I try and live as healthy a lifestyle as possible and that includes high quality cocoa and dark chocolate in my mostly balanced diet.
For those who don’t know (where’ve you been?) cocoa is a superfood bursting with endorphin-releasing qualities (the happy-makers), tonnes of antioxidants, calcium, magnesium and iron, meaning great quality chocolate is oh-so good for you.
One of my all time favourite chocolatiers Hotel Chocolat like me, also believe that everyone should be able to include top-quality chocolate at the heart of their healthy lifestyle too- and what’s more, cocoa-rich chocolate is perfect for optimising sports performance too.
Good news at this time of year in particular, with new starts and greater motivation to get fit after the indulgence of Christmas!
Here at Honest Mum, one lucky reader will be getting their hands on this gorgeous Sports Performance gift box which includes Supermilk Puddles, a Dark Fruit & Nut Slab, a Supermilk Hazelnut Slab, Classic Drinking Chocolate,Cocoa & Peppermint Infusions, and three 35g Rabot 1745 bars: Dominican Republic 100% Dark, Ecuador 70% Milk, and Saint Lucia 100% Dark.
