It is definitely hot chocolate weather, but those packaged hot chocolate mixes contain corn syrup and hydrogenated oil. Make this time honored winter beverage a healthier treat.
My friend gave me a plaque that read, “Chocolate comes from cocoa, which comes out of a tree. That makes it a plant. Therefore, chocolate counts as a salad.”
While that may be a stretch, it begs the question … how does chocolate fit into a healthy eating plan?
