A must have in your weekly food plan
I am a huge believer in eating a treat here and there to keep you sane and enjoying your food. We can be healthy and lean without living on chicken breast, egg whites and broccoli. My personal favourite is dark chocolate due to the high levels of antioxidants, potassium and magnesium. The magnesium, a muscle relaxant, is very helpful for PMS as is the serotonin which just makes you feel better.

As with all my top foods you need to look for organic products, and today I have the absolute pleasure of tasting the Loving Earth Raw Dark Chocolate bar. I am thinking I have a new favourite. This is what Loving Earth say about it on their website.

Raw chocolate is a simple yet revolutionary approach to chocolate. It contains no sugar or dairy and is suitable for vegans, it is essentially uncooked, unprocessed chocolate in its pure rich essential form sweetened with agave syrup (a natural low GI sweetener). It is a wickedly decadent healthy treat. The cacao is never heated above 45ÂșC from the time it is picked from the tree to its final state in the chocolate bar and this means that its wealth of phytonutrients are fully intact. Raw chocolate has been tested to have up to 4 times the antioxidants of conventionally processed chocolate
