Peace Out Chocolate Cake

Something about food—especially whole, rich, nourishing food—shared together bonds people. After seven days with a family, I have gained a new family that is forever, and my favorite way to end the week is with Peace Out Chocolate Cake!

Why I love Raw Chocolate

By weight, raw cacao has more antioxidants than red wine, green tea, acai, pomegranates, and blueberries combined.

Phenylethylamine (PEA) is a chemical produced in our body when we fall in love. It increases focus, alertness, and serves as a natural appetite suppressant. We can produce this chemical at will by eating raw cacao.
