SUPERFOOD MAYAN CHOCOLATE BARK & MANITOBA HARVEST GIVEAWAY

Oh boy do I ever have a treat for you this week! Two treats actually! The first is this wonderfully nutritious Superfood Chocolate Bark which takes only 5-10 minutes to prepare, the second is my first GIVEAWAY! I promise you that once you start making your own chocolate you will never look back! Once you get your hands on a little cacao and cacao butter the possibilities are endless. My favourite thing to add to chocolate is Hemp Hearts (read below). What I love about making sweet treats from super nutritious foods is that you can indulge without the guilt! I personally don't believe in eating anything that is going to make you feel physically bad or make you feel bad about yourself or the food you consume. I also believe that dessert can be healthy and that everyone deserves a treat now and then! 

MY LOVE FOR HEMP HEARTS.....
One of my favourite superfood heros is the Hemp Heart! Hemp is a great source of omega fatty acids and is a easily digestible complete protein source. Where do I get my Hemp Hearts you ask? Manitoba Harvest is my favourite Hemp Heart supplier because their products are top quality and free from GMOs,additives and preservatives.

GIVEAWAY
