Drinking Cacao

I have been doing some research into drinking cacao and came across this brand called CaCoCo. Their product is outstanding but their business model is also incredible. They really care about the environment and that makes me grin ear to ear. Their packaging is recyclable and the bag the cacao is in is compostable. They…

Chocolate Pudding

This chocolate pudding is seriously better than a Snack Pack. I used to eat a Snack Pack nearly every day as a kid. We’d top them with some Oreos and add in some gummy worms and it was the best dirt and worms ever. This variation is actually good for you. The chocolate taste comes from cacao…

Spicy Chocolate Bark

The spicy chocolate bark was another addition to our Savor the Moment chocolate and wine meditation. This was my favorite. The spice gave it just the right kick. I also made coffee, almond and coconut chocolate bark, Almond Joy energy balls and chocolate, oat, flaxseed energy balls. Let me know in the comment section which chocolate…

Coffee, Almond and Coconut Chocolate Bark

My friend Angie Starz and I did this Savor the Moment event. It was a meditation experience in which we paired wines and chocolates together and had each participant really experience the various components. This coffee bark was an interesting creation I made because it was the one dish I almost didn’t try. Coffee makes…

Almond Joy Energy Balls

A little coconut, chocolate and almonds go a long way. Back at it again with the energy balls. Energy balls are part of my meal prep routine each week. They totally help with that 3pm energy boost. The adaptogens add a nice stress relief and the Sex Dust has a chocolate taste, which makes for a…

Healthy Hot Chocolate

My sister is obsessed with hot chocolate and I’m obsessed with eating and drinking things out of her ceramics (almost all my photos are taken in her bowls or mugs). I invited her over the other night for dinner and hot cocoa. Thankfully, I tested this recipe beforehand since she’s quite the chocolate snob. It…

Chocolate Peppermint Energy Balls

Chocolate Peppermint Energy Balls

Peppermint essential oil is one of my absolute favorites. You can put it on the back of your neck if you’re feeling a little hot. It’s great for digestion and freshening your breath. These energy bites are begging to be eaten as they sit in my refrigerator. Add more or less salt depending on your…

Pumpkin Oat Energy Bites

Pumpkin, Oat, Sacha Inchi Seed, Chocolate Energy Balls

Sacha Inchi seeds have been my ingredient of choice over the last week or two. They’re so interesting and have the perfect nutty flavor. If you hang out with me often, you’ll know that I always am bringing around random foods for people to try. So if you’ve been with me in the last two…

chocolate, coconut, date energy bites

Chocolate, Coconut, Date Energy Balls

When I start to get that chocolate craving, cacao powder is my go-to! It’s absolutely delicious in energy bites and many other things. Stay tuned for my chocolate milk I’ll be making in the next few weeks for my chocolate-obsessed sister, Grace! Anyhow, these bites are a perfect thing to pop in before a yoga…

Chocolate Date Power Bars

Ever since I was a kid, I have been a sucker for sweets. My mind was blown when I discovered this mouthwatering recipe. Dates are a great fruit that will satisfy any sweet tooth craving. These magnificent fruits grow on date palm trees in hot, dry climates. Dates are filled with potassium, keeping you invigorated with energy….
