Blog Prompt: Today is Chocolate Day. What is your favorite chocolate and when was the last time you had it?
I love, love, love, chocolate and I have it almost every day.Â So, I thought I would look at the pros and cons of eating chocolate.
Should I or shouldn’t I eat chocolate?Â Lets look at both sides of chocolate.
ConsÂ – Fattening, too much sugar, not much on nutritional value as a candy bar and melts in your hand, toxic to animals, very addictive.
Pros – Cocoa or dark chocolate benefits the circulatory system, Other beneficial effects suggested include anticancer, brain stimulator, cough preventive and antidiarrhoeal effects, may stimulate the hypothalamus, inducing pleasurable sensations as well as affecting the levels of serotonin, an aphrodisiac, tastes great!
So, the conclusion I have come up with is how can anyone not find anything good about chocolate.Â And by the way, I wouldn’t give my good dark chocolate to my dog anyway!!Â I would choose dark chocolate over mild chocolate any day and it seems there are more benefits from the darker version.Â And the idea that it might help my circulatory system, stimulate my brain a bit and causes me not to have diarrhea and the best part, could help me enjoy a nice night with my hubby!!
I conclude there is not darn thing wrong with CHOCOLATE and I must have it!!!
Have a wonderfully sweet day,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
