Our bodies thrive best when they flow with the seasons and it's up to us to adapt in a way that still helps our best selves shine through. Naturally, when it's cold and dark out, it's a time to nurture ourselves and preserve our energy until the spring. That said, it does not mean staying in and never moving our bodies or disregarding any activities that helps us feel nourished - physically, emotionally, and mentally.Read More
I can't say it enough: quality, quality, quality. If we want a good quality of life, then it would make sense to do things, eat things, and say things that add quality to our life. Chances are that a refined sweetener or conventional chocolate bar in your mocha will not add much quality to your day. You might experience sugar crash, inflammation or headache, and not even enjoy having it.
To support feeling energized (which is probably why you drink coffee in the first place), alert, and satisfied, I've created a Live A Lot Mocha drink that leaves you feelings SO GOOD. I use our Live A Lot Chocolate combined with coconut oil and raw honey to add both sweetness and healthy fat.Read More
My whole life I have loved chocolate and always found ways to enjoy it. I craved it. When I embarked on my chocolate-making journey a few years ago, my first reason for doing so was because I simply wanted to make healthy chocolate that tasted amazing. Through that process of learning how to make chocolate, I also connected to cacao (the main ingredient that makes up chocolate) on a much deeper level than I ever had before. Cacao is a plant that was referred to as 'Food of the Gods' by the Aztecs hundreds of years ago. Both Aztecs and Mayans treated cacao as a sacred food that was shared in ritual and ceremony in a beverage form. By working with cacao and sourcing the highest quality I know, I really learned the power of cacao and how it wasn't just a food that made this sweet treat I enjoyed often. It shifted my perspective on life, healing, and spirituality. There was so much depth and wisdom in cacao that I began to treat it differently.Read More
