Life is sweet at home

Marla’s Musings

I was going to put out our newsletter last week but it was National Procrastination Week. It worked out any way because now this week is American Chocolate week. As you can tell from the picture, I like chocolate. That’s an Egyptian Black Forest Chocolate cake I’m getting ready to devour as I’m sitting by the Nile a year ago. The Germans do a much better job at this cake in case you were wondering.
March is National Nutrition Month and there are hundreds of articles on what we should be eating to stay healthy. What you probably don’t know is that it’s also National Frozen Food Month but I thought chocolate was much more interesting.   The article below is one of the best I have seen on the benefits and downsides of eating chocolate. So if you are in the mood, go ahead have some dark chocolate but hold that glass of milk so you don’t spoil the health benefit of all those calories. Read on to find out why!
