Blood oranges are “bloody” from a pigment called anthocyanin, which is widely found in the plant kingdom and can appear red as in cherries and red cabbage to blue as in blueberries and cornflowers or even purple as in pansies and eggplants (aubergines). Anthocyanin is reported to have many health benefits as it is a powerful antioxidant that can slow or prevent the growth of cancer cells–and even kill them. Moreover blood oranges contain high amounts of Vitamin C (up to 130% of recommended daily amount), potassium, Vitamin A, iron, calcium, and even fiber. Oranges and their juice can also help prevent the build-up of bad cholesterol as well as lower the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and cataracts…

I really have to find the energy to make my way to the grocery store, as I’m in serious need of some f*cking chocolate.

  1. I like milk and white chocolate the most, especially with almonds or peanuts. My favorite is Snickers, also the Hershey white cookies and creme bar and Ferrero Rocher! I have a MAJOR sweet tooth! 😀 I’ll probably be toothless at 40 😛 Just kidding!

    • I don’t think sugar causes cavities — that’s just an old wive’s tale. It’s the bacteria, not brushing your teeth, that causes cavities.

      Funny story… I believe I was in first grade when a dentist visited our school to talk about good dental health. He had those red tablets that you chew which then showed how much plaque is on your teeth. Anyway, he told us a story of one of his patients who loved peanut butter, and of what not to do… This young person loved peanut butter so much, before he went to bed, he would take a big glob of it and put it on the roof of his mouth, slowly sucking on it as he fell asleep. (Yuck.)

      I used to like Hershey’s chocolate, but my tastes have… matured. I don’t waste chewing Hershey’s chocolate any more. It’s gotta be Russell Stover’s, although many chocolate lovers like Lindt and Dove. I was thinking about doing one of those polls about which chocolate is the best… but most bloggers don’t like polls. 🙂
