I love Valentines Day because it is just another day for me to spend with my family, not that I should ever need one. I love chocolate but not all chocolate is created equally so I still watch how much I eat.

Dark chocolate provides many benefits such as the ability to lower the risk of heart disease and lower your cholesterol. It can reduce stress and lower your blood pressure. But you have to remember that the sugar is not good for you so that is why Dark chocolate is the better choice of all the chocolates.

All things in moderation!
