You must try cacao, its the new healthy high!

Have you tried cacao yet? it is amazing and the new healthy trend that is taking the UK by storm.

Raw Cacao (pronounced Ka-cow)

It is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cocoa and removes the fat (cacao butter), you can get it in various forms, nibs ( like little chocolate chips), beans, powder and in blocks. It is the purest form of chocolate you can get.

What better than pampering yourself with a hot chocolate made with Sicilian orange oil, cacao, almond milk and maple syrup.

It’s blumming delicious!

Top 5 tips to a healthier YOU!

To help you on your way to living purer without toxins I have compiled a handy top 5 tips guide to enhance your health for you to browse through, if you can do all 5 then you get an A star, but seriously even changing one thing makes you awesome and on your way to detoxify your body from years of nasty chemicals.

1. Avoid contact with synthetic pesticides, this is a biggy and impacts your life in many ways, things like flea treatments, head lice shampoo, non organic fruit and veg, insect repellent, bleach, some swimming pools and some paint. Look for alternative chemical free treatments such as essential oils and coconut oil. Wash non organic veg in cider vinegar.

2. Always filter tap water before drinking it to remove impurities, we have a Brita filter and can tell the difference when drinking un-filtered tap water, we get sore throats and it taste quite chemical.
3. If you eat fish avoid farmed Salmon ,Tuna, Swordfish (the older and bigger the fish the more mercury and chlorine they have ingested) Eat an apple or wholegrain beans with the fish as it binds with the mercury in the intestine and most of it comes out in your poo. Take chlorella or psyllium husks,you can also get mercury free omega 3 oils.

4. Don’t microwave or heat up food in plastic containers particularly if they have a high fat content as the heat will make the plastic chemicals leach into your food and this can cause fertility problems, cancer, asthma, brain and nervous problems and obesity.
5. Avoid mercury in dental fillings, ask for porcelain or white fillings ( the dentist will try to convince you they don’t last as long as amalgam ones but stay firm) Mercury has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, kidney and brain damage.
