Chocolate, it's a good thing...

Dark Chocolate

(1.5 oz. serving: 230 calories, 13g fat, 30mg sodium, 26g carbs, 1g fiber, 22g sugars, 3g protein = 5 Points)

Why Eat It? Chocolate IS good for you. The rumors are true. The bittersweet stuff has been known to lower high blood pressure, reduce the risk of clogged arteries and blood clots, and prevent heart disease and other ailments. So what makes dark chocolate so much better for you than other types? Higher cocoa content equals more flavonoids (the compounds responsible for all that disease fighting).
