Feeling Good about Eating Chocolate



I, like so many, love chocolate.  With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, chocolate is on my mind (maybe that is because I don’t have a girlfriend to share Valentine’s Day with, but that is besides the point).  Chocolate can be good for you…

Scientists have reported preliminary evidence recently that cocoa and other chocolates may keep high blood pressure down, your blood flowing, and your heart healthy.  Researchers attribute these health benefits to the compounds call flavonols, which are the flavonoids found in chocolate.  Flavonoids are important because they possess a lot of antioxidant properties.  Antioxidants are important from a health perspective because they protect our body from harmful reactions (free radicals)  that take place inside of our bodies (more specifically at the cellular level).

Excellent!  Chocolate is good for me.  Just don’t over do it.  Remember that over indulging on even the healthiest food in the world would not be healthy.  If you can keep it in moderation chocolate does not even just have to be an indulgence every once in a while, it can be a health addition to your normal nutrition (that could be a great subject for future blog conversations…what do you think?)  Keep in mind that the darker the chocolate, the richer the flavonol concentration.  You still want to stay away from milk chocolate with a lot of refined sugar added into it.  What would you do without Mani’s supplying you with a great source of health benefiting chocolate choices without the refined sugar?

Look at these great chocolate Valentine’s Day special treats (it’s making me hungry).  Happy Valentine’s Day.  Oh yeah, I want to know what your Valentine’s Day chocolate choice was?
