I could probably think of a million reasons to eat chocolate but they are all mostly going to say this : “just because”! I am a confirmed chocolaholic. There, I said it. I have to eat it every day. Have to. It’s mandatory. If there is one day I actually don’t get any for whatever stupid reason, stay away from me.
Really. I have compiled a teeny list, however, of my reasons why you should eat more of it. Like everyday if it’s possible (it’s always possible)
All kidding aside and before I go on, I get that chocolate isn’t everyone’s thing. People look at me like I have 3 heads when I tell them I don’t eat shrimp or drink wine. We’re even. So why should we eat it anyway?
5 fun reasons to eat more chocolate
Try and heal a broken heart with broccoli. I dare ya. Face it, when you’re sad, you want junk food, plain and simple. You want chocolate” and cake and chips and pop, and maybe even a margarita? You don’t want broccoli. Who reaches for leafy greens when they are crying a river of heartbroken tears? Right?
It goes with everything.
Absolutely everything. You can’t dip everything into, let’s say, mustard. Gross. Chocolate goes with sweet stuff and salty stuff. Any girl who is pms’ing knows that is real!!! It goes with everything. Yum. I remember the first time I saw chocolate covered red licorice. Are you kidding me? Hello!!! And chocolate covered Rice Krispie squares?? Oh sweet geezus. I want to sleep in a bed of those.
It really is good for you.
Like emotionally. When you are sad, chocolate really does make you happy (unless you’re Satan). Ironically enough, studies have been done (why wasn’t I in the chocolate study dammit?) and they concluded that it really can cheer you up and make you happy. For those who aren’t into meditating to calm frazzled nerves, and for those who don’t drink alcohol, this should be your go to happy source. It works.
Better than roses.
You heard me. Not all girls want flowers and diamonds. Ok flowers are cool but you can’t really eat them, they die in like a day and they cost way more than goodness. Bring us some chocolate and you’ll have us eating out of the palm of your hand (pardon the pun) for a long long time. Just bring it to us and if we’re mad, just throw it at us. We don’t care how we get it. Really.
Apparently it’s healthy for you too.
Some studies said that the flavonoids are good to help with heart health, lower your cholesterol level, helps liver function (wtf?) and some other stuff that I’m not so sure I believe. You tell me it’s good for me, I’m eating more of it. Plain and simple.
Have you had your chocolate yet today?
I get that not everyone can eat it either. I’m sorry for you. I hope you can find a suitable alternative. All I know is that I need it daily. Another reason that I discovered awhile back was that many people who suffer headaches can alleviate the pain by eating some. Not everyone drinks coffee or tea and chocolate has a good healthy amount of caffeine to help make your headache go away.
Another win win if you ask me.
Oh and one more reason. Saving the best for last, if you are into pouring yummy things on your lover’s body, well, nothing beats the warm, sweet and gooey goodness. Did you just gasp? Lighten up. Try it. It’s amazing.
