Looking for A Good Excuse to Eat Chocolate?

Ha! I know I am. We had our family get together last night and I let myself have a tiny amount of dark chocolate. Brother had smoked a pork tenderloin, and the rest of us brought pot-luck dishes. I brought dark chocolate pinwheels, and neice brought dark chocolate cupcakes.It was a chocolate lover's haven!

Well,there is good news. It seems that our scientific community has proclaimed once and for all that chocolate is good for you! Whoo-hoo! I have gradually changed to dark chocolate, because it has been found to be better than other chocolates.

I love to buy the dark chocolate chips(that you put in cookies) ,and put them in the refrigerator. I munch on a few (9-10) each night. They are cold, and eat them one by one letting them melt in my mouth.Ummmm....are you drooling yet? It's a healthy treat as long as you are cautious,which admittedly it's very hard to be!

Dark Chocolate has amazing amounts of antioxidants which aid the body by getting rid of  free radicals. More good news is that dark chocolate has more antioxidants that green tea or  red wine, and some other well known foods that have been widely published as rich in antioxidants.

 Some say chocolate makes them happy. I do feel better, though guilty, when I eat chocolate. Actually studies collaborate this claim. Chocolate causes your body to produce endomorphins. in larger amounts.  Endomorphins are the “feel good” chemicals .Chocolate also raises your serotonin levels, which can counteract depression and anxiety.

Chocolate contains magnesium which  is said to be heart healthy. It can reduce inflammatory diseases and helps in preventing type two diabetes.
