Eat More Chocolate


Remember how good it felt the first time you nibbled a piece of really fine chocolate? I’m talking the real stuff -- a 72% single-origin organic Dominican seriously rich and creamy chocolate bar from the gourmet section.


The experience was practically hallucinogenic. And you thought, too bad this sinful indulgence wasn’t like actually beneficial to eat, too. Wouldn’t that be great?


Well, your dream just came true.


Here’s the deal: Dark chocolate is high in magnesium which helps reduce anxiety and calms muscles. Dark chocolate also contains phenylethylamine (PEA), the chemical created by the brain when you experience falling in love. PEA promotes the brain’s release of endorphins. So yeah, taking a nibble (or big bite) of that gourmet dark chocolate will in fact make you feel happier!


Know what else will make you feel more joyful? Spinach. It contains high amounts of folic acid, known for its mood-elevating benefits.


But c’mon, chocolate.
