7 Bitter-Sweet Things about Chocolates…

If there is one thing that makes me happy instantly, it is chocolate. I can vouch that not only children but we adults too love this soul food!

There is always a debate that these sweet treats lead to weight gain and pimples. On International Chocolate Day, I had a tètè-a-tètè with Andaleeb Sahar Sayed, Executive Pastry Chef of The Lalit Mumbai, on the bitter sweet things about Chocolates.

BITTER
Look for: A higher coco percentage in dark chocolates.

♤ Weigh it out: Limit your chocolate indulgence to 10 to 15 grams everyday.

♤ Must avoid: Chocolate as desserts, specially post dinner.

 ♧ WoW TIP: Always read the label for the date of expiry and how to preserve the chocolate. Also do make sure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients.
