Cacao Seeds are a Super Fruit!

Oh....I just know some of you are really going to love this! 

"Cacao seeds are a "Super Fruit"..........


What the heck are cacao seeds and what do we do with them??

Here is everything you want and need to know about cacao seeds:
Raw Cacao

Cacao seeds = CHOCOLATE!!

Chocolate is a rich source of antioxidants and contains more polyphenols and flavanols than fruit juice. Research published in the open access journal Chemistry Central Journal proves it!

Read all about it here......

Don't get too excited just yet!  This doesn't mean we can sit and devour a giant bag of Peanut M&M's every night in front of TV!

This is poor quality chocolate and loaded with sugar, artificial colors, and other ingredients your body doesn't need.

What this does mean is we can enjoy a small portion of good quality chocolate made from cacao seeds. Every day if we want it.  Think dark chocolate. Dark chocolate is rich and slightly sweet. It's satisfying and when we eat it..... those "feel good" endorphins kick in to help us feel relaxed and even a little amorous.  Hmmmm.....

So....go ahead and bake with it, mix yourself up a cup of home made hot cocoa or enjoy a square of dark chocolate. You'll be happy, you will never feel deprived, and giving yourself permission to enjoy might just keep you away from the office vending machine or that chocolate cream pie in fridge just begging to be devoured.
