Sweets are always the first to go when the new year hits, but why? If you completely cut treats from your life, you’re just setting yourself up for failure. Inevitably, that chocolate craving will kick in, and you’ll want to eat more sweets than you should, pushing you back to square one.

You can still enjoy these delicious treats in increments, and there are also healthier options!

Sugar-Free Chocolates

You can get an assorted box of sugar-free chocolates to help satisfy your chocolate cravings without the guilt.

When you eat sugar-free chocolates, you give your body extra vitamins, proteins, fiber, and antioxidants which help improve your mood. The assortment of nuts and fillings also provides benefits to the body.

Sugars typically require more time to metabolize and can be turned into fat for your body. When you eat sugar-free chocolates, you can help limit weight gain while also enjoying the anti-inflammatory and circulatory benefits cacao is known for.

Dark Chocolate Choices

Dark chocolate is the healthier option when compared to milk chocolate, since it has fewer added sugars and a higher percentage of antioxidant-rich cocoa solids. Dark chocolate is loaded with nutrients and vitamins that positively affect your heart health. 

Stefanelli’s has many choices, so you can still enjoy chocolate while on your weight loss journey.

One of our most popular choices is dark chocolate pretzels. This pairing gives the bittersweet taste of dark chocolate a delicious crunch with the salty pretzel. Another option you can enjoy is dark chocolate nut bark in almond or mixed nut. Each variety offers a good protein boost along with healthier unsaturated fats. Lastly, dark chocolate melt-a-way offers the full health benefits of dark chocolate. Just pop them in your mouth and slip into the joy of melting chocolate.

Incremental Chocolates

You don’t have to be ashamed if you are still experiencing chocolate cravings! You can consume your favorites in smaller portions and enjoy the excellent taste. 

Having a single piece of sponge candy isn’t going to ruin your New Year's transformations completely. Limiting yourself to one piece can be enough to satisfy yourself and continue your better habits. You can make the treat healthier by purchasing the dark chocolate variety. Some chocolate is better than no chocolate!

Chocolate-covered almonds are a healthy option to have dipped in milk chocolate. Almonds are packed full of heart-friendly unsaturated fats, fiber, vitamin E, and have the highest calcium content of any nut. Eating chocolate-covered almonds can make the healthy experience even more delicious. 

Lastly, you can indulge yourself with chocolate-covered strawberries. They are rich in vitamin C, and other antioxidants that your body so craves! These juicy fruits are covered in our decadent chocolate and will provide a healthy perspective to indulgence.

Don’t let the new year keep you away from delicious sweets while you are trying to make healthy choices. Stefanelli’s has a wide range of options for you to choose from, so don’t delay! You can still satisfy your hankerings, just know the limits and which types of treats are more conducive to your dieting and fitness goals.
