Eat cacao to raise your metabolism!

Cacao, or pure chocolate, is one of the best foods you can eat to raise your metabolism. Cacao contains over 200 chemicals that act like fuel for the brain and body. It has been proven to beat depression, anemia, low energy, a lagging metabolism, and inability to focus. It has a similar effect as coffee, but no caffeine if you buy raw, unprocessed cacao powder. Plain dark cocoa powder is another great option if you can’t find the raw variety. I also like 100% chocolate baking bars, which are nothing but pure chocolate, or cacao nibs. Cacao contains iron, magnesium, zinc, folic acid, protein, fiber, and the saturated fats are not stored in the body as harmful fats, nor does cacao contain cholesterol. Just keep it to an ounce a day of the bars or nibs, and no more than ¼ cup of the powder a day. Otherwise, you might be a bit antsy from all the energy cacao gives!
