Valentine's Day is synonymous with flowers and chocolates. Flowers I can have but chocolates, not. Well, not all the time. I can still eat dark chocolates, you know. Unlike milk chocolates and white chocolates, dark chocolates are rich in flavonoids, an anti-oxidant that's derived from plants. A research done in 2005 showed that dark chocolates helped participants lower their blood pressure levels. It has also helped increase the body's metabolism of sugar, something that diabetics like me can't do.
Like jewelry, cosmetics, and, in my case, cellulaires (French for cellular phones, haha!), chocolates are a girl's best friend. I'm not asking too much. Just a few bites every once in a while. Of course, it still has loads of calories so I still can't have too much dark chocolate.
