Eating Chiles and Chili Makes One Happier

Eating Chiles and Chili Makes One Happier

You know, I read the other day that the happier you are-not only the healthier you are-but also the more money you will make (and even if that is not important)-the more fun you will have!

And you know, eating chiles and chili makes that happen. Chiles are about the most healthy food there is-no kidding. And one of the very best delivery systems is chili-big bowls of the red and green stuff, that have simmered for hours.
Nothing like eating it, year ‘round. And you ask-how does that work? It is because chiles stimulate the endorphin system or simply put-they stimulate all of you-your entire body, making it have a sense of euphoria or happiness-a high in other words.

The healthiest cultures around the world all seem to eat lots of chiles-at least 24 days out of 30.

I keep having so much with my Chili Madness promotion. The presentation at the Smithsonian was a total blast and it was filmed. I will work to get it on twitter-which you just have to check out.

I seriously love to share chile knowhow and cooking hints and tips with chiles-are you getting my free e-newlsetters-Butel's Bytes and are you a member yet of my cooking club-"Cooking with Jane"? Go to to sign up. All of these, plus my cooking classes, whether live face-to face full participation or on-line classes, really feature chile and chili know-how.

Here's to chile health and happiness and until next time,

Jane Butel
