Healthy Food #3: Dark Chocolate

Just one-fourth of an ounce daily can reduce blood pressure in otherwise healthy individuals.

Cocoa powder is rich in flavonoids, antioxidants shown to reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol and increase “good” HDL levels.

Quick Tip:

A dark chocolate bar contains about 53.5 milligrams of flavonoids; a milk chocolate bar has fewer than 14.
