I love Chocolate, don’t you? When you get to that 3pm mark at work, that sugar craving kicks in, what do you reach out for?

Then the mind starts to play the guilt trip game. Chocolate is bad. Chocolate will make you fat. Chocolate is full of sugar. Should everyone just stop eating chocolate? Why should we deny ourselves the things we enjoy in life all the time? I mean who says chocolate has to be bad?

Good quality, dark chocolate can be very nutritious and have a positive effect on our health.

IMG_0207Dark chocolate is made out of raw cacao which is full of antioxidants, healthy fats, vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B9, E, minerals including potassium, lowers the risk of heart disease and is a natural stimulant. All in moderation of course. Unfortunately, the vast majority of chocolate available contains a minimum amount of healthy cacao and has loads of sugar. This is the stuff you need to stay away from!

Of all the treats available, chocolate is one of the most craved foods in the world. The first solid chocolate bar, made from cacao butter, cacao powder and sugar, was introduced by the British chocolate company J.S. Fry & Sons in 1847, but the history of chocolate goes back at least 4,000 years. Chocolate is considered “the Food of the Gods”- it has remained a symbol of luxury, wealth, and power. So why not indulge in some good quality, raw chocolate from time to time?

After some thorough research and my own curiosity in this department,  I decided to do a little experimenting and get creative in my kitchen. Check out my protein packed, raw chocolate with goji berries & walnuts. It’s simple, delicious and nutritious.
