Wait... chocolate is bad? I would think good quality dark chocolate is actually a solid option when you're stressed. You've got positive triggers for serotonin (therefore balancing out any cortisol imbalances), ton of anti-oxidants, and a good portion of fat! You've been told that chocoate is bad but really I think it's another conventional wizdom thinking. There must be reasons why your body would go to chocolate as a comfort when you are anxious no? I think it has many properties that people don't think about.
