In some camps the health benefits of avocados put the “alligator pear” at the top of the list.
And of course, what would we do without the latest super food, king kale?
Somehow I’ve managed without.
Each 100 gram portion of this vegetable contains 200% of the RDA for Vitamin C, 300% of the RDA for Vitamin A, 1000% of the RDA for Vitamin K1, not to mention large amounts of 2 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein, Vitamin B6, potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper and manganese.
Holy hubris! With only limited quantities of food consumption humanly possible on a daily basis, what’s a hungry, health-conscious diner to do?
Dark chocolate, mind you, if you’re truly interested in reaping the health benefits of this super food.
Step aside king kale.
Chocolate is high in fiber, iron, magnesium, copper and manganese, not to mention loaded with more antioxidants (those mighty molecules getting a lot of press for slowing aging and reducing the risk of cancer) than equivalent quantities of pecans or artichokes or elderberries, kidney beans, cranberries, blackberries or cilantro; at least according to my sources.
I’ve decided another guilt trip is in order. Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Timing is everything. Then again, who needs an excuse when it comes to enjoying this sinfully delicious super food.
