Brain-Power Snacks for the Desk & Backpack

Brain-Power Snacks for the Desk & Backpack

Here it is – 2:00 PM. Whether you’re sitting in a lecture at college, at the office or just trying to keep up with little kids, the afternoon sure does have a way of bringing on that… sludgy feeling. It’s difficult to concentrate. Motivation and productivity take a nose-dive. We may look to snacks to get us through the final hours of the day, but often times, we reach for the wrong things, like chips or a Diet Coke, and it seems to help, at first. But before long we’re right back to that heavy, drowsy feeling, only worse. Do you have a hard time getting through the afternoon slump? If so, you’re not alone. And fortunately, there are tons of great snacks that are healthy, energy-boosting and good for your cognitive function. Here are some brain-power snacks for the desk and backpack that you can bring to work or school and get that boost of mental and physical energy!   Healthy, Energy-Boosting Snacks for Brain Power   Berries Blackberries, blueberries and strawberries have all shown to have a positive effect on brain function. Loaded with antioxidants, berries improve the communication between brain cells. Keep a baggie of these in your lunch box and you’ll be firing on all cylinders.   Nuts & Seeds Nuts and seeds (especially pumpkin seeds) are packed with Vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids. Both of these nutrients have linked to better brain function and improved cognition!    Dark Chocolate Chocolate’s main ingredient, cacao, is good for your mental health! According to this study, cacao flavonoids encourage neuron growth and blood vessel function (which increases blood...

A Chocolate Bouquet for Valentine’s Day

A Chocolate Bouquet for Valentine’s Day

Giving the gift of fresh flowers on Valentine’s Day sure is thoughtful and kind. But what if you could combine that thoughtfulness with the decadence and indulgence of chocolate, too? So we created BonBon Blooms™ – a chocolate bouquet for Valentine’s Day! We took delicious truffles and chocolates and artfully arranged them in pretty vases and bases to resemble the freshest bunch of blossoms. We think it’s more exciting than fruit and more enticing than flowers! When fine chocolates are gathered together to make a gorgeous bouquet, it’s truly a memorable gift.   BonBon Blooms™ for Valentine’s Day     BonBon Blooms™ Hearts Bursting Bouquet Send hugs & kisses this Valentine’s Day!

Five Luscious Chocolate Recipes for Fall

Five Luscious Chocolate Recipes for Fall

Feeling like every single sweet thing is pumpkin-spiced these days? We feel you. Good news! This Sunday October 28th is National Chocolate Day. Above the caramel, above the peanut butter, above the -dare I say it- *lowers voice to whisper, looks around* pumpkin spice, it’s no secret that chocolate reigns supreme when it comes to desserts and sweets. Of course it’s always fun to put a little twist on your baking to celebrate the current season, so here are five luscious chocolate recipes that are perfect for Fall. National Chocolate Day – October 28   Chocolate Chunk Cinnamon Cookies Cinnamon adds that deliciously warm flavor that’s absolutely perfect for Fall baking. Besides, who wouldn’t love the flavor of Mexican Hot Chocolate encased in a warm, fudgy cookie? Two, please – one for each hand! This recipe comes to us from Love From The Oven.   Tahini & Halva Brownies This recipe is from NPR’s awesome food podcast The Splendid Table, via Yotam Ottolenghi, an incredible Israeli-British chef, bestselling cookbook author and restaurant owner. The recipe might sound a little off the beaten path, but the combination of savory and sweet is to die for. No one, and we mean no one, will be able to resist these. Bring them to Thanksgiving at the in-laws and gain major brownie points! (See what I did there? Eh? Nudge Nudge.)   Chocolate Pecan Pie What kind of recipe blog would this be if we didn’t mention the Queen herself? We all know pecan pie; that divine southern dessert that simply defines fall and comfort. Now add dark chocolate.   Chocolate Glazed Espresso Cheesecake Coffee is...
