Chocolate doesn’t have to be dark and bitter to be considered healthy, although dark chocolate is the healthiest, since it’s chock-full of antioxidants, flavanols, vitamins, and nutrients. “All forms of chocolate stimulate the release of ‘happiness’ neurotransmitters, including serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins,” Scritchfield says. “It’s also rich in plant flavanols, antioxidants, and magnesium, which can help reduce stress.” Just be mindful: Don’t eat the whole bar. A few squares are good if you want to eat it every day, and 1-3 finger-lengths off the bar if you want to indulge every now and then.
