Who says eating healthy has to be boring or all just veggies??

I truly believe that things in moderation and of course the healthier versions are always better options!!

Raw cacao before highly processed and cooked (ie all our chocolate bars etc that we can buy at check outs or in grocery stores) have no nutritional value what so ever and have a ton of processed white sugar – something that brings no nutritional value to the body and literally takes from the body as well!

It’s incredible too when you can sneak in superfoods  – tasty yet healthy and nutritious like none other!!

There are healthy alternatives – I hope you experiment with the recipe and create what truly tantalizes your taste buds or just enjoy as is!!

Raw Superfoods Chocolate

Melt the Cacao Butter over a double boiler on low heat.

Once melted stir in remaining ingredients and mix well until all is dissolved and smooth

Pour into chocolate molds or into a glass square baking dish and store in fridge for best results (may soften if out at room temp) and to keep longer.

Raw Superfoods Chocolate gives you the chance to enjoy sweets without the guilt. It’s really a healthy way to savor the goodness of chocolates.

Easy, quick, tasty and only a couple of ingredients!!

And the best part is you really don’t have to measure anything – doesn’t get much easier than that!!

Oh and the fact that it is raw AND vegan – you wouldn’t think so!!

With summer coming, you can try many different flavors – it’s a cool treat or heck even for breakfast 🙂

For the recipe here I did measure just to give you an idea but I’ve made this many times and have never measured.

– 2 frozen Banana’s

– 22 frozen Strawberries

– 1/2 cup cashews soaked for about 10 mins

 

Put all ingredients in a food processor  and process until smooth – you will need to stop it and scrape the sides down often.

Cashews are optional – they add more of the creaminess like an ice cream, without them it’s more like sherbert and it’s the same for either recipe.

Get creative – use blueberries, mango, peaches any fruit really that can be frozen – kids love this!!

It tastes pretty yummy, satisfying and it’s healthy – and good to the last spoonful!!

Healthy and Raw

Healthy and Raw……

What does that mean to you?

Do you think of eating just carrots sticks and salads all the time?

Giving up everything you like to eat?

Being hungry a lot?

Some people even ask  ‘meat too’?

I wanted to share with you what I think that healthy and raw mean to me and why I choose those words.

Healthy – to feel good, no great, to look good, have that sparkle in the eye, to have a presence that is confident, calming, energetic, grateful, peaceful, inviting, inspiring, motivating and happy.

Raw – for me that is real food, simple, easy, alive, BUT also me…..(ok maybe not simple) but alive, real and authentic.

Yes this is about eating raw foods, because I believe that what we put into our bodies, our food choices, does affect our thoughts, our emotions, our moods.  So, when we clean up our diet ( and what works best for you may be different than me) and make that more of a lifestyle, we can become clearer.  We feed our bodies, and clean our bodies.  With a clean body we have a cleaner mind and we can become more real, more raw, more authentic.

To me being raw means being real.  I had to go through a lot of dark nights to learn that.  My food choices over the years has played a huge role for me.

When one decides to bring in more real, live,  raw foods into their life, they have more time…….really.

How much time do you read labels looking for carbs, fats, calories, proteins etc?  How much time do you waste weighing yourself and fretting over the numbers on the scales?  Looking through magazines for the latest ‘diet’ or pill or whatever else is new?  How often are you tired and just don’t have the energy?

I could go on.

Is that the real you?

Healthy and Raw – alive, energy, sparkle, beautiful, confident, happy, real

Love to hear your thoughts!!

Here is to your health and being real!!
