March 4, 2012 O-M-eGa these are good
When I got home for spring break, I noticed a few new interesting additions to the pantry: ground flax meal, coconut oil, and raw honey. While I wasn’t surprised (my mom is obsessed with healthy foods and health food “trends”), I was curious if I would be able to make something that was as healthy as it was delicious. Thankfully I stumbled upon these, the perfect start to my spring break detox. These raw chocolate drops not only taste good, but also they are good for you. Filled with omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, these chocolate drops satisfy your sweet tooth without sending you into a sugar coma. They only take a few minutes to prepare, so I suggest you make these ASAP!
