Giveaway (50 Subscribers) and a Rant

I decided to do an impromptu giveaway on my HealthyDury channel.

(I have one ready for when I reach 50 subscribers on my NaturallyDury channel *hint*).

My next milestone is 100 subscribers and there will be another giveaway, for sure :)

MINI-RANT

I’m so tired of how the media misleads members of the public, how can a headline read “Reduce the risks of a stroke by chomping on a choc bar”?!?!?

They went on to recommend a popular brand of chocolate that is less than 40% cocoa (which is what contains ‘flavanoids’ which help reduce this risk).

Its ingredients (in order of highest % first) include: Sugar, Glucose Syrup, Skimmed Milk Powder, Milk Fat, Vegetable Fat, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass…. (and more random stuff). And this is what they’re recommending people eat to stave off strokes??? Aarggghhh!!!!

Why couldn’t the recommend dark chocolate? Even 65-70% (cocoa) chocolate?

And right at the end of the article, the final paragraph, they finally remembered to state that “chocolate is high in sugar, saturated fat and calories and should be consumed in moderation”. 

Most people won’t read that last paragraph, they’d be so happy that they can eat a bar of chocolate a day to “prevent a stroke”.

Nonsense!

Chocolate brands I like (and would happily recommend) include – Green & Blacks (most supermarkets sell them) and Montezuma (Whole Foods). I’ll add more later.
