New Years Resolutions and Chocolate

First off let me say Happy New Year!

 Now I know that just because its New Year’s some of us have made resolutions to eat healthier. But that  doesn’t mean that we have to cut out our chocolate, right? Recent studies have suggested that if you have a little indulgence now and again you will be more successful in achieving your weight loss goal than if you deprive yourself completely. So if you choose to indulge why not indulge with a piece of chocolate from Cocoa Mill.

 Remember dark chocolate is a dieters chocolate. It is full of antioxidants, endorphins with less fat and less sugar than milk or white chocolate. Studies show that dark chocolate helps to improve cardiovascular health. Dark chocolate is loaded with natural antioxidants (antioxidants are awesome little helpers that gobble up free radicals which are destructive molecules that can be a contributor to heart disease and other ailments) these findings put dark chocolate in the same category as green tea and blueberries. Chocolate comes from cocoa beans which are full of natural plant nutrients. Scientist, doctors and dietitians alike validate dark chocolate and it’s many health benefits. Dark chocolate has the highest percent of cocoa solids which allows it to have such a high antioxidant score. If you add some nuts or dried cranberries to that dark chocolate you’ve got yourself a pretty tasty not to mention healthy power packed little snack.

So in closing I urge you not to go through 2012 deprived but alive and invigorated with the healthful benefits of Chocolate on your side!
