Dark Chocolate Zucchini (or summer squash) Cake
Category: Desserts
Description: Dark chocolate the bitter sweet treat! It's more than wishful thinking - chocolate can be good for you. Studies show that eating chocolate, primarily dark chocolate, may contribute to improved cardiovascular health. Packed with natural antioxidants, dark chocolate and cocoa sit in the same good-for-you category as green tea and blueberries. That's because chocolate comes from cacao beans (or cocoa beans), which grow on the cacao tree and are full of natural plant nutrients. Most of the studies to date highlight dark chocolate's health values because it has the highest percentage of cocoa solids, therefore more antioxidants.
*Health Fact! 40g of cocoa powder a day for 4 weeks has been proven to increase HDL (good) cholesterol by 5% while decreasing LDL (bad cholesterol by 14%!
As a part of the summer squash family, zucchini not only offers delightful taste and texture to many dishes, but also carries with it many health bene?ts.
