We know that chocolate is everyone’s favorite pick-me-up, but that’s not the only mood enhanc- ing gem provided by the cacao plant. The Mayans called cacao nibs the “Food of the Gods” for their exceptional flavor and nutritional profile. This crunchy, chocolatey treat is versatile, easy to use, and fiber-rich. And the riches don’t stop there! Cacao nibs are packed with antioxidants and vital minerals including magnesium and iron. Everything about this superfood makes it sound like a treasure! No wonder those Mayans were such big fans!
The unique and powerful chemical alkaloids including anandamine, theobromine and phenylethylamine found in cacao nibs boost your mood and make you feel like you’re in looooove (we told you it was a pick-me-up!).
So if you want to wash away those blues, relieve some of that stress, and send some good vibes out into the world, we suggest you start substituting those chocolate chips in your favorite cookies for some of these precious nibs! Or, if you’re feeling especially bold, try a handful, straight up!
