Indulge in Chocolate’s Health Benefits with Guilt-Free Pleasure

November 16, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
(Edmonton, November 16, 2007) Chocolate lovers everywhere can now indulge in sweet pleasure – just for the health of it! As author, N.A.I.T. instructor and nutritionist, Victoria Laine explains, the cocoa bean itself (the fundamental ingredient of chocolate) is actually packed with health benefits including antioxidants that improve heart health and help prevent cancers as well as phytochemicals that lift our moods and enhance our brain power. The added refined sugars, harmful fats and processed ingredients are what turn virtuous chocolate into “sinful” junk food. Each of the 40 New Recipes found in Health By Chocolate contain only natural sweeteners, whole grains, good fats and delectable flavor. You’ll also be astonished to discover that many of the quick and easy recipes make balanced snacks and nutrient-dense breakfasts!

John Robbins, best-selling author (Healthy at 100, The Food Revolution, Diet for a New America) writes in the foreword to the book –
“It may surprise you to learn that chocolate is actually good for you. But it’s true. There is a growing body of scientific evidence that chocolate contains a host of heart-healthy and mood-enhancing phytochemicals, with benefits to both body and mind.”

With the Christmas season rapidly approaching, now is the time to arm yourself with entertaining ideas that won’t go straight to your waistline - and Health by Chocolate makes a delightful, delectable and thoughtful gift for all the health conscious people in your life.

A myth has arisen that healthy eating equals deprivation from delicious desserts. Health By Chocolate dispels such myths with factual evidence and carefully crafted recipes. Your first bite of a Health by Chocolate delicacy will renew your confidence in dessert. The proof is in the chocolate pudding.

HEALTH BY CHOCOLATE will be launched this Saturday, Nov. 10th at Organic Roots Food Market (8225-112st. College Plaza Bldg) from 11am-3pm. Please join us for some healthy chocolate samples and to have your book signed by the author.
