Christmas is a week from today. What? Yes. A week.

Christmas is the season of joy and merriment. It’s also the season for the assorted chocolate.

There are usually three main types of chocolate contained in an assortment: white chocolate, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate. They are each special in their own way, but dark chocolate is by far the healthiest option. Just keep in mind, though, the higher percent of cacao the more nutritious.

Dark chocolate is considered a “super food” by many. It can improve health and reduce the risk of heart disease. It contains flavanols which can lower blood pressure and improve blood flow. Dark chocolate is also antioxidant-rich, which can help cells protect against the damage caused by the body’s free radicals.

Overall, dark chocolate is amazing for your body, but as with all foods, eat in moderation. The “darker” (higher percent of cacao) the chocolate, the better.

What is your favorite chocolate brand?

Love,

Serena
