Almost everyone loves chocolate. I said almost because I have a friend and she doesn’t like chocolate. I know this sounds unbelievable but it is true.
In past, I was drinking coffee to eat chocolate. After integrating the healthy diet into my life, I started to pay attention to ingredients.
Chocolate has many benefits especially dark chocolate which is my favorite but when I read ingredients, I realized that most of them are not healthy. Even some famous brands chocolates have bad ingredients. But still there are amazing brands who produce delicious and healthy chocolates.
Since one year, I don’t eat chocolate like I used to eat. Instead I bake cake, prepare fruit with yogurt or oatmeal bowl. I love to add cacao nibs instead of chocolate pieces.
Cacao nibs are very healthy . They are literally direct source of chocolate. Cacao nibs are the bean that chocolate comes from. They taste bitter. So, instead of picking up a candy bar, choose cacao nibs as a snack.
In today’s post, I would like to share health benefits of cacao nibs.
