Love is all around - Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to you all!

Chocolate - it's tasty, makes you feel good, lovely as a gift and there are so many different types that there is definitely a chance that everyone will find one they enjoy!

However this valentines why not try DARK CHOCOLATE? I hear you say what is so good about it? Some of the important things include:

  1. It is an anti oxidant powerhouse, similar to those found naturally in fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains.
  2. Aids lowering blood pressure, improve blood circulation and preventing plaque formation in arteries.
  3. Prevents cholesterol levels increasing.
  4. Even though dark chocolate has the reputation of being sweet it has a LOW GI similar to that of oatmeal. AND those who are diabetic if you go in to your local health food shop they sell chocolates designed especially for diabetics.
  5. Chocolate actually has some vital minerals that you need. - shocking I know!

So when you indulge today don't feel guilty!!

Health & Harmony
