Heyaaa Powerfoodies! Did you know that today is World Chocolate Day? There’s no way we can just let this pass us by. Did you know that cacao gives you a pure energy boost, making it a great coffee alternative. Moreover, cacao is a natural source* of magnesium, which is protective against cardio-pulmonary diseases, high blood pressure and osteoporosis. Magnesium is good for your bones and teeth, it relaxes your muscles and helps combat stress. Cacao also contains a serotonin-like substance that helps improve mood. And, on top of all that, cacao is also an aphrodisiac: it increases sensory perception, which, in turn, can increase libido. Raw cacao powder is super easy to use when you’re prepping the tastiest things.
To celebrate World Chocolate Day, I’ve compiled my top-five favorite choco recipes just for you guys. I’d also love to hear what your favorite chocolate recipes are… Let me know in the comments? Even more chocolate to enjoy!
