Did you know that the first ingredient on the list is always the one in the highest amount of the content in a product?
So if the first ingredient is sugar, lecithin or xylitol and the Cocoa mass and butter are the last, you are not benefiting from that dark chocolate at all.No antioxidants for you just plain sugar. Find dark chocolate with a minimum 60% cocoa mass and first on the list of ingredients and as for last coconut sugar when possible. Shorter the list of ingredients the more ‘clean’ the product is.
Here’s one of my favourite combos :
-Dark cacao 95% no fat extracted. Cocoa improves brain health and antioxidant capacity, relieves bronchial asthma and enhances mood, those are just some of the work Cocoa does for you. Its Latin name Theobroma Cacao means ‘the Tree of Gods’ and it's been used by Mayans and Aztecs in their rituals, it’s gender is Feminine and Dark Chocolate magical properties are related to Love, Romance, Grounding, Prosperity.
-Blood Oranges are high in Vitamin C, preventing sun damage with its high content of antioxidants, it alkalizes the body and keeps good eye health with its Vitamin A content. Its element is Fire and the planet is Sun. Magical properties are inspiration, creativity and imagination. Oranges carry uplifting energy and can help generate happiness and joy. They attract abundance and good fortune. Give oranges as a gift to your friends and loved ones to express the sentiment of blessings, joy, and friendship.
