Chocolate & Slurpees, life’s elixir?!

So, I’m already falling behind in my daily posting challenge. Yesterday was a busy beach day – morning at the lake for swimming lessons (I get to swim while the girlies learn πŸ™‚ ) and nearly six hours on Queensland Beach soaking up the rays and bobbing in the ocean. πŸ™‚

A friend presented me with a topic for my writing challenge: health benefits of chocolate and slurpees. Little did she know these both had tremendous benefits for me. πŸ™‚ The chocolate is pretty easy. Who doesn’t love it? (only freaks, if you must know) Since learning the anti carcinogenic benefits of dark chocolate I have become somewhat more of a chocolate snob. I don’t eat those Canadian candy bars anymore – unless that’s the only chocolate available πŸ˜‰ and dark choclate must be of a certain quality to truly enjoy it (and enjoy it I do!). I no longer eat my chocolate easter bunnies, so the Easter Bunny must stop delivering the traditional 1 lb allan milk chocolate and start presenting me with something I deserve! Lindor, dark, perhaps?

I am a bit of an addict, but since refining my tastes have been able to refrain from daily consummation, because I just KNOW the good stuff is worth waiting for. πŸ™‚

Now I know what you’re thinking, okay I get the healthy chocolate craze, but how are slurpees beneficial to health? For me it was during my first pregnancy, living in close vicinity to Seven-11 (real Slurpees, truly are the best) that I developed a craving almost daily as soon as summer hit. I NEEDED slurpees. It was the only hydration that really quenched my thirst and calmed my stomach! ) Never mind the crazy acrobatics my babe did every time I had one!) I stopped eating meat as it was completely revolting to me, substituted my protein source with seafood (which was truly a shame, not living on the β€œright” coast anymore πŸ˜‰ ) While I OD’d on salmon, my true falling was the Slurpee. I made excuses to drive into town just so I could stop in to my favourite stop.

Writing this leaves me wanting for a Seven-11 coke Slurpee right now. Who can deliver? πŸ˜€
