Back in Black: The Healthiest Food Hue

For food that packs a healthful punch, go to the dark side.
DARK CHOCOLATE

Milk chocolate has nothing on dark. It’s an antioxidant beast and can contribute to improved cardiovascular health.

Dark chocolate also contains flavonoids, a class of antioxidants that some researchers link to brain health. Opt for three ounces of 65 percent cacao or higher.
