Eat What the Brain Wants! Chocolate!

So, I may be a little obsessed with eating chocolate. It is like my brain food. I mean I don't go crazy and eat it like a mad woman wearing it on my face or snarfing down five chocolate bars a day or anything.  But a small piece a day is my reward! My brain wants it and I don't deny myself the delicacy.

Well BOOO YA it is actually good for your health. Just the excuse I need hahahaha! Chocolate that contains 60% cocoa can improve your heart health, lower blood pressure, reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) but wait because that is not all. IT INCREASES BLOOD FLOW TO THE BRAIN. WOOHOO! I feel smarter already, don't you? It also boosts serotonin levels that helps with mood and get this GREATER CONCENTRATION. Beat that little Debby.

Why you ask. Well since chocolate is made from plants it contains benefits of dark veggies. Hell ya, but gosh don't tell the kiddies since Halloween is coming soon. It's got antioxidants and free radicals going on. Rumor has it that there is only 1/3 bad fat in it!

So, you want a little something something while writing you have my permission to EAT SOME CHOCOLATE!

Here you go, pass some around. Hey, I saw that share now. So what is your brain food?
