The Origin Of Gelato

The best way to enjoy a hot summer day is to sit back and relax with something cold and refreshing. Gelato is an age-old delicacy that dates back thousands of years. The earliest beginnings of frozen desserts are recorded in 3000 B.C. when Asian cultures discovered they could consume crushed ice and flavorings. Five hundred years later, it became a custom for Egyptian pharaohs to offer their guests a cup of ice sweetened with fruit juices. Italians joined in as the Romans began the ritual of eating the ice of the volcanoes Etna and Vesuvius, and covering it with honey. Now, gelato has become very popular amongst Americans because of its intense flavor and freshness. Nina’s Fresh Bakery serves fresh gelato in many delicious flavors. Call (561) 768-9928 at our Center Street location or stop by today.

Cake For Breakfast?

Not only can you eat cake for breakfast, doing so may actually help you keep weight off, a new study suggests. In the study, obese participants who ate a breakfast high in protein and carbohydrates that included a dessert were better able to stick to their diet and keep the pounds off longer than participants who ate a low-carb, low-calorie breakfast that did not include sweets. Carbs and protein eaten at breakfast may keep us full throughout the day, plus allowing ourselves some sweets helps to stem cravings for these foods, said study researcher Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz, of Tel Aviv University in Israel.

Benefits Of Chocolate

1. Chocolate Improves Cognitive Performance

Eating chocolate on a regular basis can lead to better cognitive function — including brain activities that lead to gaining knowledge such as reasoning, memory, attention and language. A report in the Appetite journal noted that chocolate consumption was associated with cognitive performance regardless of other dietary habits.

2. It’s Good for the Heart

Dark chocolate helps restore the flexibility of arteries as well as preventing white blood cells from sticking to the walls of blood vessels. In a study published in the Faseb journal, scientists recognized that eating dark chocolate is good for the heart and it can play a good part in battling atherosclerosis, a disease associated with plaque buildups inside the arteries.

3. Reduces Chances of Stroke

Eating a small amount of chocolate each day could prevent diabetes and insulin resistance. Daily chocolate consumption was also linked to a lower risk of stroke, reported in the British Journal of Nutrition last year.

4. Reduces Memory Decline

Drinking two cups of hot chocolate a day could help stop memory decline and keep the brain healthy. A Harvard Medical School study discovered that hot chocolate helped improve blood flow to essential parts of the brain. Different areas of the brain require more energy to complete their tasks, and they also need greater blood flow. This relationship (neurovascular coupling) may also play an important role in fighting diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

5. Mineral Abundance

Dark chocolate is loaded with a healthy collection of beneficial minerals such as potassium, zinc and selenium. A 100-gram bar of dark chocolate (70 percent or more) provides 67 percent of the RDA of iron, an important component of hemoglobin, which helps red blood cells carry oxygen from lungs throughout the body.

6. See You Later, Bad Cholesterol

It’s been observed that eating cocoa can reduce levels of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and raise levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL), thus lowering the possibility of suffering from cardiovascular disease again. In a study by Tokyo’s Ochanomizu University, 25 healthy Japanese men with normal or mildly high cholesterol levels were assigned to drink cocoa with sugar for 12 weeks. As a result, they experienced a 24 percent rise in their good cholesterol levels. The cocoa they drank wasn’t your typical store-bought kind. The researchers bought, roasted, cracked and ground the cacao beans in their lab!

7. Healthy Skin, Too!

It used to be a common misconception that chocolate was the cause of skin acne breakouts. But that myth has been debunked. Today’s science has shown that dark chocolate is a great source of flavonols — a group of plant metabolites that have excellent antioxidant effects. These flavonols can fight against skin damage. Flavonoids also fight free radicals (molecules that have lost an electron and attack DNA, enzymes and proteins or cell membranes) in the bloodstream. Of course, this doesn’t mean you can skip wearing sunscreen if you eat dark chocolate.

8. Less Stress for Moms

According to a recent Finnish study, eating chocolate reduced stress in expectant mothers. Even more fascinating, the babies of these chocolate-eating moms smiled more than those of non-chocolate-eating parents!

9. Science Says Chocolate Helps You Feel Better

Chocolate contains phenylethylamine (PEA), which is the same chemical that your brain creates when you feel like you’re falling in love. PEA encourages your brain to release feel-good endorphins.

By the way, make sure to stick to organic brands and avoid chocolate from companies like Hershey’s and Nestle, as their chocolate is not as pure as other sources. Also, don’t forget that chocolate does have a high-calorie count and can contain large amounts of sugar. Moderation is key, even when it comes to chocolate.
