Flips to Love: The protein and fiber content in Chocolate Bliss kills cravings. The cacao boosts mood. The Paleo Power provides a kick of collagen your joints, gut, and skin will love.
Need a crunch? Add some nutty toppings like cacao nibs to take that chocolate overdose to a new level.
Like it thick? Just add small amounts of almond milk at a time and stir a couple times during the process to keep it thick but mixed.
Make It More Blissful
You can make Chocolate Bliss your meal – add another half serving of protein or a serving of nut butter (or the nuts!) or split it with someone or save half for later and use it as a side to a plate of steamed or roasted veggies and eggs or other protein source (make sure you’ve tested and know you tolerate).
Smoothies like chocolate bliss can be a game-changer. Many of my group participants are shocked to find out a “liquid breakfast” (not to be confused with liquid lunch!) is satisfying. The trick is fiber and protein combined. Fiber, whether weight loss is your goal, or you’ve got blood sugar issues that take you on a roller coaster ride, or you want to rid yourself of cellulite or get more regular, is so important.
Most of us don’t get more than 15 grams a day. For weight loss, energy, and better elimination 35 -50 grams is a healthier goal. You find your personal best with a slow increase along with an increase in water. Small additions to your daily fiber intake and to meals with Fiber Boost can help. It’s not harsh like over-the-counter products and it doesn’t make you dependent on it either. It’s like real food- from 5 different sources of food. It doesn’t turn to gel in a glass like my grandmother’s fiber did. Add it to your chocolate bliss smoothie, or any of the smoothies in my collection (get them all here).
