Weeks 7 & 8 Superfoods Are… Garlic & Dark Chocolate!

Mat chose the perfect foods for the last two weeks of the challenge! I do have these foods often and they are so healthy for you.

It has so many health benefits, from lowering blood pressure to raising the HDL (good cholesterol) and lowering the LDL (bad cholesterol). It helps reduce cancer risk, aids in weight loss and can reduce inflammation and pain in the body.

It don't take much garlic. You can chop up a clove and put it in your salad.

Dark chocolate comes from a tropical tree called cacao. Before sugar, milk and other ingredients are added, this raw form of dark chocolate has many health benefits. It can boost serotonin in the brain, so it reduces the risk of depression. It's also anti aging and good for your heart.

Personally, I have raw cacao nibs. It's bitter at first, but now I love it! Who needs all that extra sugar!

I already ate everyone of these foods way before the challenge started, so I guess it wasn't much of a challenge for me! But I do think they were good choices and a good start for those looking to eat healthier.
