Dark rich sweet antioxidants

It’s no secret that women love chocolate. Some say it’s better than sex. But did you know that it has eight times the antioxidants of strawberries, and that dark chocolate can even help lower blood pressure? Dark chocolate as part of balanced diet can help to reduce bad cholesterol, too.

So don’t deny yourself if you love it. But remember to eat only about 100 grams, or a quarter of a dark chocolate bar, if you are watching your weight. One popular and affordable brand of dark chocolate we like is Nestlé Noir.
Each individual wave-like shaped piece has been formed to complement the palate and optimize the zones of contact and heat transfer points in the mouth. This influences the chocolate’s melting point and consequently the perceived texture, as well as flavour and aroma release. This makes a little go a long way, which is key to getting all the benefits and pleasure from good chocolate without over-indulging.

Nutrition to go

100 caloriesIf you like something do you eat the whole thing? I admit, I sometimes do. That is why I am big on portion control and keeping things I love in a safe place — like out of my house. Most things are safe around me; I am not a binge-eater. But certain things at certain times of the month call my name; I prefer they do it from down the street or across town. Or if they are in the house, they had better be in tiny little bags. I know I could rip open all the tiny treats and eat them, but I usually won’t.

That’s why Nestles Cranberry Raisinets are such a good idea. The 100-calorie bag of tart, antioxidant-rich berries in milk chocolate is perfect for a snack attack. I think of it as mitigating disaster.
