaste for processed refined sugars and your desire for ultimate nutrition will become instinctive.
 
This new recipe for my Five-Minute Creamy Chocolate Mousse is lightening-quick to make and MUCH healthier than eating a few Valentine's Day chocolates (and actually more delicious than those chemical-filled things anyway)!
 
Here are some more DELICIOUS treats to make for your kids and loved ones for Valentine's Day that won't sabotage their health...
If you know anyone who would love these recipes, please forward this email to them. Let's spread the word that we can still enjoy dessert without unhealthy processed ingredients!
