New Year's Update & Valentines

I'm doing good on my "no soda" resolution that I was assigned to by Jordann. :-) I only drank about a half of a can the other day of a Diet Dr. Pepper that I had leftover. I'm also doing very well on another resolution that I made a couple of years ago and re-resolved this year - Eat Chocolate Every Day! One of the new things I'm doing at work is a vitamin scan and some nutritional counseling. So I've been reading a lot about antioxidants and keep finding more info about dark chocolate. It's high in antioxidants and studies have shown that it reduces blood pressure and may help prevent heart disease and cancer. Just don't eat it with milk... that interferes with the absorption of the antioxidants. But it is high in calories so don't replace your veggies with dark chocolate! My favorite dark chocolate bar is the Trader Joe's 72% cacao bar. Mmmmmmm..... I did buy one of the 86% cacao bars, too. Not as sweet, but good.
I've also listed a few Valentine items in my Etsy shop.
