My sister knows how to give the perfect Christmas gift! My favorite, Good quality dark chocolate! This assortment is “Trader Joe’s Chocolate Passport.”
It’s a guilt free mood lifter for me that I can feel good about having several times each week. Studies say that dark chocolate is good for your heart and your brain. Chemicals in the chocolate encourage your brain to release endorphins and can actually make you feel happier. It has a low glycemic index and won’t cause huge sugar spikes as long as you stick with the 70% cocoa or higher variety. Dark chocolate is loaded with antioxidants and is high in vitamins and minerals like magnesium, potassium and iron.
Lily Eastbrook Rhodes in “Heart Seasons: A Journey of Miracles” always had an excellent selection of dark chocolate available at “Calla Lilies” and this SUPERFOOD was a weekly purchase for her regular customers.
