Valentine's Treat

It's easy to over do it with candy on Valentine's Day. Satisfy your sweet tooth with dark chocolate dipped strawberries. Strawberries are high in vitamin C, a good source of potassium, and high in fiber. Dark chocolate is rich in flavonoids, which are healthy antioxidants that also are found in fruits, vegetables, green tea, red wine, etc. Flavonoids give dark chocolate a slightly bittersweet taste. They also provide cardiovascular benefits, such as helping to reduce the risk for developing heart disease, stroke, cancer and even premature aging.
