Dark chocolate is good for health…BUT

30 Aug

Chocolate lovers beam when they hear that chocolate is good for your health. Those who love chocolate and have high blood pressure have all the more reason to smile because the experts have found that the flavonols in the dark chocolate may be a contributing factor in lowering blood pressure.

Not to burst your bubble but they are talking about a tiny sqare of chocolate and we who love chocolate know that we are never satisfied with a teeny-weeny square so why tempt yourself at the risk of gaining weight.  There are lots more stuff out there that is good for blood pressure that does not carry the weight gaining factor.

Try some hot cocoa. Buy a tin of Fry’s cocoa and add milk and a little bit of sugar and cinnamon and you will get the benefits of chocolate without the calories.
