Having a craving for chocolate and crunchy can be hard to fit into your plan. I bought dark cocoa covered almonds at Target - not the creamy chocolate but powdered cocoa. It satisfied my longing for the chocolate flavor without adding fat. And we all know almonds are good for us. Just be careful how many you eat!

Check out the dark chocolate flavored Cocoa Roast Almonds from the company Emerald. This is a great snack at 150 calories for 1/4 cup of almonds that have a thin coat of dark chocolate powder on them. You can have a chocolate taste without going overboard and get some great healthy fats, protein, fiber, and 35% vitamin E.
While there are other flavors, upon comparing them, the dark chocolate flavored almonds have a LOT less sodium than the other flavors. Plus they have only 6 grams of carbs - 3 of which are fiber. With 8 grams of monounsaturated fats (the best kind) and 6 grams of protein, a 1/4 cup can be filling.
