Nutrition Nugget

Cacao-nt Me In

What’s better than chocolate? Well how about “raw” chocolate, lightly roasted? The cacao bean, like other beans, comes packed with phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fiber, but no other bean tastes like… well, chocolate! And without the added sugar, nor any disease-promoting dairy! On top of all the nutritional benefits, cacao brings a light amount of caffeine too, giving an extra pep to your day without a crash. Toss some in your smoothie, or try one of the three LeafSide smoothies that deliver it (or enjoy our Cacao Raspberry sweet bowl), accompanied with a score of nutrient packed whole plant foods.
