THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands - and then eat just one of the pieces.
Did you know that milk chocolate differs from other chocolates because it's a mix of cocoa solid and either dry or condensed milk. While dark chocolate is traditionally used as a baking ingredient, this sweet treat is used to make chocolate candy bars, hot chocolate, and many delicious desserts.
And did you know that chocolate actually has mood enhancing benefits? That’s right, chocolate can make you happy! This is due to the fact that it contains a stimulant called theobromine and a compound called anandamide. I’ll never remember those names but I will remember that I’m always happier when I have some chocolate.
Although dark chocolate has long been known to have health benefits, a new study has found that milk chocolate may also provide valuable nutrients which lower the chance of heart problems. However, it is also clear that chocolate has the potential to increase weight, which is unequivocally bad for cardiovascular health, so we are advised not to over indulge. I’ve always believed in moderation in all things. We all can reduce our risk of stroke by exercising regularly, consuming a healthy, balanced diet and getting our blood pressure checked
I’m sure I have some milk chocolate here at my house today and I will be indulging!
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday !
