Today I continued on a healthy streak I've been on this week. I found a tasty blend of organic dark chocolate and organic vegetables: carrots, spinach, broccoli and kale, to be precise. All this, and some dried fruits (raisins, dates and bananas) too -- in the form of a pressed, slightly chewy, chocolate coated bar from Betty Lou's Inc. (McMinville, OR).

This gluten free, vegan, lightly sweetened (with tapioca syrup) bar supplied 15% of my recommended daily allowance for Vitamin A; 10% of Vitamin C; and 8% of Iron -- and a few other nutrients. It hit the spot. I've found that healthier chocolates, with less (or no) refined sugars just seem to taste more satisfying to me. Thanks Betty Lou.
