Smooth, rich and creamy; my hot chocolate with dates and tahini is a true whole foods recipe. I use dates as a sweetener to add nutrient density, minerals and fibre.
Dates, oats, tahini, and cacao are anti-inflammatory, brain, nervous systems and heart-healthy tonic foods making this hot chocolate a delicious food as medicine hug in a mug and a great afternoon pick-me-up or quick morning meal in a mug. You could make as an iced chocolate smoothie style.
High fibre foods are an important part of a healthy digestive system. Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are high in fibre.
Recipes have ingredients with anti-inflammatory nutrients and avoid common inflammatory foods like sugar, gluten, dairy and processed food. A whole food diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods can help relieve symptoms of inflammation within the body. Inflammation is at the root of most disease = dis-ease.
Heart Healthy recipes have lots of whole grains, fruits & vegetables. A diet rich in plant foods, low in refined fatty foods can help lower cholesterol.
Brain Healthy recipes have ingredients that support healthy brain and tissue repair, growth and development, cognitive function and memory
