I think I’ll have some Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate for breakfast. And maybe some chocolate milk instead of coffee.
And then for lunch, I’m going with fruits dipped into a chocolate fondue.
Why? Because I learned yesterday that today’s publication of the European Heart Journal had an article about the health benefits of chocolate – to be specific, they published results of an eight-year German study of 20,000 participants.
The study showed that people who eat one square of chocolate per day (6 grams, or 1/5th of an ounce) reduced their risk of heart attack and stroke by 39%.
Sounds good to me. Maybe I’ll have a slice of devil’s food cake after dinner.
