Dark Chocolate is Good for the Heart & Soul

Dark Chocolate is Good for the Heart and Soul

The month of February is one I look forward to every year. Why? You might ask. Because, I can get my favorite dark chocolate bars at half their normal price due to Valentine’s Day.

Look at all the choices, there’s something for every mood. Whether I want a little something to sooth my soul or just want my normal daily dark chocolate allocation, I have options. My usual practice is to break a bar into its individual squares and enjoy one or two pieces at a time.

I selected Peppermint in Dark Chocolate, Orange Peel in Dark Chocolate, Cherries & Almonds in Dark Chocolate and Raspberries in Dark Chocolate at 55% cocoa content. According to my rankings, these are all in the fun but still better for you than a decadent treat category and it’s amazing how satisfying two little squares can be.

Then there’s the higher cocoa content bars, like the Ginger Crystallized in Dark Chocolate bar and the Rich Dark Chocolate bar at 65% cocoa content or the Extra Strong Dark Chocolate bar at 77% cocoa content. These I put in the healthy category.

Eating dark chocolate provides energy, fat, minerals and antioxidants to help maintain our overall health. It also provides a variety of minerals including iron, magnesium, copper and manganese. These are essential for proper functioning of the immune system as well as nerve and brain function. Dark chocolate is also good for healthy bones in addition to blood and heart health. Enjoy dark chocolate in moderation.

“Kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.” Proverbs 16:24, NLT
