I love this super-rich hot chocolate from Soma — my favourite chocolate shop located in Toronto’s Distillery District. Dark chocolate has high levels of antioxidants, which have been linked to boosting good cholesterol and lowering blood pressure. Of course, more studies need to be done. Personally I like to indulge in good quality chocolate because of it’s mood-elevating properties — they make me happy! So during this season of hanging out with friends and family, let’s enjoy great-tasting food and park that guilt. Happy holidays and wishing you the best for 2011!
