Chocolate is good for the soul

In the last few days it started to be much colder. You can feel the winter in the air. 
On days like this I prefere to stay at home, watching a nice movie, being wrapped up in blanket. My favorite thing is to light up my scented candle and relax while I'm drinking my big cup of hot cocoa. 
There's something about drinking hot chocolate while its cold outside, makes you all warm and feeling good.

Hot chocolate benefits:
1.) Chocolate is good for the soul.
2.) More antioxidants are released when it's heated up.
3.) Antioxidants help prevent cancer, heart disease and aging.
4.) Drinking hot chocolate can help you think better, because the flavonoids increase the blood flow and oxygen to the brain.
5.) It is a great relaxant that helps you to fall asleep.
6.) Hot chocolate can help older people keep their brains healthy, research has shown.
7.) Hot cocoa (minus the whipped cream) is a good way to fight cancer. 

Being healthy has never been this easy or this delicious. 

Because of high levels of calories, saturated fat, sugar content ... dental problems and obesity are health risks. However, when eaten in moderate quantities, chocolate truly can be a miracle food. 


I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process.... It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance?
