Today’s guest blogger, Jeni, is a homeschooling mother of 5 with a passion for teaching Moms how to nurture and inspire their children. She discovered Perricone MD after years of working in the beauty industry as a makeup artist and saw first-hand how Dr. Perricone’s three-tiered approach transforms both skin and health.
You are 12 days into the 28 Day Diet, and you’re having company over to dinner. How do you serve dessert to dinner guests without derailing your nutritional goals?
Dark chocolate to the rescue! It probably won’t surprise you to learn that dark chocolate is my favorite superfood. Dr. Perricone praises dark chocolate for its concentration of powerful antioxidants and flavonoids – more than that of blueberries, red wine, or green tea – and its ability to protect skin from sun damage and prevent aging. But I have to admit; it’s that rich, smooth, complex flavor that has me hooked.
And what a lifesaver! Just one small serving of dark chocolate provides a satisfying curb to the sugar and caffeine cravings that many people deal with when attempting to follow a healthy diet.
So what if I told you that instead of reading off a list of health benefits as you pass a few squares of dark chocolate to your dinner guests, you can actually serve a rich, indulgent dessert, no apologies necessary? Tomorrow I have a dark chocolate recipe to share with you that’s easy to make and transforms dark chocolate plus a few simple low-inflammatory ingredients into an elegant and impressive dessert.
