Speaking of chocolate

Few days ago was a very cold and rainy day. On days like this I prefere to stay at home, watching nice movie, having a glass of wine, being wrapped up in blanket and of course eating chocolate.
Speaking of chocolate, I'm a huge fun.
I love chocolate any time of the day for any reason :-) 
Do you feel the same?
And also...

Did you know chocolate is good for you?
(Of course in a small amount)

1.) Chocolate makes us feel good
2.) It melts in your mouth 
3.) It really is good for you (in a small amount)
4.) Chocolate isn’t a food, it’s a medicine – an anti-depressant  :-)
5.) Contains antioxidants
6.) Helps the body generate serotonin

What is serotonin?
Serotonin is the happiness hormone that regulates the mood, reduces mood swings and even prevents depression .

But we still have to remember that it is important not to overindulge in chocolate, because it contains high amounts of saturated fats, sugar and can cause health damage or obesity. However, when eaten in moderate quantities, chocolate truly can be a miracle food. 


Chocolate and positive thinking, my favorite combination.

''There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with chocolate.''
~Linda Grayson~

''All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.''
~Lucy Van Pelt~

''Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands - and then eat just one of the pieces.''
~Judith Viorst~

I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process.... It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance?
~Unknown author~

Something little to put a smile on your face!

This guy found a bottle on the ocean, he opened it, out popped a genie and gave him three wishes. 

The guy wished for a million dollars and poof! There was a million dollars. 

Then he wished for a convertible and poof! There was a convertible. 

And then, he wished he could be irresistible to all women... poof! 
He turned into a box of chocolates.  

Now you tell me, why do you love chocolate and when it's your favorite time to eat it?
