MS Halloween and Chocolate

Fred Meyer Holiday Pumpkin Patch

Yea, not very scary! LOL

As we rapidly approach Halloween, probably the second biggest holiday where chocolate is indulged upon with Valentines Day being the first, I once again broach the subject of a few of chocolates healthy benefits. I’ve already discussed how chocolate is a huge anti-inflammatory treat as long as you eat the purer forms of chocolate with higher amounts of cocoa then the regular milk chocolate that is mostly available in grocery stores candy counters. And as long as you eat it remembering that moderation is the key here. And also remembering that chocolate, no matter what kind you eat, also has a high fat content that can make weight gain a real possibility if you consume to much.

I also wanted to add information that is new about a study using athletes. This study found that athletes who consumed small amounts of dark chocolate with a high cocoa content once a week of about 1.4 ounces just before working out found that their endurance was greatly enhanced. It appears that this rich chocolate acts to open veins and arteries allowing for greater blood flow which increases stamina. And if it helps athletes with their workouts I don’t see any reason that dark chocolate wouldn’t also help people with other diseases or disorders do the same thing during their exercise workouts including people with multiple sclerosis.

So please enjoy your Halloween and allow yourself a small indulgence without guilt as you celebrate All Hallows Day. The day we all chase away all of those negative spirits from our past. Be safe, and please, try to enjoy yourselves as we begin a long march towards the Fall and Winter Holidays to come!

And now I have a small favor to ask of anyone who might have either an Editor at a Book Publishing House or a Literary Agent in the family or as a friend. I’m trying to find either an Editor or an Agent that would give my book VISUS a serious read with the hopes of getting  my book out into the literary hands of the general public. Even if you get them to read the first chapter that is listed above in the title bar would be greatly appreciated by me.

Again, please have a safe Halloween weekend and enjoy your family and friends!

     I wonder how many people are aware that Subway Sub Shops were created by a group of health conscious Doctors who were disgusted with the fast food choices that Americans had to choose from without a real single healthy choice among the entire bunch. Subway set out to prove that you could get a wholesome low fat, low sugar, and low cholesterol meal for a reasonable price in the same amount of time that most fast food restaurants take to prepare a meal. I applaud Subways conscious effort to help and create a healthier lifestyle for all of the people who visit their unique restaurants and 100_0409offer their own customer support to a healthier world.

     And now I would like to ask Subway to do me a favor, I really want this incredible company to take a stand against Multiple Sclerosis and all of the autoimmune disorders like Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, as well as all of the other devastating diseases that fall into this category.

     And I have created a unique way of asking Subway for their help and support in the 100_0412battle against these terrible disorders that many of us fight on a daily basis. And it starts by asking you to support them by ordering one of their new Flatizza’s the next time you visit one their restaurants. But instead of having them use Marinara sauce for the base ask them to substitute it with Ranch Dressing instead of Marinara and I sincerely doubt that you will be disappointed with this switch, in fact, I like them even better with Ranch Dressing.

     If we can get enough people to order Flatizzas in this manner I’m hopping that Subway will commit to helping to end these incredibly debilitating diseases in our lifetime. And I am also sending a copy of this letter to Subway Corporate so they are aware of our fight and why we would like their support.

    100_0414 Please help me in this endeavor and order a Flatizza today with Ranch Dressing and enjoy something different that I hope will symbolize a new beginning and the end to these awful diseases!
