After a stressful day, our tendency is to reward ourselves with a treat, most often, a gooey chocolate dessert. The problem is, once you’ve stopped thinking “I deserve this, I must have it,” the guilt sets in and start counting calories and sugar, thinking “Why did I do that?” Then, not only are you stressed out by your long day, but also by the reward that was supposed to make it better!
2. Let it melt in your mouth. Through amazing chocolate engineering, healthy fats in cocoa butter melt at about 90-93 degrees, a.k.a. the melt-in-your-mouth temperature. Not only do healthy fats help you feel satiated and contribute to better skin and hair, but letting the chocolate melt in your mouth can create a sort of mindful meditation and increase your feelings of well-being and satisfaction.
