Yes its time to get mushy, lovey and romantic. Why not celebrate love every day?!
This is my treat to myself for Valentine’s day. And this treat is entirely made of whole raw foods, pure and healthy! It’s actually a great food to have in the morning, as an energy boost … it’s a raw chocolate love cake!
Whoever you make this cake for is sure to be very happy, but once they take a bite, and the antioxidants hit their system, they will be buzzing with joy and love. Really! Raw cacao physically (and spiritually) can be considered a heart opening medicine. It helps stimulate cardiovascular function and clears out clogged arteries. It is packed with phytonutrients and a compound called “anandamide” ~ the bliss chemical.
So enjoy! And be in love ~ with your healthy self, your friends, your family, today and all days!
