Chocolate?  Yes, please.  It is my favorite indulgence.  And with Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought I would share some healthier chocolate recipes to inspire you to create some yummy deliciousness for all the people that you love. 

Who doesn’t love chocolate? 

I know I do.  And I don’t feel bad about eating it.

Just be sure that you are eating good quality chocolate made with real food ingredients.  It’s all the other garbage that gets put into chocolate that is not good for us. Here’s a few tips for making healthier chocolate:

  1. Use organic raw cacao powder instead of cocoa powder.  It’s full of  antioxidant flavonoids and polyphenols that promote health and protect against toxins.  It also contains minerals like magnesium, manganese, and sulfur.
  2. Use a good quality food-grade cacao butter to make your chocolates.  Cacao butter, also known as cocoa butter, is a pure vegetable fat that’s extracted from the cacao bean.  It makes the purest and most smooth chcolate I have ever had.
  3. Use healthy fats like coconut oil, coconut butter, and cacao butter to make your homemade chocolate treats.  Read my take on what makes a fat healthy HERE.
  4. Avoid sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup and white sugar.  Use whole food sweeteners that still have some nutrients and minerals in them.  I prefer raw honey, real maple syrup, and coconut sugar.
  5. Stay away from chocolate that contains soy lecithin. Soy lecithin comes from sludge left after crude soy oil goes through a degumming process. It is a waste product, and manufacturers bleach it to make it the more appealing. Also, 90% of all soy is genetically modified and is heavily sprayed with toxic herbicides.  GROSS!

There are few brands of chocolate that do not contain soy lecithin:

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?

By J. Davis III

Category: HEALTH
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES

trackingRecently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.

Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.

Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.

Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.

Here’s how it works...

“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”

“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”

Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.

Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.

“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…

What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?

Mind blown...

Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”

So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.

Watch Liz’ free presentation. It’s packed with revolutionary weight loss information—information that works. Because it’s based on how nature works.
