Benefits of Chocolate

You know from my blogs that I am a big believer of everything in moderation.  I eat dessert every day.  My serving sizes are very small, maybe 100-200 calories, but I enjoy every second of eating it.  If you make good choices the rest of the time, you can always fit chocolate into your life.  In fact, there are even benefits to eating chocolate.

Good for your heart- studies show that a small amount of dark chocolate each day with a healthy diet can reduce cholesterol and lower blood pressure.

Good for your spirit- it stimulates endorphins and gives you pleasure

Helps you look young- the antioxidants reduce free radicals that can damage cells

Those reasons are good enough for me to fit chocolate in my life.  Enjoy your life in moderation.
