Looking for a new health food? Try emily’s milk chocolate covered almonds and emily’s dark chocolate covered blueberries (both available locally at Target and Wal-Mart). emily’s milk chocolate covered almonds are easily the best chocolate covered almond that I’ve ever had. The almonds are big and the chocolate is creamy.
“But is it health food?” you ask. Sure:
- Almonds may help reduce bad cholesterol. [ Mayo Clinic ]
- Dark chocolate is heart healthy (dark chocolate has the advantage over milk chocolate). [ WebMD ]
- Blueberries are rich in anti-oxidants and may have other health benefits. [ WebMD ]
I’ve been adding more heart-healthy choices to my diet, such as natural almonds and Cheerios with freshly ground flax seed instead of my beloved unfrosted strawberry Pop-Tarts. So, imagine my joy when I learned that I could indulge (in moderation, of course) and still promote heart health! [ If you think otherwise, please don’t leave a comment and spoil it for me. ]
