I will start this post by saying I have eaten chocolate every single day for at least a decade. Maybe longer, actually. Sometimes it’s a chocolate Vitamuffin. Sometimes it’s a small handful of organic semi-sweet chocolate morsels. Sometimes I go for a Trader Joe’s 100 calorie dark chocolate bar. No matter, I eat my chocolate [...]
