Chocolate :: Raw, Healthy Goodness

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.” ~Charles M. Schulz

It's good to try new things, especially if you're focused on creating a healthier lifestyle for yourself or your family! Many are now being told that they must eliminate gluten, excess carbs, added sugar and dairy, because of health concerns and food sensitivities. If this is the case for you, I believe that you'll be happier and more successful if you find ways to continue enjoying food by finding creative ways to eat, and avoid foods that contribute to autoimmune problems, inflammation and other health concerns. Restriction tends to be a recipe for relapse. 

Healthy, raw fats like coconut oil and avocado helps your body manage sugar better. We get the pleasant experience of sweet, with significantly less "crash." Nature's exquisite elixir honey, in addition to raw cacao, both contain an abundance of B-vitamins, antioxidants and essential minerals--all natural immune system boosters. Enjoy this "guilt-free" and very satisfying, healthy raw and yummy desserts.
