Make sure to eat foods such as oats, berries, nuts and seeds to ensure there is enough fiber in your diet.

Dark chocolate has so many healthy minerals (including iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, zinc and selenium) and fiber. Potentially even more exciting is the abundance of flavonoids (a powerful antioxidant), flavanols (a plant based phytonutrient linked to improved blood circulation and brain function) and serotonin, which helps stimulate endorphin production and support happy moods. So the bottom line is YES! Eat small amounts of good dark chocolate and enjoy not just the delicious flavor, but also powerful health benefits!
Imagine your body is slowly rusting from the inside out. Antioxidants are rust removers, cleaning up vital organs in the body. In scientific terms, antioxidants neutralize cell-damaging free-radicals. Antioxidants are found in many foods, including berries, chocolate and nuts. Eat antioxidant rich food daily to protect your body from free radical damage!
