I found health and wellness almost two years ago through something I loved eating anyway, just wasn't eating the right kind......chocolate. I had gained an incredible amount of weight, was unhappy in my job and where I lived, I was watching my body start down the same path my mother's had at my age with arthritis, and was just basically unhappy in life. It didn't help that I was an emotional eater and chocolate happened to be one of my favorite comfort foods along with pop and chips.
Thankfully a friend didn't give up on me with all my negative whining, she introduced me to research on how to still eat chocolate, but get healthy by doing it. Today, I am 70lbs. lighter and maintaining, I'm off the cholesterol medications after almost 12 years, I'm eating and drinking the amazingly high antioxidant food called cacao daily and have never been healthier! My dental check ups are perfect now, my joint swelling and pain from the arthritis is gone, my life is balanced and happy!
Am I out to sing the praises of what dark, unprocessed raw cacao can do for health, you bet I am! The key is education and know why there is only truly one healthy chocolate and it isn't found on store shelves. It is the only cold pressed cacao, non alkalized, no refined sugars, no added fats, no milk, gluten free, kosher, etc. It is combined with other super fruits in antioxidants, acai berries, blueberries, etc. It is a delicious, rich, creamy, theraputic, exclusive dark Belgian chocolate, unbelievable, but true, it takes raw cacao back to the Aztec era where it was the "Food of the Gods" before we turned it into candy in modern times.
I am making it my mission to tell as many people as possible how life changing it can be to just add the amount of antioxidants to our bodies each day and it can be achieved as simply as exchanging the bad chocolate for the good, how amazing and exciting is that?!
