Why Chocolate is Good For You

You love chocolate, sure, but did you know that chocolate loves you back? In lots of ways, actually. It’s good for your cardiovascular system, your brain, and your immune system, not to mention all the antioxidant benefits it provides.

To get all the gooey details — and to sample some Kakao chocolates, along with some great wine — make it a point to attend the Chocolate and Wine Tasting event at Local Harvest Cafe on January 19th. My bud Rachel Katz, Certified Health Counselor, and I are planning a great evening of handmade chocolates paired with fabulous wines.

We’ll talk about the history of chocolate, what makes chocolate good, what makes good chocolate, and how chocolates and wine can be part of a ultra-healthy diet. And just in time for Valentine’s day, wouldn’t you like to hear about the aphrodisiac quality of chocolates and fine wines?

Here are the details:

When: January 19, 7pm
