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.
♡ Best time to have chocolates: Before workout as you get a sugar rush and instant energy boost.
♡ It is a fact: That chocolates release a happy hormone ‘endorphine’ into the blood once you consume it.
♡ Have it: If you need to gain weight quickly.
♤ 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.
