It’s a double dark 🍫 type of Fri-YAY 🤣💃🏻⁣ ⁣ Dark chocolate protein powder, 1 tsp raw cacao, cacao nibs, 1/2 small avocado, chia and unsweetened almond milk. ⁣ ⁣ Cacao vs. Cocoa: ⁣ ⁣ Cacao is made by cold-processing unroasted cacao beans or low heat processing. (Most bitter) ☝🏻 Bitter can mean better when it comes to phytochemicals. Benefits include:⁣ -increases insulin sensitivity ⁣ -rich in minerals like magnesium, calcium and zinc⁣ -mood booster ⁣ -most polyphenols (anthocyanidins and epicatechins) ⁣ ⁣ Cocoa powder is cacao that has been roasted at high temperatures. Least bitter. ⁣ ⁣ …just remember if the “a” comes first it means raw or less cooked and if the “o” comes first it means cooked. There isn’t any comparative research but we know heating can oxidize oils, decrease enzymes and lower antioxidants. When you can please use raw cacao and remember dairy inhibits antioxidant absorption so finding a “dairy free” chocolate will increase bioavailability of the good stuff. ⁣ ⁣ Happy Friday friends!
