I love chocolate. Back in the day I thought it was going to be so hard to be vegan knowing I might never have chocolate again.
BUT then I discovered that it is possible to have compassion for all animals AND eat my sumptuous chocolate cake with velvety ganache frosting too.
Since then I’ve learned the benefits of consuming raw cacao: high magnesium, high iron, high zinc, rich in polyphenols, plentiful mood-boosting l-theanine, and more amazingness being discovered as time marches on.
Dabbling with recipes and creating many of my own, plus knowledge of all this awesome, and it’s now so hard for me to let a day go by without indulging in something chocolaty.
