The History Of Chocolates And Dieting

Affiliates Journeys

Looking at the history of chocolates, countless people would look at chocolate as a delectably and irresistible sweet dessert invented during the modern times. But they are all wrong! It was actually during the ancient Mesoamerican civilizations where they started using bitter or dark chocolate drinks in some of their religious formal procedures and ceremonies as well some social events and settings. And since that time, there have been several significant chocolate inventions to make the chocolates we love even get better and better in the wonderful world of chocolate making!

Chocolates All the Way from History to Dieting

Now, looking from the history of chocolates to the various uses of chocolates nowadays, we could see how far chocolates have successfully journeyed on Earth. Tell me, would you ever believe if I tell you that no ìone chocolate dietî exists anywhere in this world? However, there are quite a lot of unusual diets where they recommend using chocolate as a helpful supplement to lose weight! If this sounds too good to be true, it is because you can’t just simply shovel back 3 candy bars everyday and call it a diet! No, the technique is to concoct your own special chocolate diet or diets by integrating small amounts of dark chocolate and cocoa with healthy, low-fat meals.

Remembering Matilda

I remember the day my friend came over while I was whipping up a batch of my grandmotherís homemade brownies. I could already hear her voice from the porch, but when she got into the kitchen and saw what I was doing, she left without saying goodbye. I was baffled! After many years of friendship, sheís never done anything like that to me, so I dialed her number and forced the answer from her. Apparently, she was going to be maid of honor on one of her cousinsí wedding and she figured she needed to lose a little extra pounds. When she found me cooking my grand mamaís chocolate brownie recipe, she knew she wouldnít be able to resist some if she had stayed.

Dieting for Health Reasons
Poor, Matilda. Men and women like her endure this excruciating sacrifice of not eating what they want just to look good. Given that it is great for health reasons, but does someone really have to suffer that much? I decided to rummage through chocolate recipes to find ones that will not tip the weighing scale over and make dieters run for their lives like this one great recipe hat made a mark in the history of chocolates, and that I will share with you.
