I wanna be completely weightless
I wanna touch the edge of greatness
Don’t wanna be completely faithless

Labrinth – Beneath Your Beautiful (feat. Emeli Sandé)

You’ve carried on so long
You couldn’t stop if you tried it
You’ve built your wall so high
That no one could climb it
But I’m gonna try

Some days I wish I could just walk away from it all. To be able to leave it all behind and escape.

Chocolate that’s good for you! - The Raw Chocolate Company

I love raw food, and I think raw chocolate is something perfect.


raw + chocolate = perfection!


It is raw, vegan and organic!


The Raw Chocolate Company sent me 6 chocolates for review. :)


You probably know that chocolate can be full of amazing anti-oxidants, nutrients and minerals. Bad production methods destroy most of these, The Raw Chocolate company makes their chocolate on low temperature this preserves as many of nutrients as possible, plus they add some really supreme ingredients!


What goes into chocolate;

" Raw cacao

Un-roasted and minimally processed, our cacao contains more than 300 nutritional compounds, and is high in anti-oxidants, essential minerals and feel-good neurotransmitters like serotonin.

Cold pressed virgin cacao butter

With its silky smooth texture and rich luxurious chocolatey scent, cacao butter won’t raise your cholesterol levels like other fats, is less likely to cause weight gain compared to refined or hydrogenated oils, and also provides essential fatty acids.
   
Xylitol


Derived, a little surprisingly, from the birch tree, wholly natural Xylitol offers all the sweetness of common sugar with 40% fewer calories. With a low GI, Xylitol is considered suitable for diabetics and hypoglycaemics and has also been given a thumbs up by dentists for its kindness to teeth. ‘The Darker Side of Delicious’ range is sweetened with Xylitol.

Vanilla pods

Added to our chocolate for their sensuous aroma. “

Organic Vanoffe - for me it is like heaven sent, everything I need from chocolate; it is tasty, creamy and sweet. I think that is due to the Lucuma! Yummy . Really buy this chocolate, Vanoffe is ”your new best friend”. 

Organic fairtrade raw chocolate pitch dark - It is bitter and dark, if you love dark chocolate = this is your new favorite! Be sure to buy it!!


Vanoffe dark - in my top 3 :) I have to say it is a little bit bitter than vanoffe but I love it.

Raw chocolate + goji berries & orange - Great, you can feel real orange with little bit of goji berries. For me it’s fresh and really citrusy.


Dark raw chocolate with mint & xylitol - yum yum yum I love mint and this is like healthy ‘after eight’ chocolate. I really know a lot about mint and this is something perfect yummy dark chocolate + mint delicious!!

Dark raw chocolate with orange & xylitol - I don’t know why but I love orange + goji more. It is tasty, bitter and really dark chocolate.



My Top 3:

1.Vanoffe

2.Raw chocolate + goji berries & orange

3.Vanoffe dark


You can get other amazing products from them like raw chocolate mini, organic cacao nibs, organic acai powder, goji berries, organic cacao powder, chia seeds, raw lucuma powder, organic hemp protein powder, organic coconut palm sugar, bee pollen and much much more!
