If you’re wondering ‘what is the Sweet Swap‘ – it’s basically a foodie challenge, where you are matched up with three other bloggers from Australia and you make them a sweet treat (chocolate, lollies, etc) that will stand up to the Australian Post and you will receive three matches in return.
Who can resist velvety bittersweet, milk, or white chocolate topped with nuts, candy, or dried fruit?
Dark chocolate is loaded with nutrients that can positively affect your health. Made from the seed of the cocoa tree, it is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet. Studies show that dark chocolate (not the sugary crap) can improve health and lower the risk of heart disease.
Dried fruits offers some advantages over fresh fruits: a longer shelf life and portability. If you are watching your weight, dried fruits should be eaten in moderation as they contain significantly more calories per serving than fresh fruits. Some dried fruits contain sugars added in processing which increase its calorie content.
