Cacao – a pretty cool superfood

Share This Post

As much as we would like to think that Cadbury chocolate bars are healthy because they came from ‘cacao’ (which is true in a way), the real health benefits of cacao or cocoa or chocolate are when it is delivered in its raw form. I have found some pretty interesting stuff in health food shops around town lately and raw organic cacao has been a great find. You can sprinkle this on your high protein cereal, put in to a smoothie with almond milk and a touch of honey and it can even do a pretty good job at replacing coffee as a hot drink!

“In comparison by weight, cacao has more antioxidant flavonoids than blueberries, red wine, or black and green teas. In fact, it has up to four times the quantity of antioxidants found in green tea. The Aztecs called the cacao “yollotl eztli,” which literally means “heart blood;” they understood the benefit this truly powerful superfood has on the cardiovascular system” Heidi Flagley, holistic nutritionist – check out this link for some things you may not know about cacao/cocoa http://www.naturalnews.com/029156_cacao_chocolate.html

And here is a link to the stuff I bought recently. It is a great product for so many reasons. I have no shares in this product but I soon might!

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
