RAW CHOC AVO TART AND AN ODE TO CHOCOLATE

Whenever I share something on chocolate, even raw, I give myself a pat on the back. Weird I know. It’s not a kudos for another mouth watering (#foodporn) chocolate dish, more so, chocolate was the main reason I started, and the reason I moved into nutrition sphere. Here me a little more…

You see, as a teenager I gave it up to go on a health kick and didn’t revisit it until about 15 years later, which was a small but triumphant step away an eating disorder that had riddled me for all of my teenage years and most of my twenties. I’ve never spoken much about it, there’s lots I have to say, and in time I will. I always find it valuable to hear other people’s stories and know how they moved forward, and I will do that for you.

So now when I post on something with cacao and see that beautiful, and actually nutritious little sweet treat of chocolate there, I feel very proud of how far I’ve come. It doesn’t sound like much, but as I always say with my clients and beyond, it’s the small steps you take that impact your health long term.

A Raw Chocolate Tart from me to you, with a serve of booch on the side just for good measure.
