Chocolate has been getting a lot of positive press, lately. It has antioxidants, which have also been gettign a lot of positive press, lately. It is good for your heart and vascular system, and now, they say, good for brain function by improving blood flow to the brain. Check it out here.

It also has chemicals that help us focus and feel good. Of course everyone knows about the feel good chemicals, that’s why we eat it. And you can eat it without guilt if you avoid chocolate with lots of sugar and artificial ingredients. Look for a dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa. Or you can buy raw chocolate for maximum benefit. Of course, the bitter taste may take some getting used to. And don’t eat too much. 1.4 ounces has about the same caffeine as a cup of coffee. You don’t even need that much for the health benefits or the joy boost it gives.
