Whoa, two blog posts in two days from me?! I've gone cuckoo I tell ya! :)
It's Valentine's Day (well, tomorrow), which means chocolate. Mmmm...good stuff. Now, most of us are aware of the many health benefits it has. Antioxidants, magnesium, potassium and so on, so here's a little video talking about this very thing.
You know what I say? Go find some RAW chocolate. The doc in the video mentions for the most health benefits look for chocolate that's the least processed. Hmm, that means raw cacao doesn't it? She doesn't say that but I do. Okay, for some of us it's a little harder to find (and a little more expensive) than say your standard Twix bar but if you can, find some and splurge for the holiday! There are options out there however, I'm a big fan of Gnosis Chocolate (I highly recommend my fave, the Cool Peppermint).
Raw cacao, including raw chocolate bars, is the way to go. With the raw "candy bars" you get the most health benefits vs. the other stuff and they're organic and dairy-free (you'd never know or would never miss it) and they're TASTY so you won't be missing out on anything - just pure goodness.
And that's all I have to say about that (yes, I watched Forest Gump recently).
