February Food 2 B Fit

February was chocolate month at Panorama and last month’s Food 2 B Fit was no exception. The featured food was a surprising combination of chocolate and chili.

Residents in attendance learned that eating chili peppers releases “feel good” endorphins and that dark chocolate contains serotonin, which acts as an anti-depressant.
