Hello Everyone and Happy Monday 🙂

I thought we could start the week with a light and happy subject, something that never fail to make everybody happy: Food.

Now, this isn’t a shameless post that will lie to you and tell that stuffing your face and overindulging in every delicious food with no regards for carbs or calories is the only way to truly enjoy life. Moderation is good thing, believe it or not. You can’t miss something you constantly have.

Today, I just want to share with you how great I think some food are for your mental health. Coffee for example. Very non-popular opinion, I know. It must be just me, but I got to admit that I much more sociable and agreeable after I drank my morning latte. I might be snappy and generally bitter about life if you talk to me before I had it.

It feels like the necessary fuel that will make me function effectively during the day. I know that a lot of health studies says that coffee actually increase your aggressiveness and turn you into a dependent Starbucks junkie, but honestly, for me a good cup of coffee is very calming. It’s the little drop of satisfaction right before work.

So, coffee is one thing. But chocolate is the entire universe. I could travel the world for chocolate, I could married chocolate, I could built a empire for chocolate. During the day, the smallest piece of chocolate is enough to make me smile brightly and have me think “Darn, Life is good”.

How awful it is to think that some kids don’t have access to it? I would change that if I could, I truly would. I pity those who are allergic to cocoa, what a sad curse. I love chocolate. I’m not giving it up for anything, despite all the diets and tips, and craps that every magazine have been feeding us. “A moment on the lips, forever in the hips”?

Screw that.

They say that eating your feeling is not attractive? OK, but what if you’re feeling happy? What if the magical power contained in one piece of chocolate have the ability to turn you into the most charming person ever, while you were previously compared to Snow White’s dwarf Grumpy?

I understand society’s pressure for women to be thin, fit and tightened to the core, to be lean and mean like a spear. If you achieve that look for the right reasons and in a healthy way, I don’t see where the problem is. But I also don’t see any issue with eating what you want to eat, what makes you happy to eat, as long as you do with moderation. Let me tell you what’s unattractive: Deprivation. Starvation. Restriction.

Souls are not picky eaters, so let them eat. Enjoy today’s Shatzi.

Song of the day

Leona Lewis “Sugar”

First time and it tasted like honey,
I’m hooked, yeah, you know you got me,
Here I am, back again.

Close my eyes and it feels like summer,
I know I shouldn’t, but I know I’m gonna,
Here we go, kiss me slow.

And I know you’re bad,
Yeah, I know you’re no good for me
I’m aware of that,
And the only one that’s gon be
Sleepless at night & the paying the price will be me.

But sugar still taste like sugar,
It’s still sweet.
I should have never let it taken over,
I’m in too deep.
See, there is no better kinda way to describe it,
I know it’s bad for me,
But sugar still taste like sugar,
It’s still sweet.

My whole world changed from the moment I met you,
Shame on me, my mother told me better,
Here I am, back again.

You call and you know I’m coming
I can’t leave even if I wanted,
Here we go, kiss me slow.

and I know you’re bad,
Yeah, I know you’re no good for me
I’m aware of that,
And the only one that’s gon be
Sleepless at night & the paying the price will be me.

But sugar still taste like sugar,
It’s still sweet.
I should have never let it taken over,
I’m in too deep.
See, there is no better kinda way to describe it,
I know it’s bad for me,
But sugar still taste like sugar,
It’s still sweet.

You got me, you got me
and I don’t want to say no,
Can’t leave you alone
Can’t seem to let go.

You got me, you got me
And I don’t want to say no.
Can’t leave you alone,
Can’t seem to let go

cause’ sugar still taste like sugar,
It’s still sweet.
I should have never let it taken over,
I’m in too deep.
See, there is no better kinda way to describe it,
I know it’s bad for me,
But sugar still taste like sugar,
It’s still sweet.
It’s still sweet.
It’s still sweet,
It’s still sweet,
You’re still sweet.
