Day 17: Cacao Nibs as a Superfood!

day 17

Cacao nibs have been enjoyed for thousands of years in South American cultures – and for good reason!  They are a raw part of the Cocoa bean, before it is processed into chocolate.  Cacao nibs are one of the world’s highest known sources of magnesium, contain a small amount of fiber, iron and even anti-oxidants.

Since it is the base of chocolate, it works much the same in signalling neurotransmitters in the brain to improve mood.  That’s right, a healthy superfood that literally works to keep you happier!  I’ll take that any day 🙂
