The 6 Newest Super Foods to Add to Your Diet
Sure, they may be trendy, but there's a reason these foods are being hailed as "super"
"Cacao -- or raw chocolate -- is the highest antioxidant food on the planet, the number one source of magnesium, iron, chromium, and is also extremely high in anandamide, the 'bliss chemical,'" says Diaz. "Raw chocolate balances brain chemistry, builds strong bones, is a natural aphrodisiac, elevates your mood, and gives you way more energy than coffee ever will."
You'll also begin to start seeing the effects of this super food on the outside. "Raw cacao is unprocessed chocolate, which contains sulfur," says Marissa Vicario, CHHC, AADP. "This detoxifies the liver for smooth, clear skin and promotes strong hair and nails." Cacao is also dairy free and sugar free, so feel free to indulge in this healthy treat!
To get your chocolate fix, add raw cacao nibs to homemade trail mix, sprinkle them over Greek yogurt, or mix ground cacao beans into smoothies or a protein shake.
