Sometimes, we can’t help ourselves when it comes to chocolate. So in order to avoid going way overboard, try looking for chocolate with a higher cocoa, which leaves less room for sugary additives and more room for healthy antioxidants. (We recommend looking for 70 percent cocoa or higher). Want to try a new treat? Try raw chocolate, a dairy-free form with a strong, natural taste.

The Takeaway: Opt for chocolate with at least 70 percent cocoa to avoid excess sugar.
