It’s okay to give your hubby chocolate to keep his heart healthy!
I was reading an article from Health.com called Superfoods for your Heart today and was thrilled to find that dark chocolate was mentioned as a way to keep your heart healthy. I don’t know about you, but I can easily convince my husband to eat dark chocolate pretty much anytime of the day or night. In fact I am sure the majority of my friends will agree that their husbands don’t mind eating chocolate.
The article quotes “Several studies have now shown that dark chocolate may benefit your heart, including one in 2012 that found that daily chocolate consumption could reduce nonfatal heart attacks and stroke in people at high risk for these problems. The findings applied only to dark chocolate, meaning chocolate made up of at least 60-70% cocoa. Dark chocolate contains flavonoids called polyphenols, which may help blood pressure, clotting, and inflammation. ”
Quite interesting since we are talking about chocolate.
This makes me feel pretty darn good since I have been feeding my husband and my entire family a cold pressed healthy chocolate for the last five years.
It was simple really. I just made sure to leave out a piece of chocolate for my husband and my kids, morning, noon and night. By eating three to four pieces a day, I could be sure they were all getting enough antioxidants and polyphenol flavonoids. Three little Beyond healthy chocolate Power Squares are 1,740 mg of flavonoids (mg) and a total ORACfn score of 37,374 as certified by ICT. Just one piece is equal to having over one pound of raw spinach! Trust me, it is so much easier to convince your guy, gal or kids to eat yummy dark chocolate instead of a plate full of fruits or vegetables three to four times a day.
Even better, these power squares are just 35 calories, 1 gram of sugar and 1 net carb each making them a good choice for KETO and diabetics!
