Dark Chocolate has the anti-oxidant,  Resveratrol,

contained in Red Wine too.  

There is controversy about Resveratrol

but, I will use the placebo effect 

in red wine or chocolate, either or both.  Happiness is Healthy, innit ?

Found this in the archives,  love Bat's addition...ice cream !  I'd forgotten about broccoli...try it roasted with olive oil like cauliflower, it might change your mind.
