Never too late for some chocolate
We love it, we crave it, we just can’t get over it; yes, we’re talking about CHOCOLATE!
Contrary to popular belief, chocolate is actually healthy, nourishing, and comes with a whole host of benefits if consumed in the right forms. But first, let’s get to the root (literally) of it: chocolate comes from a tropical evergreen tree called the Theobroma cacao tree. Cacao trees produce thousands of pods which contain seeds or beans- chocolate comes from these seeds!
Most varieties of chocolate available in the market are processed and have added sugar, which means the health benefits are nullified. But, when consumed in its raw form, chocolate is dark, delicious, and has phenomenal health benefits.
We ❤️ chocolate!
Cacao contains flavanols that help with lowering blood pressure and improving blood circulation, lowering the risk of heart disease. You really *oat* to try our Choco Oats Bar if you’re looking for a deliciously easy way to get your favourite food.
Chocolate = happiness
Raw cacao contains serotonin, anandamide, and theobromine, all of which improve the mood, reduce stress, and increase happiness levels! Start your mornings on the happiest note with our Cocoa Crunch Granola.
Studies indicate that polyphenols, such as those found in cacao may reduce your risk of neurodegenerative diseases by improving brain function and blood flow. Try our Cacao Roasted Cashews for an on-the-go dreamy dose of chocolate!
Cacao contains more antioxidants per gram than blueberries, goji berries, red wine, raisins, prunes and even pomegranates. These antioxidants help reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, and improve cholesterol levels! Get yourself some Chocolate Coconut Cookies the next time a chocolate craving hits.
Don’t keep calm, get your (raw) chocolate on!
