RAW // VEGAN // PALEO // SUGAR- FREE
This super sexy superfood chocolate mylk recipe has my heart. I’m a chocolate lover, raw chocolate that is. Raw chocolate is incredibly healthy and nourishing. It has three major nutrient profiles that you’ll love:
1. NATURAL LOVE DRUG. Raw cacao has a mood-enhancing compound called PEA or phenethylamine AKA the love drug. It triggers the release of endorphins and pleasurable opium-like neurochemicals. So basically we feel like we’re in love! This to me is a good thing, sometimes we need a little help finding our heart and feeling love. It’s important to get there on our own, but it’s nice to have a helper that is natural and non toxic. Make sure it’s organic and raw.
2. GOOD MOOD FOOD. Boost your happiness naturally, sometimes you need a little energy and mood enhancer. I know I can get cranky and cacao helps majorly. In my opinion, cacao is one of the best superfoods you can eat. It contains a mood improver called anandamide – known as the bliss molecule, which creates a feeling of euphoria. Just another great reason to eat this yummy superfood.
3. FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH. Cacao helps us stay youthful and glowing– polyphenol antioxidants found in cacao belong to the same group of antioxidants as green tea and red wine. Anthocyanins and catechins create a barrier around your cells that protect against premature oxidation. Basically it fights free radicals and fills you with antioxidants.
