Chocolates as Healthy Treats

Who says eating chocolates are bad? They are not that evil. Good news! They are safe to eat and they benefit our health! SO, lets rejoice and eat more of the good stuff! But maybe moderation is better.
When picking out for chocolates, remember, be aware, not all chocolates are therapeutic. Choose the pure chocolates, that's where the good stuff are at, the ones mixed with all sorts of preservatives and additives are surely to be sweeter yet less of nutrition.

One important note; chocolates are not the cause of pimples.(Acne are the cause of bad eating habits, a constipated colon, improper facial cleansing, hormone factors and emotional imbalances)

Picking the right chocolate-->Dark chocolate.
At this moment, the only chocolate I know that makes a positive outcome on our health is dark chocolate. So, pick this instead of milk chocolate, as it contains more of the cocoa powder which is actually is the source of goodness.
Those which comes with nougat, caramel or fillings brings along lots of sugar, so choose plain black chocolates.
The caffeine content is low, overdose of caffeine is very much unlikely to occur.
