Recent studies have confirmed that there are health benefits to eating dark chocolate, the darker the chocolate the better. It can lower cholesterol and blood pressure and it is loaded with antioxidants. Of course, the benefits will be overturned if you eat too much. It is recommended that you eat about 1 ounce of dark chocolate per day which is about the size of a small business card if it is sliced thin (150 calories). Also, look for dark chocolate that lists 70% cocoa as the first ingredient.
So this Valentines Day indulge-but just a little :-)
