The good news ...
Cranberry juice is old hat. Three delicious new flavours which won't ruin your waistline:
Pomegranate - refreshing, dry and full of antioxidants
Blueberry - delicious and full of vitamins and minerals, especially anthocyanins
Goji berry - the 'miracle' Himalayan fruit, rich in minerals and vitamins B1, B2, B6.

The better news ...
A shot of vodka in your juice adds only 52 calories per serving.

The best news ...
Chocolate is good for you! Recent research indicates that *chocolate can lower blood pressure, neutralise free radicals and boost the body's ability to metabolise sugar. It contains a caffeine-like stimulant which can aid concentration and is a good source of chromium, which helps control blood sugar. It's educational: chocolate-inspired reading includes Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel and Chocolat by Joanne Harris. And finally, it's ever-popular. Fifty-seven per cent of UK children spend their pocket money on chocolate and confectionery.
*Sorry, only in dark chocolate.
