How about a nice cup of cocoa before bed? Well, if you’re a woman over 70, it’s just the thing to help prevent a heart attack. That’s right, there’s another good reason to have some chocolate every day, a new study found that (1) serving each day helped prevent heart attack. The good news is that you don’t need to eat a lot, a little goes a long way.
Have you noticed that women seem to respond to chocolate differently than men? We know that women have different types of chocolate receptors in their brains that men do. I wonder if those same receptors are somehow a signal or beacon that helps guide women toward a pleasurable food that’s ultimately good for us too.
Hmmm, it’s something to ponder as you nibble a brownie or sip hot chocolate? Do you ever find yourself craving other foods that your body might be a bit deficent in? Why is it that broccoli suddenly seems appealing or that a juicy orange has appeal? Just wondering.
