Healthy Foods: Dark Chocolate

Why They're Healthy:

If you need a nibble that feels a bit indulgent, look no further than dark chocolate. Dark chocolate—the stuff with at least 60 percent cocoa content—has been linked to reduced heart disease risk and even lower body fat numbers in people who nibble on it more often. The polyphenol antioxidants in chocolate may favorably influence metabolism.

Quick Tip:

Because dark chocolate has a more intense flavor than the sugar-laden milk varieties, you'll be satisfied with less (say about 1-ounce).
