Once again it is a special time of year when love is in the air. Of course, the lovely holiday is Valentine's Day. If you are shopping for your loved one and they find chocolate irresistible than there is a sweet treat you can give them.
Sometimes, people think just because someone has diabetes they must eat sugar-free treats. First of all, none of the artificial chemically made sweeteners are good for you. If you have diabetes you can have dark chocolate that contains cane sugar, unless you have a food allergy or your blood sugars are out of control. Since Valentine's Day is a special holiday it really is okay to have a very small amount of a sweet treat. After all, this is not something you do every day.
The perfect Valentine's Day treat is a Chocolove rich dark chocolate bar. A smooth, bittersweet Belgian dark chocolate crafted from a blend of Caribbean and African cocoa beans. You will enjoy a slightly sweet and soft flavor which leads you through a full range of sweet, tangy, fruit and roasted flavors. This rich and full-flavored chocolate melts easily in your mouth, leaving a tangy cocoa aftertaste. Also, when you open your Chocolove wrapper you will find a love poem inside. What a sweet treat you can cherish this Valentine's Day.
Dark chocolate has numerous health benefits. Did you know that dark chocolate helps keep your blood vessels healthy and your circulation in excellent condition to protect against complications from diabetes? Yes...and, the flavonoids even reduce insulin resistance by assisting your cells to function normally and also maintain the ability to use your body's insulin efficiently. Dark chocolate is good for your heart and can even help lower blood pressure. What is amazing is that dark chocolate contains theobromine, which has been shown to harden tooth enamel and even suppress coughs. Want a delicious treat that is high in magnesium, potassium, copper, and iron? Dark chocolate is that sweet treat!
Now chocolate does contain phenylethylamine, which just so happens to be the same chemical your brain creates when you feel like you're falling in love.
This Valentine's Day I wish you a day full of love and above all, filled with precious memories that will last a lifetime.
Happy Valentine's Day!
