Celebrate National Cocoa Day

According my pal PartySugar, today is National Cocoa Day, and that is one day I feel like celebrating. Cocoa is good for your brain! Yep, it promotes blood flow to your noggin by dilating your arteries. This arterial dilation is good for your heart too and maybe this is why I love a nice, hot cup of cocoa on a cold day.

One of my favorite cocoas is Dark Chocolate Truffle Hot Cocoa by Godiva. Just 2 tbsp. of this powder contains 6 g. of fiber and 4 g. of protein! Just be sure make your little cup of indulgence with nonfat milk!

Happy, healthy National Cocoa Day to you. Celebrate by taking the cocoa quiz over on YumSugar.

Fit's Tip: One little reminder though: Everything in moderation, even cocoa!

Even though I'm a day late, I think I'll surprise my boyfriend with a candy cane hot chocolate when he comes over tonight. He works outside, and seeing how it's one of the coldest days here in MN, he might enjoy the little treat :)Thanks for the idea!
