Why Eating a Brownie Can Actually Be Good for You

  • October 24, 2017

When was the last time you bit into an ooey, gooey brownie? Has it been too long? All too often, people “ban” themselves from eating sweets because they want to watch their waistline or they assume that all desserts are bad for you. In reality, it’s all about choosing the right sweets and desserts for your dietary needs and lifestyle. Believe it or not, there are a couple of ways in which eating a brownie could actually be good for you, both mentally and physically!

Treat Yourself to a Little Indulgence

There’s nothing wrong with indulging in a decadent dessert every now and then. In fact, doing so can alleviate stress and even be considered a form of self care. If you’re depriving yourself of the comforting feeling of indulging in a snack here and there, you’re actually more likely to be stressed. And if you’re doing it to stick with a diet, you’re actually more likely to fall off the wagon. So before you say “no” to that offering of homemade brownies, remember that in moderation, this snack can benefit your emotional and mental health!

Enjoy Health Benefits of Chocolate

Of course, most brownies contain chocolate of some kind—and chocolate affords a number of health benefits. Aside from being a source of antioxidants, chocolate has also been found to help lower blood pressure and even increase “good” cholesterol. Darker chocolate is also known to have anti-inflammatory qualities, so as long as you’re enjoying it in moderation, a delicious chocolate brownie can be great for your health.

While most people wouldn’t consider brownies a health food, there are many ways in which they can be good for you. Treat yourself to some healthy brownies from Bertha Mae’s Brownies Co. today and enjoy homemade flavor with every bite!
