Now how does chocolate and eating right fit together? It can in small amounts :), especially if it is dark chocolate!
Dark chocolate compared to milk or white chocolate contains a higher percentage of cocoa, which brings along healthier fats, less sugar, more protein and more antioxidants. There actually quite a few good reasons to eat dark chocolate:
- lowers you blood pressure
- lowers LDL cholesterol (LDL=bad cholesterol)
- will increase your mood via the natural "anti-depressant" serotonin
