- Question from CarlosR: I've always bought really good chocolate for my wife for Christmas and birthdays because she loves chocolate. Now that she's been through cancer, I wouldn't want to give her something that's bad for her. Anything to watch for with chocolate, apart from calories?
- Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. That's a thoughtful gift. Look for 70% dark chocolate because it is highest in antioxidants. Enjoy it in moderation, as opposed to eating the whole box on Christmas Day—not that we all haven't done that!
