While watching early the morning news, I was surprised when I heard about this. So I ended up consulting Mr. "Google" to find out if it is true. Well, according to some studies, it is a big YES! So, It is a goodbye feeling of guilt over eating lots of chocolates or reaching just one truffle after meals.
I love dark chocolates, especially the pure 70% dark chocolate of Lindt , but I never knew that it is better than fruits. All I knew was dark chocolate is good for the heart, but I did not know that it has more antioxidants than fruits.
According to some US experts and Scientists, Cacao seeds should be considered as a "Super Fruits" and products derived from cacao seeds extracts, such as natural cocoa powder and dark chocolate as "Super Foods".
It all sounds too good to be true for chocolate lovers, but it doesn't mean we should slow down eating fruits or having fruits on our table. There are nutrients that we need from fruits that the dark chocolate doesn't have. It is still a matter of balancing our food or diet every day.
I suggest Eat a Healthy and Balanced Meal every day.
