Yes, you’ll miss out on a few tasty things when you are eating heart healthy (like my former love, alfredo sauce), but when dark chocolate and red wine are not only not forbidden but actually encouraged for heart health, well, it’s hard to feel sorry for yourself.
The Cleveland Clinic (ranked the nation’s top heart hospital by US News & World Report) offers their take on which of these good things is best. Their verdict is that dark chocolate wins, but with red wine a close runner up. I think that means we should have both, and I like them together (try Lindt 80% dark with a nice Malbec).
Everybody wins, especially me.
