“Chocolate is meant to be eaten with a smile on your face, and love in your heart.” Anthony T. Hincks
Hands down, nothing feels better than the taste of the chocolate!
And even if you are on get-my-butt-in-shape-diet, you still can eat 37 gram of dark chocolate every day.
1.It’s good for your heart
Dark chocolate helps restore flexibility of arteries, plus also preventing white blood cells from sticking to the walls of blood vessels – both common causes of artery clogging.
The latest research in Finland have found that chocolate consumption lowers the risk of suffering a stroke – by a staggering 17 % average in the group of men they tested.
Dark chocolate is packed with potassium, zinc and selenium, and 100g bar of dark (70 % or more) chocolate provides 67 % of iron.
3.It’s good for your skin
Dark chocolate can protect your skin from ANY damage.
Why Ray Not look so young?
Because she is eating dark 70%-or-more-chocolate every day no matter what!!
4. Prevent diabetes
Yes, that’s true as well!
It sounds mad, I know, but the thing is …cocoa can improve insulin sensitivity. So dark chocolate – in moderation – might delay or prevent diabetes.
And it is also good for the brain and for the mood! You can’t feel down and unhappy if there’s 70% chocolate-bar in your pocket, ready to be eaten…
My advice: Become a chocolate-vampire and stay always Happy!

Interesting fact: 30 gram of the dark chocolate = a cup of espresso
Coffee. Ahh, what we’d do without the discovery in Khadi (Egypt), when one of the sheeps has disappeared… The owner found the animal near the bush with a dark red berries. He tried it and started to dance. Then a couple of the monks have burned those berries on the fire – and the smell of the real coffee was born.
Top 10 coffee consuming nations:
Check the List
You can expect to get around 85 mg of caffeine from an average cup of coffee. However, this amount varies between different coffee drinks, and can range from almost 0 to 500 mg.
Side effects of too much caffeine (too much = more than 400 mg each day):
1. Anxiety and Insomnia
Extremely high daily intakes of 1,000 mg or more per day have been reported to cause nervousness, jitteriness and similar symptoms in most people.
2. Digestive problems
The large doses of caffeine may lead to loose stools or even diarrhea. Fk that! We still love you, coffee!! Give us loose stool any day of the year! We are ready!
3. High Blood Pressure
More serious. Hm.
Elevated blood pressure is a risk factor for heart attack and stroke because it may damage our arteries, restricting the flow of blood to your heart and brain. Fortunately, caffeine’s effect on blood pressure seems to be temporary. Also, it seems to have the strongest impact on people who aren’t used to consuming it. So drink, drink, drink it!
4. Frequent Urination
You may have noticed that you need to urinate frequently when you drink more coffee than usual. The perfect way to escape a blind date, don’t you think?
BUT WE DO NOT CARE, because coffee is loaded with Powerful Antioxidants!
Our bodies are under constant attack by “free radicals.” These radicals can damage important cell structures like proteins and DNA. We love our DNA. Because the DNA is who we are…
Most people consume about 1–2 grams of antioxidants per day.
The majority comes from beverages like coffee or tea.
So…are you still in doubt?
What’s our perfect breakfast tomorrow?
Right, coffee and chocolate!
