The Truth About Chocolate

Oct 20, 11 The Truth About Chocolate

OMG, chicas, have you heard about this? It is now officially healthy to eat chocolate! YEESSS!! Pardon us, but we are giddy with excitement (and perhaps a little too much celebratory chocolate). Allow us to explain: a Swedish study has recently found that chocolate consumption helps decrease the risk of cardiovascular diseases – including strokes – in women. Now, before you go reaching for the jumbo bag of Chocolatinas Jet, be aware that just because chocolate has some healthy properties doesn’t mean you can binge on it like there’s no tomorrow. It still has a lot of fat and sugar, so you don’t want all those calories to pile up. The recommended amount is around 45 grams a week – about as much as two candy bars. Also keep in mind that dark chocolate has more cocoa and less sugar than milk chocolate, so it’s better for you. That means you can now drink up all of that delicious hot chocolate abuela makes for breakfast, guilt-free! In fact, you have to. For the sake of your health.

  1. I have to thank you for the efforts you have put
    in penning this blog. I am hoping to check out the same high-grade content from
    you later on as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities
    has inspired me to get my own, personal blog now ;)

  2. Another good thing about playing on the web is you could play without money should
    you choose. Another basis for poker’s extreme
    popularity is the element of skill involved and
    the thrill of placing your mad poker skills against that relating to other
    enthusiasts which team you might otherwise never get to play against.
    One of the dealer’s two cards will be placed face-up available so all the gamers
    can easily see it, and the other card is going to be placed face down.
