I’m not sure about you, but I can definitely say that during my past two and half years of university, ’ve struggled with completing the endless assigned readings each week, getting 8 hours of beauty sleep every night, trying to eat healthy without getting a milkshake from the Village Cafe, maintaining a social life and finding time to exercise. With so many things to juggle on our plates, I do admit that it can be difficult to stay healthy and feel energised by the end of semester. When I’m tired, run-down and not feeling emerged, I often crave all different types of food. Chocolate definitely my biggest enemy. However, in saying that, minus the sugar, studies have found that chocolate can be healthy. It contains cacao which is a super food high in magnesium and other minerals. It can boost energy, maintain mood levels and helps to maintain heart health. During the cold, winter night, I often crave a nice, creamy hot chocolate and when trying to eat healthy and satisfy my sugar cravings (which I have all the time), I’ve tried to substitute the ‘bad’ ingredients for wholesome ones. Check our my healthy vegan cacao hot chocolate recipe below!
