Chocolate is a Beauty Food!

Chocolate is loaded with flavonoids due to its cocoa content. The darker the chocolate, the higher the cocoa content.

Flavonoids are antioxidants found in plants. They give us the beauty benefit of fighting destructive free radicals that cause our skin to sag and wrinkle prematurely.
Only 1 ounce of chocolate per day is recommended even though you may want to eat the whole delicious bag! 

Dove dark chocolate is especially good for you because Mars has patented a process called "Cocoapro". This causes Dove's Dark Chocolate to retain more of its healthy cocoa flavonoids. I believe it is genetically modified cocoa though.

Have a Yummy Food Day!
