To Chocolate or Not To Chocolate
With Valentine’s recently passing and Easter right around the corner, tis the season for buying the goodies. What’s a woman’s best friend? No, other than diamonds. That’s right, chocolate! But what it does to the waistline maybe isn’t such a friend. But there are always options.
My absolute favorite brand of health junk food is called Skinny Cow. My husband, who’s all about being healthy, found the ice cream truffles. 100 calorie truffles? Had to be nasty. But I gave it a try and it’s actually pretty good. Taste like normal ice cream. In the candy department, they offer their clusters, which are also to die for.We all love dark chocolate and hear about the benefits, mostly heart. But it offers more. Other than being great for the circulatory system, it helps prevent cancer, is a brain stimulator and it’s suggested that it helps fight coughs. Weird,I know. But who needs to argue with statistics like those? One warning: the darker the chocolate the igher the iron content. But 85% really does taste plastic. Just sayin…
Girls love a good snack, and I’ll be the first to admit that eating chocolate does give great pleasure. But keeping in mind never to overdo it and to be conscience of what we do put in our mouths, this season can be very delectable.
