Just in case, here are 3 great reasons to support your decision to indulge in all that beautiful chocolate.:)
1.    Research and studies have shown that chocolate can help lower the risk of heart disease. In a recent report, it was stated that participants who regularly eat chocolate have about a 37% lower chance of heart disease as opposed to those who do not eat it.  According to the study both milk and dark chocolates when consumed in a reasonable amount on a regular basis help lower the risks of heart disease and stroke.
2.    Premium dark chocolate is a great source of antioxidants which are said to help reduce wrinkles and ageing.  In addition, they help boost blood circulation which is influential in enhancing skin tone and texture.
3.    According to a Swiss study, eating chocolate helps improve  moods.  These studies have shown that high quality chocolate contains certain unique natural substances which elevate the mood and reduce stress levels.

Of course everything in moderation as there always seems to be a report about something to do with chocolate. The above is merely a suggestion for the positives of eating chocolate.

Hope though you did manage to relax and enjoy some wonderful chocolate over Easter - any favourites?
