Brace yourself for you're about to change your diet and soon replace chocolate for all the fruits in the world. Hang on, that might be too bold a statement. Wouldn't that be just a dream come true though? Here are some interesting 'findings'. Take it with a pinch of salt. We at team Yamee are not scientists (only in our dreams), just massive lovers of chocolate :-)
Chocolate can be as good & healthy as fruits. Hmmm, not so sure...
Is the sweet tooth in you jumping for joy yet? Some wise humans say dark chocolate contains a higher amount of disease-fighting antioxidants as compared to some fruits. Interesting. But, remember, too much of a good thing isn't what it's cracked up to be. Be moderate as you annihilate that dark chocolate :-)
Broccoli contains twice the amount of vitamin C compared to an Orange
Yes, you read that right. The name "Broccoli" originates from the Italian plural of "Broccolo", which means 'the flowering crest of a cabbage'. It is rich in vitamin K, is a good source of folate (folic acid), and also provides potassium and fiber. Go Broccoli. Luckily, our kids at team Yamee love it, oddly enough.
Parsley is a natural breath freshener
Something about its rich aroma is truly convincing us about this too. This rich versatile herb comes packing a whole lot of vitamin A, C & K. It is rich in antioxidants too and provides for strong and healthy bones and protects the body against chronic diseases. So next time you sense a little embarrassing breath while on a dinner date...order something with extra extra parsley and feel fresh **wink wink**
Apples can help you wake up
Well, they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Who are these wise humans who keep saying stuff? Anyway, did you know that apples are more effective than coffee at getting you active in the morning? They're rich in pectin - a dietary fiber found in their peels, which is good for when you're having digestive issues due to improper sleep patterns or late eating habits. Talk about a fruit that gives you balance :)
Chewing coffee beans = No bad breath
Here goes yet another life hack. Coffee beans are so good they beat the effect of a super minty gum. This is because coffee has elements that inhibit the survival of bacteria that causes bad breath in your mouth.
