Today I'm trying to be positive, in light of the rain and snow that is falling outside my window. So here's something I'm totally loving on right now:
These little chocolate covered acai and blueberry goodies. I've heard that acai is good for you, but I wasn't really sure why. So off to Wikipedia I went, my trusted source for all things that could possibly be true. (Hey, it is the internet). There are a lot of purported health benefits to the acai berry, "rich" in antioxidents, including weight loss, and reversal of diabetes and other chronic illnesses.
Apparently the FDA has not done any studies on the health benefits of the acai berry, so any claim made is unproven at the moment. The acai berry has less antioxidents than the blueberry, but more than an orange. So, there's that.
In any event, these little treats are good. At a whopping 170 calories for 16 pieces though, I have to limit myself slightly. But they are the perfect mix-in with a handful of walnuts for a tasty little afternoon snack. Yum!
