Put down the Packet! Quick Healthy Hot Chocolate is Here!

Just like oatmeal, I’m going to ask you to put down the store-bought hot chocolate packet (or box mix) full of high fructose corn syrup, “milk solids,” and who knows what else.
Here’s a healthier hot chocolate choice.

Unbelievable Brownies! Half Healthy, All Insanely Good!

The truth is, making a cake from scratch isn’t a big deal and doesn’t even take much longer than a cake mix. And brownies? Seriously exactly the same as a mix. The other advantage of making a cake or brownies from scratch, particularly brownies (because they’re always chocolate!), is that you can use cacao powder. That’s like cocoa powder before all the antioxidants are stripped from it. Cacao powder can actually have more antioxidants than blueberries! You know that whole, “But chocolate is good for you…” line we’ve been hearing for a few years. It actually can be true. But no, not a milk chocolate bar. Sorry!
