Karina’s Healthy Cooking Tip!
If you feel like you can’t fit anything else in your pantry, because it’s ‘choc’-a-block, think again. There is always room for dark chocolate, once you know the benefits of it.
Listed below are only a snippet of some of the benefits of high quality, high percentile dark chocolate, when consumed in moderation:
- Is high in antioxidants
- May improve brain function
- Is lower in GI than milk chocolate
- Can be lower in sugar than milk chocolate (depending on the percentage of cocoa content)
- Is nutritious
- Is delicious
- Is a natural mood enhancer
So, if you like ‘choc’olate, make sure your pantry can take one more item: dark chocolate, the 80%-99% kind! You don’t want your pantry to be that ‘choc’-a-block, that you can’t store great, high percentile dark chocolate!
Enjoy your dark chocolate in moderation 🙂
