Wouldn’t it be amazing if the things we love to eat were also those that were good for us. So, instead of instinctively saying, “No I can’t/I mustn’t/I won’t because I’m on a diet or it’s bad for me, imagine the frisson of delight at being able to say yes to something wickedly delicious and knowing that it’s also providing you with healthy benefits.
Imagine Gail’s joy when she came across foodie nirvana in a friend’s fridge last month. Nestling next to the eggs was a weeks supply of mini bars of “ohso” chocolate. “Have one”, the friend said – “they’re delicious and good for you”. It turns out these 13.5g bars of Belgian chocolate contain around a billion Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium bacteria which is similar to well-known dairy-based probiotic drinks and each bar has only 72 kcals. We all know by now that probiotics help promote healthy gastrointestinal functions and maintain a healthy intestinal balance.
We are not going into scientific depth about why probiotics in chocolate are better for you than dairy based products, you can look that up on their website, Ohso Loves Your Tummy. All I know is that we would rather indulge our yearning for chocolate in the middle of the afternoon knowing that we can feel virtuous, our pleasure is guilt-free and our tummy will benefit!
