the best food creation on this earth.
well at least one of them! 
and not that i need any more reasons to increase my chocolate intake (not going to lie it is pretty high) are some of the amazing benefits from it.
i mean i know in moderation, but still!

1. it's good for your heart. "those who ate one or two servings of dark chocolate each week cut their risk for heart failure by as much as a third."

2. dark chocolate fulfills cravings. "rresearchers from the university of copenhagen found that dark chocolate is far more filling, offering more of a feeling of satiety than its lighter-colored sibling. that is, dark chocolate lessens cravings for sweet, salty, and fatty foods."

so basically it helps you loose weight! who knew!

3. helps in diabetes prevention
"small italian study, participants who ate a candy bar's worth of dark chocolate once a day for 15 days saw their potential for insulin resistance drop by nearly half."

4. reduces stress.
obviously this is a fact. i know for me whenever i am super stressed out (so basically all last month) i ate lots and lots of chocolate. it sure helped! :)

5. makes you smarter.
"drinking cocoa rich in flavanols boosts blood flow to key parts of the brain for 2 to 3 hours, which could improve performance and alertness in the short term."

6. helps reduce coughing 

some of my favorite chocolates:

all the chocolate at trader joes. it is amazing but specifically the dark chocolate with black sea salt and caramel. or the extra dark chocolate wedges.

see's thank you katie young for introducing me to this amazing chocolate shop. they have amazing old fashioned candies. my favorite is the bridge mix. 

lindt extra dark truffles or the dark excellence bars. 

what kinda of chocolate do you like? i would love to exchange favorites!
and remember next time you are stressed out. grab a chocolate bar, it will do you some good :)


  1. when i'm stressed i *always* grab a chocolate bar, it makes my heart happy :) my desk drawer is over-flowing with Snicker wrappers. and i appreciated this list- i'll definitely run it through my head when i feel guilty for inhaling a whole bar in one sitting haha!
