Food is more than the sum of the parts. It’s social & pleasurable & definitely to be enjoyed. So let’s celebrate the good news.
I can’t imagine a day without chocolate! Dark chocolate (70-80%) can benefit your healthy gut microbes, key players in your immunity. Regular chocolate eaters were found to have healthy metabolisms & microbes over non-chocolate eaters. Chocolate contains beneficial flavonoids. However, adding milk & sugar diminishes the health benefits.
I’m a fan of coffee. A cup of strong Sumatran beans gets me out of bed. So I am thrilled to read the science that coffee is not the villain it is made out to be. It has beneficial antioxidants, is a proven sports performance aid and in moderation can reduce heart disease risk. I’ll drink to that!
I’m also a fan of butter. Fat has gotten a bad rap. A dollop of butter on peas, olive oil drizzled on broccoli, carrots with hummus, avocado in your salad; will help you absorb the nutrients found in vegetables.
