Benefits of Dark Chocolate



Health Benefits

  • Lowers Blood Pressure.
  • Makes you happy.
  • Helps in weight loss.
  • Keeps you smart.
  • Reduces stress.
  • Powerful source of antioxidants.
  • Lowers cholesterol.
  • Helps prevent diabetes.

If there is one thing I struggle with is staying away from SWEETS. They are my bread and butter! From ice cream, to cake, to cookies, to pastries. I get cravings just by thinking about it. Since this is obviously something I wanted to change in my diet. I decided to switch all my sweet cravings to just ONE healthy alternative. →DARK CHOCOLATE

Every time I crave something sweet I reach for my dark chocolate stash and start munching. I still haven’t gotten used to the bitter taste & it did take me a while to learn how to replace sweets with dark chocolate, but it definitely takes away those sweet cravings. Not only does Dark Chocolate help with cravings; it also has A LOT of health benefits. In order to benefit from dark chocolate though; dark chocolate needs to be 65%-85% cocoa. Is anyone a fan of dark chocolate? I know I’m still trying to get used to it.

10 Fat burning foods !

I know everyone, like me, can have a pretty hard time figuring out what to eat and what not to eat when starting a healthy lifestyle. Below I typed 10 foods you can eat that are part of a healthy diet and also help you stay in shape! YAY! When I started on my healthy lifestyle, fitfam journey, I did SOOO much research on foods, recipes, workouts, right foods, what not to eat, and all that good stuff. There was so much information, I just got overwhelmed by it all. There is nothing I want more than to help you guys in making the right choices when it comes to living the healthy lifestyle you want. That being said, everyone is different and not everyone can eat the same foods as everyone else and expect the same results. Maybe you can’t even eat the foods because you have a sensitivity or are allergic to it. Whatever the case may be, always listen to your body and/or speak to your doctor to find a good meal plan that works for you.

10 Fat Burning Foods

  1. Green Tea
  2. Berries
  3. Almonds
  4. Oatmeal
  5. Egg Whites
  6. Green Veggies
  7. Whole Grains
  8. Peanut Butter
  9. Lentils
  10. WATER (it may not be a food but this is so unbelievably important)!

Everything Coconut 

When it comes to beauty care I only use coconut oil. I LOVE how it works on my skin.

After my work out I spray coconut water hydrating face mist. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It leaves my skin super radiant and so soft.

To remove my makeup at night I use actual Coconut oil. I always get it at marshalls. Its cheaper and it lasts me so long!

For a leave on mask while I sleep I use Coconut oil sleep mask.

Disregard my cat in the picture lol he LOVES coconut oil. Its weird, he always wants to lick my face when I put it on.

Coconut oil works wonders! Don’t you agree ?

Detox! You won’t regret it

You may or may not be familiar with cleanses or how the body detoxifies itself. If you are familiar with this subject, that’s great! All I want is for you guys to be aware of everything health. If you are not familiar, then I hope you enjoy learning and reading about your body and how to stay healthy.

Lets help our bodies stay on top of it’s game

Before talking about the complete body cleanse, know that the body actually detoxifies itself.

How does the body detoxify itself?

What is a detox? To clear the body of toxins.

What are toxins? Toxins cause harm to our bodies and they can be anywhere; in the water we drink, in the food we eat, and it can also be in the air we breathe. They can be: highly processed foods and artificial ingredients, pollution in our air and water, pesticides, fertilizers, hormones used in our foods and more. 

  • SKIN let out toxins by sweating.
  • LIVER detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs.
  • LUNGS helps the body get rid of CO2 gas when we breathe out.
  • LARGE INTESTINE transmits the useless waste material from the body.
  • KIDNEYS extract waste from blood and through urination.

Your body is always working on detoxifying itself. It’s our job to help our organs be at their full potential. This involves lifestyle changes, as well as committing to a detox plan for a while. (preferably organic)

4 Ways To Detox Your Body

1. Choose REAL FOOD

2. Drink ALOT of water

3. Exercise

4. Do a Complete Body Detox

These are not all the things you can do to help your body detox itself but its some.

The Complete Body Cleanse

Okay, so lately I’ve been feeling super weird in my stomach. I wanted to do a stomach cleanse but then I started thinking… I would so much rather do the whole deal! Your body goes through a lot without you even realizing it. Since I’ve never done a cleanse and I occasionally eat the “bad foods”, I wanted to give the whole body cleanse a try.

About this specific body cleanse

Lasts for 14 days

All capsules taken in morning and night with 8 ounces of water

Contains: 3 bottles

  1. Cleansing fiber blend.
  2. Non-stimulant laxative with herbal blend to utilize the natural water in your body to help flush toxins away.
  3. Milk Thistle Liver Cleanse to support liver function.

While doing this cleanse I have to drink a lot of water, eat a healthy diet and no intense exercise. (Only yoga)

I can’t wait to try this out and see how I feel! Has anyone ever done a total body cleanse ? I would like to know your experience and how it helped you. !

FOOD and WINE Festival at EPCOT 

So, the bubs and I were in desperate need of a vacation. Since I’ve always wanted to try out the food & wine festival at Orlando, Fl Epcot, we decided hell yeah! Trying food all day doesn’t sound to shabby. 


When we got there, we decided to try out some rides before actually eating at the festival. Soo, we decided to try Mission to space … what a bad idea. I guess the bubs and I really CANNOT handle motion stimulators or have any career in being astronauts in the near future. When you get to the ride you have the option to pick the not so intense one and the intense one. The bubs was all like INTENSE, INTENSE… I could choke him. Well when we got of we had to walk around and sit in restruants for like 40 minutes before finally feeling like ourselves again. I stopped at nearly 5 trash cans ready to puke. After all of this we finally got to the festival ! 



SO MUCH FOOD !! Our favorite was the first picture with the Mexican tácito and the margarita.

Animal Kingdom

 

Everything was so much fun! The Bubs really does make any place we go to an adventure.
