Did you know that chocolate is a super-food?
Raw Cacao Chocolate is Super high on the anti-oxidant spectrum with tons of good healing effects.
Unfortunately, most chocolate that is in supermarkets is heavily processed, refined, diluted and mixed with sugar, milk and other not-so-good ingredients that it becomes a junk food.
What if you could eat raw chocolate? Raw Chocolate is a healthy super food that can satisfy a sweet craving, without the guilt…and without triggering the roller coaster.
At first when trying raw cacao some people find it a little bit bitter. This is only natural since you are used to eating the processed form…this is why I am also going to give you my super yummy recipe for RAW CACAO BALLS.
