Well where do I start………….
I love chocolate always have always will!
What is not to love about it? Please feel free to comment below on your reasons for loving chocolate! Please do not bother replying with reasons for not loving chocolate as I am really not interested 😉
since becoming vegan there was a slight draw back….. No snickers, mars bar, milk chocolate etc etc Yes these are junk! Yes they are rubbish! However on certain occasions, PMT, men troubles, children troubles, life! Etc only a snickers would hit the spot for me. I had to come up with an alternative for these chocolate emergencies. Never in a million years did I think I would stumble upon the best Chocolate in the World! That is healthy, nutritious and tastes scrummy, yummy!
This chocolate is my own handmade raw vegan chocolate 🙂 Why is it the best in the world ? I can hear you thinking wow sort out the ego girly! It’s the best in the world because I can tailor it to my desires, tastes, needs and wants <3 If I fancy something dark ill make dark delicious Peruvian Choc with a shot of Balinese cacao added. If I fancy something light and creamy ill make some sweet and creamy caramac style Choc, if I'm feeling spicy ill make some chai Choc with added nutmeg, cinnamon, mixed spice and pepper. I think you are getting the idea. The first time I made some Choc I thought I'd gone to heaven after not eating Choc for a few months.
I have since found I have quite a creative flair for making Raw Chocolates and it certainly caused a stir with my friends. I started to share my chocolate making delivering workshops. My chocolate making has gone from strength to strength over the last year and a half. I have had the pleasure of learning new skills with Ooosha/Amy Levin and The Raw Chef/Russell James Amy’s course on chocolate making is amazing and has really inspired me to get creative. I have sold my chocolates internationally now 🙂 It is so amazing to be able to share the amazing flavours of Cacao The Cacao Spirit has been working with me ever since my first taste of raw cacao! I will write a different blog about my experience with the cacao spirit.

I started the day with a Green hemp smoothie I love these as they are filling nutritious, boost the immune system and are great fun to create. hemp is natures perfect food for Vegans/Vegetarians as it contains balanced amounts of omega 3, 6 and 9. Hemp is great for the brain, skin and all of our organs. I have stumbled upon a great article about hemp at hemptons

I had water throughout day then a salad at 5 pm
Unfortunately I tucked into the salad and had eaten half of it before I remembered to take a picture :-/
I used Kale in the salad, rocket, baby leaf, pine nuts, olives and I made a mint dressing with mint leaves, olive oil, tsp raw honey, tsp cider vinegar and dash lemon juice.
I had a raw chocolate desert after that I’d made previously from freezer.
Yum yum bubblegum 🙂
