Chocolate should be a food group. And, in my professional opinion, it should be the base of the pyramid.
I mean, it is full of anti-oxidants and theobromine. It has been purported to do everything from boost your mood to decrease your appetite. Small studies have found that it is good for your heart, your skin and for diabetes prevention.
I even read that it can help make you smarter.
That is a whole heck of a lot of promises for any food to deliver on.
And to think something healthy was lurking in my love of desserts.
I am pairing it with dried cherries and coconut flakes today for a gluten-free trail mix that is a great sweet treat for the 3pm blues. Or the 10am blues. Or a last minute conference call. We can call this Cherry Cordial Snack Mix an all-occasion snack. But only if you don’t skip the chocolate.
