Chocolate for health ;)

Did you know that ants have two stomachs?? One for personal use and one for sharing… The latter seems very gross. I however share this anatomical ability šŸ˜‰ I too have two stomachs, one for general food intake and one purely for anything deliciously pudding related or of course chocolate.

This is very beneficial as I always have space for dessert! It astounds me that people would consciously fill up on supper and then say no thank you to dessert!! It is not normal. If you find yourself to be one of these people…resist the urge to go for your second helping, and save space for dessert.

Chocolate can actually decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease. Yes this is factually true, studies have been done and it has been proven that eating chocolate a few times a week can reduce your risk with up to 60%. Google it if you don’t believe me. My other favorite, Cotton candy helps you grow new blood vessels. This too was found true in a study done on the matter. So with my risk for heart disease at a minimum and my blood vessels re-generating as we speak, I feel blissfully delighted with my “second stomach” and slight chocolate addiction.

There is no better sensation than the satisfaction after a mouthful of chocolate. Desserts and chocolate trigger endorphins release as well, so even more reason to indulge and experience little moments of euphoria.

My husband’s brother-in-law bought us some Minstrels a while ago and I have been having serious cravings for more (thanks Brad)! It’s like having little bursts of crunchy dark but still sweet deliciously glorious chocolate bites. In a way, I do wish that I had never tasted them, they are addictively delicious and not available at most of our shops…in fact I know only of the one outlet where we got them. It is time like these when I wish I had a relative abroad that could send me a box full!

But seeing as it reduces my risk of heart disease, I feel obligated to go and get some more…seriously yummy stuff!! And besides…my second stomach needs to be fed!!
