Dark chocolate is not your average sweet. It contains a natural compound that makes blood platelets less likely to stick together. This helps blood flow, promotes normal clotting, and improves circulation. The darker the chocolate, the healthier it is. Sure, eating pounds and pounds of chocolate will cause weight gain, but that's not what I'm talking about. Enjoyed in moderation, it can be incorporated into your daily diet. A one-ounce serving counts as "moderate" and contains around 110 calories. Look for chocolate with at least 70 percent cocoa for the best benefit. Or, if you love chocolate as much as I do, give a shout out if you believe chocolate should be its own food group!!!
