Go ahead and share a bite with your special Valentine! Who doesn’t love hearing that chocolate is good for us? Chocolate has been linked to many health benefits. It can improve cholesterol, lower risk of cardiovascular disease and even enhance brain function.
My little one said it best when she was 6. She ate a piece of chocolate, looked at me and said “Chocolate makes me sooooo happy!”
And it’s not all in your head – chocolate really can make you feel better. It activates brain receptors that result in a calming, soothing sensation, which can help to boost mood and ease stress.
So, here is my Valentine’s Day wish to you….Enjoy, celebrate and indulge a little.
My favorite brands right now:
Dagoba (especially the lavender blueberry), Scharffenburger Bittersweet and Lake Champlain
