Raw Chocolate Bark w/ Pistachios & Edible Flowers

 

In case you haven’t noticed, I LOVE chocolate, especially the chocolate barks and truffles I make myself.

 

It has now been proven that the flavonoids contained in chocolate have powerful antioxidant properties and thus, heaps of health benefits such as anti-ageing properties.

 

Some might say that chocolate put pressure on the adrenals, which I think is true. But I am eating some every day and personally, I still haven’t had any issues on this side.

 

I think that if you have a balanced lifestyle and diet, without too much stress and pressure, you can truly enjoy chocolate every single day without worrying about your adrenals.

 

This recipe is one of my favorite at the moment because it’s simple, you don’t need any specific equipment, it’s quick and it’s absolutely delightful…
