Here are just a FEW of the reasons we love cacao: 

  1. It's choc-a-block full of antioxidant goodness 
  2. It can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or/AND dinner
  3. It has natural anti-inflammatory properties
  4. It can improve cardiovascular function by lowering blood pressure, improving blood flow, lowering LDL cholesterol, and reducing plaque buildup on artery walls.
  5. It's melty and gooey
  6. It's a natural source of magnesium and zinc 
  7. It goes with EVERYTHING. Oh yeah, I said it. EVERYTHING. 
  8. This mood enhancing magic comes from the amino acid tryptophen which is abundantly found in raw cacao and causes aphrodisiac and relaxation effects.
  9. It also contains something called  a nandamide which is a fat found in cacao that has earned the name "the bliss molecule". It's feel good properties are due to its   natural molecular shape which mimics that of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.
  10. IT makes the perfect gift for ALL occasions i.e. : "I'm sorry", "I love you", "You're the best friend ever!", "Happy Birthday!", "Sorry for your loss", "Congrats!", "Happy Valentines day" "Valentines day is for suckers" or my favourite, "JUST BECAUSE".

Having a hard time remembering the last time you had a full night's sleep? Or maybe you're someone who can  sleep 6 or more hours a night but still wake up feeling unrefreshed. You're not alone. North American's are seeing a steady increase in sleeping issues - which to me is not surprising with more and more glowing screens, stress, and poor sleep habits on the rise as well.

Summer is here and I could not be happier! As the temperature heats up in Toronto, I find myself turning more and more to iced matcha vs. my regular traditional hot cup every morning.

If you've never tried matcha iced, what better way to cool off than with a refreshing glass of citrus-cool, energy packed matcha?
