Some folks live for Christmas morning when the box of doughnuts and the hot chocolate are put out for breakfast. Others grab a bagful on the way to work. Many have doughnuts for social and civic gatherings. There’s just no way to put a value on the best Chicago donuts, is there? Want to know why they’re good for you? Read on.
Donut Eaters Are Happier
We bet you’ve never seen anyone with a donut in their hand who wasn’t smiling. Smiles cause endorphins to be released in our brains. Endorphins make us happy. Thus, donuts are good for your mental and emotional health.
Donuts Improve Memory
Donuts provide something the whole body as well as the brain needs. Sugars are morphed into glucose in the blood stream. Glucose provides energy to the muscles and a specific neurotransmitter called acetylcholine in the brain. This neurotransmitter is vital to memory, the mood, and paying attention. Need to think? Grab a donut.
“Healthy” Foods Often Contain More Sugar
Americans are more health conscious now than ever before. Accordingly, the food industry, in order to sell its products, are labeling their products as “low-fat,” “whole grain,” and “gluten free.” These products contain more sugar in one serving than three of the best Chicago donuts. Nor are the labels exactly truthful, but that’s a fact for Americans to check out on their own.
Everyone Needs A “Cheat Day”
Diets are restrictive for a reason, but they mess with the mind. Cravings are the body’s way of telling us it needs something. Generally, it’s when the body has suffered through bland, unexciting foods with no fats, sugars, or gluten which fills us up. That donut you’re contemplating might be gluten-free, reduced sugar, and low-fat. It does no harm to ask, and it will do less harm to eat it.
