As long as you eat the dark stuff and skip the milk on the side, chocolate may actually be good for you. People who ate 3 ounces of dark chocolate a day had more antioxidants in their blood than those who ate milk chocolate or ate dark chocolate with milk, a study at the National Institute for Food and Nutrition Research in Rome found. What's more, previous studies at the University of California, Davis, found that cocoa powder extracts lower harmful LDL cholesterol. Just remember that 3 ounces of dark chocolate contain more than 400 calories and 27 grams of fat, 22 grams of it saturated. The lowfat-brownie recipe at right uses dark cocoa powder, allowing you to get chocolate's health benefits without the guilt. Just save some for your valentine.
