My special guest today is the vibrant and charismatic Jessica Dee. I haven’t known Jessica long (just a few days, in fact), but I knew as soon as I met her that she was a perfect guest for the podcast, and I’m delighted that she agreed.
Jessica was born and raised in Illinois until her family moved to Colorado as a result of her father being in a debilitating car accident (a story that she’ll explain in more depth in our conversation). In high school, she explains that she got either A’s or F’s depending on the subject, and she didn’t believe college was the right choice for her. Instead, she wanted to see the world, so she joined the Marines right before 9/11.
Instead of regretting her choice, Jessica relished the opportunity to serve her country in its time of need, all while fulfilling her wish to see more of the world. She spent a year each in Haiti, Prague, and Havana. During her 13 years in the Marines, she filled many different roles, which she’ll talk about in this episode.
As interesting as all that is, the real reason that Jessica is here today is to talk about a subject that’s near and dear to many of our hearts: chocolate. For many of us, chocolate is one of those taboo treats that we know we shouldn’t have (except for the occasional piece of dark chocolate).
Jessica is here to change all that. She works with Esthechoc, a company that makes chocolate that’s not only permitted, but even encouraged as part of a healthy diet. Their antioxidant-packed treats are actually categorized as supplements rather than candy! Instead of giving everything away here, though, I’ll let Jessica tell you more in the episode.
You can find Dr. Chandler George here:

[07:14] - Jessica lists some resources, then explains why not everything that says it has antioxidants is equally good for the body.
