    85% cocoa Lindt for me. Or EV coconut oil mixed with unsweetened cocoa + stevia. Sometimes I'd throw some all natural almond butter into the mix.

      Chocolate is not a legume. It is a fruit. It has phytic acid, but phytic acid is overblown. It's an issue if the staples in your diet are oatmeal and wheat like most Americans, but we're not consuming 35% daily calories in chocolate. Phytic acid is a very potent anti-oxidant. Like anything else, phytic acid is only a problem if you consume TOO MUCH of it. Small doses of phytic acid seem to be anti-inflammatory and can actually be good for you, especially in a mineral rich Primal diet where heavy metal toxicity is more of an issue than the SAD.

      Phytic Acid: Healthy or Harmful?

      Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

            I just done an Iherb order for 88% chocolate. It was the darkest I could find.

                Check out Francois Pralus; he does a 100% bar, which tastes incredible. I used to order mine from France, which is just across the ocean from me, although I haven't eaten chocolate in about a year.

                    Thanks for nice thread. Chocolate is really useful for people who suffer from depression and who want to balance their emotional state. It really helps me.

                      I usually buy Lindt 90% Dark Chocolate when it's on sale. I sometimes melt it and add almonds, pecans, unsweetened coconut, a bit of dried fruits from time to time, salt and cayenne pepper. Put it in the fridge for it to solidify and eat a piece a day afterwards. Yummy

                        Lindt 85 and 90 are my go-tos: quality, and go on sale frequently.

                          Chocolate bars... Dark and YUMMY!

                          Also... dutched cocoa powder (not bitter like regular)... phytic acid neutralized... suddenly a pretty good source of non-heme iron.
                          And totally DELICIOUS.
                          Win/WIN.

                            My grandfather worked for Lindt so I buy Lindt Excellence 90% cocoa chocolate which is only 14g carbs for the whole 100g bar (not that I eat it all at once). The only other chocolate/cocoa stuff I buy is Hershey's unsweetened cocoa which is horribly expensive here. Just haven't been able to find unsweetened cocoa or unsweetened drinking chocolate at all in my local supermarkets
