The holidays are upon us once again, and one thing all winter holidays seem to have in common is food, glorious food. The temptation to overindulge is strong this time of year, but as we celebrate, it’s wise to heed the words of the ancient Greek poet, Hesiod, and remember, “Moderation is best in all things” (even during this festive time of year).
This week’s recipe for black and white bars is likely to challenge your resolve. These delicious cookies do, however, contain chocolate, which is full of antiinflammatory and antioxidant components, including resveratrol, which has shown anticancer properties in multiple studies. It was sent to CCSA as part of a series of emails from our resident chef, Dr. Linda Doody. She has been sharing her extensive collection of favorite recipes with friends, family, and the CCSA team as a means of maintaining connections during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
