Raw Chocolate is a Super Food!

Guilt free, super healthy and so enjoyable the following recipe is an example of how to simply incorporate raw cacao (chocolate in its raw form) into your diet. Raw cacao can be purchased in most local grocery and health food stores. No cooking ever necessary as this will destroy the beneficial enzymes and naturally occurring vitamins. This high anti-oxidant food can easily be added to smoothies, raw cookies or as a simple breakfast drink.
