Dessert doesn’t have to be a bad word! Dipping a piece of fruit (try a strawberry, banana, apple, or pineapple) in chocolate is a good way to get a sugary fix without ruining the day’s diet. For more health benefits use rich dark chocolate, which boasts flavanoid antioxidants. Chocolate isn’t really a health food (sorry, folks), but a little bit goes a long way towards keeping a sweet tooth satisfied.

Do It Today: After dinner, drizzle a superfood fruit, like strawberries, with antioxidant-rich dark chocolate for a sweet treat with some extra health benefits.
