Who says we have to suffer...to live a healthy happy vibrant life?
Red wine and dark chocolate... might seem decadent...but these guilty pleasures also might help us live longer...and healthier lives. Red wine and dark chocolate definitely improve an evening..but they also contain resveratrol..which lowers blood sugar. Red wine is a great source of catechins..which boost protective HDL cholesterol. Green tea? Protects your brain..helps you live longer..and soothes your spirit.
Food for Thought, the blog, is about living the good life...a life we create with our thoughts and our choices...and having fun the whole while!
I say lets make the thoughts good ones..and let the choices be healthy...exciting...and delicious! Bon Appetit!

You might not think of Denver or Colorado as wine country...but it is! My favorite? Balistreri Vineyards right here in Denver.
Visit their website here. The 2008 Little Feet Merlot is big and bold, maybe my favorite merlot ever... and the 2008 Petite Sirah is another personal favorite.
