Sweet Tooth?

Don’t worry. Chocolate is a food group. And these Choconut Date Bites have organic cocoa powder. carob chips, and shredded coconut to satisfy your sweet tooth. Be sure to indulge in your sweets and carbohydrates in the evening to avoid sugar crashes during the day. Think about it, our ancestors woke up early and hunted, essentially training. They were preparing for the evening feast, which would often include carbohydrates such as fruits and berries gathered during the day. Let’s remember in a more modern day, sugar and chocolate were associated with wealth and was unobtainable to the common folk. What also was associated with wealth?… Gluttony and obesity.  So, I say eat chocolate and be rich. Just make sure to get the good stuff and THE REAL STUFF. Stay away from the drug store candy bars.
