How Do I Get My Chocolate Fix on a Raw Diet?

Easy. Eat raw chocolate, or better known in the Raw Food world as “Cacao Beans and Nibs.” Some say, and I agree, that “raw chocolate is the new red wine.” And why shouldn’t it be? Studies show raw chocolate as being the number one source of magnesium, as well as the number one source of antioxidants of any whole food. And, it contains phenylethylamine (PEA) — this is what our brains secrete when we fall in love. Need I say more?

You can eat the Cacao Beans or Nibs straight up or you can grind them into a powder and mix with dried fruit, agave nectar or raw almond butter (divine!). You can purchase raw chocolate powder and cacao nibs here. There is so much you can do with raw chocolate, which is why I teach an entire class dedicated to raw chocolate called Raw Chocoholics Anonymous.
