Excuse me for being obsessed with chocolate this week, you see I was without my beloved cacao for some time and I’ve finally replenished my stocks. Raw cacao is the ultimate in magnesium density, in other words, it relieves stress and helps release happy hormones, yay!
The chocolate week isn’t over yet, in the next few days you are going to witness a marvel of brownies- the lentil brownie.
But not today. Today is reserved for this luscious, creamy, caffeinated pudding loaded with chia goodness. Coconut mocha chia pudding may just be your new favourite breakfast or mid-day pick me up. I’m pretty much in love with the coffee, chocolate combination– nothing beats it.
Chia seeds are nutrient dense, high in omega-3’s and they can turn any liquid into a pudding, so what’s not to love. Well they aren’t easy to clean up when you leave a spoonful on the table and your little baby reaches up and pulls it down.
If you are in search of foods that will give you more energy and focus, this pudding is for you. There’s definitely a certain time of the month for me where my energy starts to go down the drain and I just want to eat chocolate…ladies, ya feel me?
Yesterday I wallowed while watching the hollywood version of Anna Karenina, which by the way, is pretty terrible. You know when you have tons of work to do, but you just don’t want to do it…yeah netflix is an instigator.
But the cure for all wallowing lies in chocolate, so I will continue to share with you loves my fave choco-freak recipes to inspire your inner energy to shine~ !!!
