Some days just call for a little indulgence – Fridays for me is often that day! After a long week of traveling in and out to work, busy days and herbal formulations it’s nice to spoil my self with a little healthy indulgence.
The key to indulgence is picking foods that will make you happy but also nourish you inside and out! Cacao is one that hits all the right spots. Cacao is naturally rich in Tryptophan which is a precursor for Serotonin the Feel Good hormone, responsible for balancing our moods – so really there’s no reason NOT to make this! Food as Medicine at its finest!
This recipe does feature cold drip coffee; coffee is best avoided during pregnancy, breastfeeding, conception and with individuals adrenal fatigue.
