Cacao Almonds

This healthy, antioxidant rich snack has become a go-to for many of my clients. Cacao (pronounced Cu-COW) comes from the same tree as cocoa, but skip out on the roasting and chemical processing that cocoa undergoes. Therefore it’s nutrient dense profile – especially those flavanols, are kept in tact allowing it to remain on top of the superfoods list. Raw cacao has a long list of potential benefits including blood pressure reduction, improved insulin resistance and protection from free radicals and pre-mature aging.
