Is chocolate good for you?
Newsflash- chocolate doesn't make you fat! I met a wonderful chocolatier Simone Marie, from Simone Marie Belgian Chocolate who laughs in the face of the North American notion that chocolate makes you fat. She explains to me that in Belgium this is definitely not the mentality.
If there is nothing I love more, it's a balanced lifestyle. I love food and at the same time am a self-proclaimed gym rat. I never want to feel guilty partaking in a well deserved chocolate treat. I can always hope to sweat it out later. So when someone tells me chocolate won't make you fat, you're my new love. Simone Marie goes on to explain that chocolate is good for you, but it has to be good chocolate. None of those added fats and fillers that you get in your average bar. Those certainly don't pass Simone Marie's test.
