HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
The much touted nutritional benefits or raw cacao range from reducing cataracts to improving heart function to alleviating stress. The theobromine naturally found in raw cacao is a mild, non-addictive stimulant that some believe can treat depression. It may cause the brain to produce more of a neurotransmitter called anandamide which would account for the euphoric sensation some feel when indulging in chocolate. (Source: About)

Sprouts are considered to be a wonder food. They rank as the freshest and most nutritious of all vegetables available to the human diet. By a process of natural transmutation, sprouted food acquires vastly improved digestibility and nutritional qualities when compared to non-sprouted embryo from which it derives.  Sprouted foods have been part of the diet of many ancient races for thousands of years. Even to this day, the Chinese retain their fame for delicious mung bean sprouts. Sprouts provide all essential vitamins and minerals. They should form a vital component of our diet. Sprouting requires no constant care but only an occasional sprinkling of water.

  1. It’s day 5 and every 1 so far has bananas in it and I’m looking to avoid them (other than 1 or 2 max per week). Is it is as simple as just skipping the banana or is it best to substitute with something else? Thanks, Dave

      Hi, Dave, and WELCOME to Blender Babes! Any particular reason you’re avoiding bananas? They typically just add the necessary sweet- and creamy-ness to cut the greens, but you can definitely try the recipes without them and even try alternatives like honey, dates, stevia, or even mango. If you’re looking to avoid sugar, then just leave them out, but some of the recipes won’t be as yummy ;). Enjoy!

    1. Yes absolutely! May change the flavor a bit but bean sprouts are so good for you! We always say USE WHAT YOU GOT! 🙂 HAPPY BLENDING!
