Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies....

These cookies are good for you.

There have been studies that indicate that chocolate has quite a few health benefits. It's funny but these type of "studies" always amaze me.

Have any of these researchers ever eaten chocolate?? It's one of those "No Shit Sherlock" kinda studies. Of course chocolate is healthy!!

Chocolate is made from the cocoa bean, found in pods growing from the trunk and lower branches of the Cacao Tree, Latin name 'Theobroma Cacao' meaning "food of the gods".

Food of the Gods.....Really, why would "The Gods" eat anything unhealthy?? It would be such a bad example.

If you pick cacao beans from a tree than you should consider them as being in the "Fruit and Vegetable" category of our basic food groups.

I bet mom always told you to eat ALL your fruits and vegetables??

So next time you see something chocolate, eat it, eat it for mom.

I bet it was fun being in that chocolate study!!

If anyone hears about someone doing a study on Red Wine can you let me know...I want further our scientific knowledge base and volunteer to be a case study on the effects of Red Wine...

It will probably be a little scary at first being a human guinea pig, but I am sure after a couple glasses I'll be fine.

As you can imagine Tom, I follow all reports of studies about why chocolate is good for you very VERY closely. The study I favour the most had the participants eating 100G of dark chocolate instead of the 'two squares' that most studies recommend.

Red wine? A glass a day keeps heart attacks away is what I heard.

They say that chocolate especially dark one is useful for our health and brains. I have also mentioned that chocolate raises the mood.

Chocolate should be at the top of the food pyramid. Can't imagine a world without chocolate!
