Tuesday, heart health…

When I read the prompt for this week’s Two Shoes Tuesday,
box and/or dark,
this immediately came to mind.
And I mean immediately…without a moment’s hesitation!

chocolateA pretty box of beautiful chocolates.
I spy some dark chocolates in the box.
 My favorite!
But all chocolate is good.

Chocolate not only tastes good the dark variety is good for your heart,
in moderation of course.
Besides the heart health benefit it is also a mood elevator.
When your mood is in the basement chocolate will move you right to the penthouse.

Really, whatever is hurting your heart chocolate will help ease the pain.


Today, I think chocolate is more than just a special treat it is a necessity of life.

  1. My wife has discovered “Dark Chocolate Pomegranate” and Dark Chocolate Acai Blueberry…now I run to the pantry 2 or 3 times a night for that “lift from the basement”
    great post

    1. I have had both of these confections and they are so good! Usually I don’t wait until I am in the basement to have chocolate…preventive medicine.

  2. Yes! Perfect choice. We capped our evening off with ice cream ~> toasted waffle, spread with Nutella (chocolate hazelnut), topped with vanilla Haagen Daz, strawberries, and bananas!

    Fruit + chocolate = Perfect Health!

  3. When I was young, I liked chocolate. A LOT. Now, I don’t crave chocolates or sweets. Seems backwards.
    A lovely post, Patrician. I understand the comfort of chocolate, though.

    1. Hmmm, can’t imagine life without chocolate. I have always loved chocolate. I do have to be careful nowadays because it can give me heartburn. Bummer.

    1. I am a chocoholic and have no restraint when it comes to chocolate. I either have none or too much. No such thing as moderation in this house.

  4. I think you deserve an award for best use of prompts!! 🙂 Dark chocolates in a box, now why didn’t I think of that?! Probably because I have a bag of dark chocolates in the fridge, and as soon as I get home from work on really exhausting days I reward myself with one. They instantly make me feel better! Not sure if that’s psychological or physical but a little self-indulgence is a good thing, I think! Thank you for the perfect end of day TST post to make me smile, I loved it! Watch for a new creative writing blog hop announcement on Thursday too! 🙂

    1. I really did think of dark chocolate in a box as soon as I read the prompt. I had no other thoughts. Very glad you liked it. But then what’s not to like about chocolate? You have me curious about the creative writing hop. I will for sure see you Thursday.

  5. I just love this and what’s better than chocolate? I just don’t know. Okay a big box of dark chocolate for me.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂
