Healthy Sweets for your Sweetheart

It’s the first day of February and you know what that means!!! It’s the MONTH OF LURVE! People, get ready because it is my mission in life to spread love and happiness to everyone. So to start this mushy month, I’ve come up with a list of some divine (and healthy!) chocolate treats for you and your loved ones! All these items can be found in nearest Healthy Options store. 🙂

Award-winning Bellagio Sipping Chocolates are to the lover of fine chocolate what espresso is to the lover of fine coffee. Immerse your taste buds in this rich, dark bittersweet chocolate dessert drink with its lingering creamy mouth feel. Made with pure ingredients, including 100% pure cocoa powder and chocolate liqueur.

These are great little gifts to give for the little kiddie sweethearts in your life! The Mini Milk Chocolate Sandwich Cookies and the Mini White Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are organic, a good source of calcium and whole grain, and melt in your mouth good. Seven different endangered animals are featured on the cookies and 10% of the profits go to the Jane Goodall Institute to help with their efforts with endangered animal awareness.


Made with ingredients proven to help lower cholesterol. Corazonas are delicious snack foods proven to help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. Corazonas Oatmeal Squares are infused with plant sterols, which are proven in more than 140 clinical studies to help fight heart disease by lowering LDL cholesterol.
Finding unbelievable taste and lowering your cholesterol in the very same bite

I always make sure I have at least 1 bar in my bag when I’m on the go. I especially love their Milk Chocolate Mint and English Toffee variants. It’s all natural, gluten free & made with finest quality ingredients. It has no sugar added but still tastes so good! The secret lies in Maltitol, a natural sweetener derived from wheat that is very low in carbohydrates and calories, yet has 90% sweetness of sugar – perfectly safe for diabetics, too! Since I’m prone to diabetes, this is such a hallelujah product for me!

  1. Hi Patty, if you don’t mind me asking, could you share your dietary “philosophy”/”mantra”/principles? Not necessarily a brand-name like Atkins or Paleo but for starters, are you a vegetarian? Thank you!
