Are you familiar with cacao aka raw chocolate? Bursting with nutrients, it is so different than the Hershey bar you may have your eye on. I love cacao because of the health benefits – it has lots of whole food nutrients. And I like to experiment and try using it in different ways – in smoothies and recipes.
Truth is, it is bitter to me in it’s raw form, but with a little imagination, you can do all kinds of creative things and get all the health benefits too! What’s better than a simple and quick way to focus on healthy eating and make you feel good at the same time?!
