It’s fair to say we’ve all experienced a major sweet-tooth craving. But post-indulgence, we’ve also endured that dreadful sugar hangover. So we don’t want to tell you to outright shut the craving down (if you can, power to you!) but perhaps tweak it to work in your favor.
Here’s some intel--not all sugar is created equal. There’s better sweet alternatives that can actually leave you feeling bloat-free, headache-free, guilt-free, and even energized post-indulgence…
On this week’s Wellness Radar: Honey Mama’s Chocolate.
Why we love it? Clean-label. AKA, the real stuff--so you get all the health benefits without sacrificing taste… Seriously, these bars are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Raw cacao benefits include: antioxidants (reverse aging), flavonoids (lower blood pressure and increase insulin sensitivity to reduce risk of diabetes), and a healthy dose of magnesium, potassium, and iron, as highlighted by Harvard Health Publishing here. Checkout the comparison between Honey Mama’s and mainstream chocolate bars below--and note the difference in sugar.
How we enjoy it? Indulge directly or explore your creativity in the kitchen by breaking up the chocolate bars and folding them into your favorite cookie dough recipe. They also go great with yogurt, granola, or can be used to sweeten your smoothie. More inspiration here.
Where to buy it? Straight from the site.
Fun Fact: Female-founded by Christy Goldsby, who uses the highest quality, non-GMO, and organic ingredients, making these chocolates a delight sans-sugar-hangover.
