Ladies and gents: Meet the Cacao Mint Chip Protein Smoothie. Just a couple quick fun facts about the mighty cacao bean to get you all excited n’ stuff: 1. It’s one of the most antioxidant rich foods on the planet. 2. In its raw form (= “nibs”), Cacao is unprocessed and does not contain any sugar. 3. It contains over 300 compounds including fiber, iron, magnesium, AND a “bliss” chemical that has a unique resemblance to TCH (don’t worry, you won’t get a buzz. But expect a good mood.)

This easy muffin recipe mixes up carrots and an apple pie inspired spice blend that will make your whole house smell AMAZING as they bake. You can also switch out the carrot and use sweet potato or zucchini for a twist. We've adapted this muffin recipe from the 21 Day Sugar Detox by Diane Sanfilippo.
This is a great meal on the go option for those needing a good power boost without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. This smoothie is inspired by the infamous Chunky Monkey flavor from Ben & Jerry's, but packs a nutrient punch with chia seeds and the superfood powers of cacao.
With chocolate in the title, we don't think you will need much pushing to try this amazing breakfast. But don't worry, it's good for you - we promise! Ginger provides an antioxidant boost, has anti-inflammatory effects, and can help relieve muscle and joint pain. All in this easy to create treat ... WITH CHOCOLATE. And don't get us started on all the awesomeness that those chia hold - omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium.

This breakfast comfort food that looks like work but is a fairly simple recipe to assemble- the only real work is in the chopping. This is a great one to make when you’ve got leftover rotisserie chicken from the night before, and if you chop double the vegetables, this can be remade in minutes the next morning. Peppers, potatoes, and onions are your Nutrient Superstars here, and chicken and eggs give you a serious boost of protein. Adapted slightly from www.fitnessmagazine.com
