I'm Jo!

As a health coach & personal trainer I love helping people build a more balanced life.

With foods that nourish your body and are low-sugar. And functional exercise to help with mobility.

hello,

This raw homemade chocolate was what helped me when I decided to start cutting back on sugar over 7 years ago.

It’s also only three ingredients and takes 5 minutes to make. What could be better!

Is Cacao the same as Cocoa?

The beans to make both cocoa and cacao come from the same tree. However, cocoa is a more processed version, which is why it has a sweeter taste than cacao powder, but because of that cocoa powder loses some of its nutritional value in the process.

Is Cacao a superfood?

Superfood is a word that’s thrown around a lot, and cacao is often on that list. Cacao is the rawest form of chocolate and it does have a slightly bitter taste. It’s processed at low temperatures unlike the beans used to create cocoa powder, so cacao offers a range of health benefits.

Some of the health benefits cacao has been reported to have include;

Flavonoids: These may help in reducing inflammation and increase insulin sensitivity.

Nutrition: Cacao provides a source of iron, protein, magnesium, fiber, and potassium.
