Life is Short, Eat Dessert First!
As the Holidays get closer and closer, we all start to think about desserts…. The questions swirl in our minds!
How will I avoid them to keep my waistline?
Can’t I just have a little piece?
Will I be able to just eat a little or will I totally freak out and eat an entire cake?
The number one question I get is: Can I eat CHOCOLATE?
Wise words come from Ann Wigmore, founder of the Hippodrates Institute:
‘The food you eat can be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.’
So which is chocolate? Can you eat chocolate and be healthy?
The answer is a resounding YES! I can hear your sigh of relief from here 🙂 You can learn about the terrific health benefits of chocolate in our blog post: Can You Eat Chocolate and Be Healthy?.
