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.

“Sun Potion Transformational Foods is dedicated to health, happiness and well-being through the use of medicinal plants, superfoods and tonic herbs.”

My 2 favorite SUN POTIONS are ASHWAGANDHA and HE SHOU WU. 

ASHWAGANDHA 

  • Tonifies the Immune System. 
  • Inspire vigor and strength.
  • Relieve mental, emotional, & physical stress.
  • Harmonize mind, body, & spirit.

It truly just helps you be at peace all day & helps stress slide right of you. 

 HE SHOU WU 

  • Tonify and Nourish hair, skin, nervous system, sexual center, spirit, & primary essence / life force. 

My hair & skin have changed so much after I started using this. I used to drink HAIRBURST, which was also amazing and helped my hair grow super fast and look healthy and shiny. But this product has helped me radiate everyday. From my nails to skin to hair.  

⇒ Go to their page on the link above and learn all about them / read their products & see which one works for you. They have potions for EVERYTHING. I bought all the ones I could from Thrivemarket. If you guys try this or have tried it already, comment below your experience. I would love to hear how you use it everyday & how it has changed your life. 

 

Hot Yoga Tips

Hey guys! I’m currently doing hot yoga and its the BEST thing E V E R! I have problems with my spine and I struggle to fall asleep at night because my back hurts so much. By the second class, I could already notice a great difference in my back. I could sleep soooo much better. Yoga is such a great experience, and the aftermath is amazing. It has many benefits, but I wont get into that right now. What I would like to share with you today is how to be prepared for class. I would like to add one thing that I had forgotten and its so important. BRING A WATER BOTTLE TO CLASS.

 

I loved this quote!

I hope you guys try yoga if you haven’t already. It’s truly amazing!

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 ?
