Throughout this website's existence, I've discussed nutrition ad-nauseum. In our society, it's important that people know the RIGHT types of foods they should eat given the high quantity of low quality options we encounter a daily basis.
Another reason, among many, not to eat at fast food establishments. Besides eating too many calories when we are out and nutritional values of fast food is dismal, we intake chemicals, non real food and added colors…. and we wonder why we can’t lose weight. We intake “stuff” our body cannot process therefore screwing up our metabolism. Eat food with ingredients you can pronounce.

Ah February, the month of hearts and chocolate. If you are going to indulge or give your sweetheart chocolates for Valentine’s Day, stick to dark chocolate. Dark chocolate has more benefits for your heart.
Research shows that dark chocolate can help maintain cardiovascular health, provide antioxidant benefits and alleviate stress.
Among other nutrients, heart healthy bioflavanoids (aka flavanoids) are found in dark chocolate and red wine. Romantic right? A perfect combination for Valentine’s Day.
As with anything in life quality matters.
