Oof. I just wrote this WHOLE POST for you and lost it. I am not happy (I should probably eat some chocolate). I am also not going to retype everything, so now you’re getting the shorter version. Sorry.
I think you guys are probably aware that I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. I’ve written about it a fair amount.
And, I mean, duh. Who isn’t a Harry Potter fan?
Anyway, while I’m not silly enough to believe all of that magic really exists (or, at least, I’m not silly enough to admit that on the internet…), there is one little bit of magic from those book in which I totally believe: chocolate reallycan heal.
I’ve recently increased my chocolate intake and have told myself it’s for stress. However, I’ve also learned that it’s good for me and that maybe I’m doing it subconsciously for healthy reasons!
Let me have it. Sometimes you just need a win, right?
Here’s a sampling of some of the chocolate we have around the office.
Don’t worry. I never have that much at once.
I recently read this article in Eating Well Magazine (November/ December 2011 edition) and liked it so much, I thought I’d share it.
Last time I typed up this post, I re-typed the whole article for you. Not gonna happen again.
The bottom lines:
1. It makes you smile.
2. It helps you see better.
3. It’s a diet food.
That’s enough for me!
But, just in case it isn’t enough for you, you can check some other articles out:
- Why Chocolate is Good for You (Eating Well — again!)
- 9 Delicious Reasons to Eat Chocolate (Everyday Health)
I love it when these things work in my favor.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to eat some chocolate!
