AND NEVER MISS A NEW POST
By ascendbody | October 13, 2017 |
We do our best to maintain a relationship of balance and moderation with foods we label as “treats” (or as the folks at Whole30 hilariously call them, Sex With Your Pants On foods). When it comes to chocolate, however, it’s virtually impossible to practice self-restraint. The good news is that chocolate isn’t all that bad. In fact it’s pretty amazing for your body. Raw cacao packs twice the amount of antioxidants as blueberries. It also contains less caffeine than decaf coffee. Instead it has a gentle stimulant known as theobromine, which gives you long-lasting energy without the crash, anxiety or jitteriness that comes with coffee.
Things to look out for in chocolate bars or products are the added ingredients, such as milk, soy, and sugar. These can cause the weight gain, hormone and nervous system changes associated with chocolate consumption. But we’ve got the right recipe for you to get your chocolate fix. This mouthwatering Mousse au Chocolat. It’s paleo, super easy to make, and the right kind of sweet. Enjoy!
