My name’s Mariana Sala, a busy mum of 2, owner of Quantum Vis cafe &    
 creator of Miss Keto meals. This is my little corner where I’d like to share 
 interesting information about a clean keto life, recipes, wellness, nutrition        
 & stress-management.
Cacao in all its glory!

This nutrient-dense keto food is SOOO accessible and versatile that you can easily incorporate it into your mornings, afternoons & even nights! 

So let’s dive into the WHY

1- MAGNESIUM KING

Low magnesium intake is linked to increased levels of inflammation. For middle-aged women, inflammation plays a key role in aging and contributes to chronic disease like multiple sclerosis, fatty liver, diabetes type 1 & 2, arthritis, to name a few. 

Cacao is packed with magnesium and helps ease cramps and promotes relaxation. Most importantly Cacao is a healing anti-inflammatory food. This keto snack is the ultimate natural antidepressant & supports a calmer nervous system.. When I feel a bit unsettled or anxious, my first go-to is to have a hot cup of this wonderful natural medicine! Believe me…it works every time! 

2- ANTIOXIDANT POWERHOUSE

Cacao is an antioxidant dairy-free powerhouse! 

The oldest woman to have lived was Jeanne Louise Calment of France. Jeanne died when she was 122 and her secret to her longevity was consuming wine, olive oil & lots and lots of dark bitter chocolate. Cacao beans have over 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries -another keto food that I absolutely love!

Perfect pick-me-up low-carb snack!

3- FIBER LOADED

Cacao is the perfect keto vegan snack not just because it’s gluten and sugar free but also because the fiber content in it helps with healthy digestion, fights constipation & provides relief from gastrointestinal discomfort! So if you do need a bit of help moving those bowels, the power of 10 grams of raw cacao will absolutely surprise you! Remember though that cacao is a diuretic, so lots of water please!

4-CALCIUM SUPPORT 

Much like other plant-based foods, cacao is very high in calcium (even higher than cow’s milk!) As we all know, getting an adequate amount of calcium is necessary for bone health. If you are not a dairy fan like me, cacao will give you the amount you need! 

5- IRON ELIXIR

Cacao is the highest vegan source of iron known to man, this compares to beef & lamb & that bowl full of spinach! 10-20 grams of raw cacao a day will most definitely give you a superb iron-boosting addition to your diet! Did you know that Mayan warriors were sent to battle with cacao to help them find courage & feel grounded?

So whether you are after relaxation, resolution, grounding, happiness (remember where chocolate comes from!), release or connection, this keto vegan snack has it all! Cacao serves YOU and what you are feeling, it adapts to your needs, and not the other way around! 

I know.…you can’t wait to get your hands on this keto whole food! I LOVE to melt mine in hot almond milk and add some spices to it like cinnamon & ashwagandha. Take my word for it there are so many ways you can make this superfood your best friend. Cacao paste, nibs, powder, buttons –  in your smoothies, in your coffee, cereal, yogurt or even add it to your baking. The variety and versatility of cacao is endless! And guess what? – kids love it too which makes it the perfect family snack!

Kids love this superfood! I use cacao in smoothies and as a topping too!
