Donnot stress about the pic above if you feel you are not there but try to keep it in mind. To make conscious decisions and choices are the best you can do right now. The only one we should “compete” with is ourselves. Never ever compare ourselves with anyone else. As soon as we are thinking and paying too much attention on someone else – we loose the contact with our own inner being. With that said, we donnot think it is bad at all to be inspired by other people. The difference is to allow other people to make us feel good, not bad. We acknowledge their way of living and doing – we let their positive energy radiate to us. Let them give from their abundance – and we soak it all up. Let them empower ourselves. Never ever see other people´s way of living as a comparison with our own lives. We are all on different missions and have all different purposes here. Embrace YOUR uniqueness – and share your good vibes with the rest!
We love to make our own raw chocolate. Not only is it super easy to make and tastes delish but you are also 100 % sure what your chocolate actually consists of. Your treats should only consist of good ingredients that should make you feel amazing. As always it is also best to keep it simple for your body with as few ingredients as possible for easy digestion. Very important by making your own chocolate you will probably in the end save money since it is much cheaper to bring your good choco vibes to the kitchen and create some yourself! We have so far not experimented that much with different raw chocolate creations but our dear friend Ragnhild is the raw chocolate queen so please check her blog for more recipes and inspirations.
But now let´s make some raw chocolate! For one little batch use the measurement we have written but keep them only as guidlines.
– 4 big tbl coconut oil
– 1/2 cup raw cacao*
– 1/2 cup carob*
– 1 tbl agave
– Raw cacao nibs (optional)
– Goji berries (topping)
* We like to mix raw cacao with carob but it works absolutely perfectly without carob or why not do it only with carob. Play with what you have at home and it will most likely turn out delicious!
Start with melting your coconut oil. When it is liquid add your raw cacao and carob together with agave. The more cacao you put the more delicious it will turn out! If you enjoy chocolate as much we do 😉 Go with the feeling while adding. Start with less and add more. Squeeze some agave in to get it a bit sweeter. The more you put the sweeter it will be. Pour it in to a form and sprinkle som raw cacao nibs over if you want to make it even more epic. Put the form in the fridge to chill for at least 20 min. If you are in a hurry you could put it in your freezer as well.
Take it and try to cut it as nicely you can. Before serving – sprinkle some goji berries on the top. Ready to be enjoyed!
Today´s powerful words come from Hermann Hesse and we found them extremely powerful and accurate:
“You know quite well, deep within you, that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation.. and that is called loving. Well, then, love your suffering, do not resist it, do not flee from it. It is your aversion that hurts, nothing else.”
With our hearts,
