The Dietitian’s Top Pick: Nestlé® Toll House® Dark Chocolate Morsels
|
Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate Morsels #festfoods I love Valentine’s Day. There’s something about all the red, pink, hearts, flowers, cards and chocolates that makes me so happy. Another thing that makes me very happy is that dark chocolate has some pretty great health benefits. Dark chocolate is also known as “bittersweet” or “semisweet” chocolate and contains a higher percentage of cocoa solids and minimal added sugar. The higher the percentage of cacao (or cocoa solids), the darker (and more healthful) the chocolate! This week’s pick, Nestlé® Toll House® Dark Chocolate Morsels, is packed with flavanols, which are found in the cocoa solids. Flavanols have been shown to have antioxidant effects, and also help lower blood pressure and improve heart health. Do your heart a favor, and savor a piece of dark chocolate! Looking for a delicious and guilt-free sweet treat? Set up a fondue station by melting these dark chocolate morsels and dipping your favorite fruit! Click on the video below to learn how!
