Any Chocolate is Good for Your Heart

It has been known for some time that flavanoids in dark chocolate are good for the heart, but it has recently been learned that milk chocolate is good for you too. University of Aberdeen experts have been studying more than 20,000 people. The age group chosen for the study are those in the middle-age group and the elderly. In comparing people who ate no chocolate and those who ate any chocolate, including milk chocolate, those who ate chocolate had 23 percent reduced risk of heart attack and stroke.

The quality of chocolate plays a big role in how healthy it is. Twitter.com caught word from Beneful that if you are consuming a caramel, salted, sugary chocolate bar, for example, the sugar and other ingredients may negate the good quality of chocolate. Try to choose chocolate that has been minimally processed. Cocoa that has been alkalized to reduce acidity has fewer flavanoids than cocoa that has not been. The fat in chocolate is as healthy as olive oil and has not been found to increase cholesterol.

It is important to remember to eat other healthy foods such as apples, cranberries, tea and onions as these also contain healthy flavanoids. Eating anything in excess can lead to health problems so to keep your heart at its healthiest, eat well, the Cleveland Clinic advises.

Why You Should Eat More Chocolate

Everyone would love and excuse to eat more chocolate. And now, thanks to this article, you have one! Not only can you eat more chocolate, but you should. Studies have found that increasing your chocolate intake to a moderate amount can provide many health benefits.

The largest benefit of eating chocolate is the benefit to your heart. Those that consume up to one chocolate bar daily were at an eleven percent lesser risk of having a heat attack, the study showed.

Another major benefit to eating chocolate is a decreased risk of a stroke stated UOL.com. The same study looked at thousands of elderly people– both those who did, and did not, consumer chocolate. It found that those that ate approximately one bar of chocolate per day also had a twenty-three percent lower risk of having a stroke.

Scientists do not know, for sure, that the chocolate itself is what provides the health benefits. Those that consumed more chocolate tended to be younger, have a lower Body Mass Index (BMI), a smaller weight to hip ratio and commit to more vigorious activity.

The study questioned if chocolate provided major health benefits or if those who consumed chocolate were happier and more likely to perform physical activity that would keep them healthy. Avid chocolate lovers would love to believe that it’s the chocolate itself that is keeping them healthy but the happiness that their beloved chocolate brings them just might be what’s causing all of the health benefits.

If nuts can really keep you from getting many different kinds of diseases, as the study suggests, then it will be worth eating them in the end. You’ll be glad that you have have started to eat them.

Donut Sandwich

National doughnut day has come and gone, but the memories and impressions that is has left behind will surely stick around for a while. After all, it seems that typical doughnut flavors may soon becoming a thing of the past. Doughnut shops all over the world would offer an array of chocolate, vanilla, sprinkles, custard filled, you name it! There were always so many options…usually those options just revolved around what type of frosting or sprinkle would grace your donuts.

Well, now it seems the options are getting overwhelming and strange. According to Eater, one restaurant created quite the concoction that hopefully will never be seen again. Philadelphia’s Mac Mart food truck decided to put bacon, and mac and cheese between two donuts! It seems like one of those foods that are so bizarre, you just have to try it. And by try it – hopefully only once before it gets grossly overwhelming. National doughnut day is a good day to get creative chef Steve Murray adds, but other than that I cannot see a mac and cheese bacon doughnut selling. The calories in that thing alone are probably enough to put you over the limit for the day.

So, this doughnut might have been a rare treat for those who love mac and cheese and bacon. For the rest of the people, however, in the world it was probably something that was to be avoided. A bite of one probably wouldn’t kill you though.
