“Dark chocolate contains antioxidants, flavonols and iron – all wonderful nutrients for the whole body,” says Dr. Michael Roizen, co-founder of YouBeauty.com as well as co-author of the You series of health books. “You’ll also get protein, amino acids, vitamins and minerals from the tofu. This is a great recipe for guests – they won’t know there is a tofu in it if you don’t tell them!”
