Now, this delicious version of hot chocolate isn’t loaded with sugar. Ever notice the insane cravings that start to follow once you consume too much sugar?
You go sugar free or low carb for a while and then – BAM – one bite of a sweet cake or cookie or piece of bread and your cravings come back full force?
Carbs have been given a bad rap and many women are scared to eat them 🙈
I fell into this trap for far too long and it tanked my thyroid and adrenals👎
When it comes to carbs, quality matters. If you’re loading up on refined flours (which also contain toxic fortified nutrients), refined sugar, fast food, that “healthy” salad dressing which is full of vegetable oils and trans fats – THIS is the real problem.
We need carbs! Fruits and root vegetables are where it’s at. But processed sugar is still something I steer away from.
In this recipe, the highlight is on healthy fat.
Fat helps to balance my blood sugar, it keeps my brain fuelled and it provides me with lots of energy. Plus, fat is incredibly important for hormonal health.
You need fats because they regulate the production of sex hormones, which can often be the reason why some teenage girls and women in general can experience amenorrhea (no period).
This hot chocolate has lots of hormone-balancing, brain fuelling fats.
And in case you didn’t know, higher intake of fat (the good kind) can also help you combat cravings.
Amazing right? Not to mention this particular elixir is loaded with collagen, which not only gives it a hit of protein but is excellent for your hair, skin and nail growth PLUS it’s amazing for your gut health.
My go-to collagen is by CanPrev — their quality is outstanding.
So, enjoy this hot chocolate guilt free and know that as you’re sipping away, you’re supporting your hormones and nourishing your need for chocolate.
