FAQs

CAN YOU STORE LEFTOVER HOT CHOCOLATE? 

Absolutely! Just let it cool first to room temperature, and store in an airtight container for up to 2-3 days in the fridge. To reheat, just stir and warm in the microwave. 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COCOA POWDER AND CACAO POWDER? 

Cacao powder is considered “raw” because the beans are fermented, and then processed at low temperatures and then milled into a powder. It’s got a much more bitter flavour than cocoa powder, but it does have a higher amount of minerals and nutrients due to it being less processed.

Cocoa powder is created when the beans are fermented and then processed at a much higher temperature / roasted. This gives the cocoa powder a milder, sweeter flavour (and less acidic in taste). The tradeoff is that it may have less of the natural nutrients of the cacao bean due to the additional heating. But it’s still much much healthier than using whole chocolate to make hot chocolate!

There are so many options for mix-ins for hot chocolate and this recipe is no exception! You could go the traditional route and add homemade whipped cream, dark chocolate chips, or mini marshmallows as toppings. Other fun mix-ins include:

• 2-3 drops of peppermint oil and a pinch of salt (if you go this route, omit the other spices from the recipe except for the vanilla)

Healthy Breakfast Ideas for Busy Mornings under 100 calories & 200 calories

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

What Is a Balanced Breakfast?

A balanced breakfast should focus on protein and fiber.

Perhaps the most appealing benefit of breakfast is that it jumpstarts your metabolism and may help you burn more calories throughout the day.

Additionally, studies have found that people who skip breakfast tend to have a higher body mass index (BMI).

Starting your day with breakfast can help with memory and attention

In the morning, our blood sugar is low, and we need to replenish it to help power our brain and muscles. Breakfast is especially important for metabolic needs. Research suggests that people who eat breakfast are better learners and have better concentration, more problem-solving skills and better hand-eye coordination.

You should never miss breakfast or you will end up eating more later.

Proven Health Benefits of Avocado + An Easy Guacamole Recipe

While most fruit consists primarily of carbohydrate, avocado is high in healthy fats.

The avocado is often referred to as a superfood, which is not surprising given its health properties. Many types of avocado vary in shape and colour — from pear-shaped to round and green to black. They can also weigh anywhere from 8 ounces (220 grams) to 3 pounds (1.4 kg).

Do you know?

The most popular variety is the Hass avocado.

It’s often called alligator pear, which is very descriptive, as it tends to be pear-shaped and has green, bumpy skin like an alligator.

Avocado

1. Avocado Is Incredibly Nutritious

Avocados are very nutritious and contain a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals. Here are some of the most abundant nutrients, in a single serving:

• Folate

• Magnesium

• Potassium

• Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)

• Niacin (Vitamin B3)

• Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)

• Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6)

• Vitamin C

• Vitamin E

• Vitamin K

• It also contains small amounts of manganese, copper, iron, zinc, phosphorous and vitamins A and B1 (thiamine).

2. Potassium is an important mineral that most people don’t get enough of. Avocados are very high in potassium, which should support healthy blood pressure levels.

3. Avocados and avocado oil are high in monounsaturated oleic acid, a heart-healthy fatty acid that is believed to be one of the main reasons for the health benefits of olive oil.

4. Avocados are high in antioxidants, including lutein and zeaxanthin. These nutrients are very important for eye health and lower your risk of macular degeneration and cataracts.

5. Avocados ensure better consumption of nutrients from plant source foods. There are several nutrients which are fat-soluble. This means that they need to combine with fats for them to be utilized by the body. Vitamin A, D, E and K are some plant nutrients that are better absorbed with avocado. 

Avocados have a creamy, rich, fatty texture and blend well with other ingredients. Therefore, it’s easy to add this fruit to your diet.

Think avocado, and the first thing that comes to our minds is the Mexican dip guacamole.

Guacamole toast

The delicious dip made of mashed avocado and herbs is one of the healthier swaps to the greasy barbeque dips.

• Guacamole (pronounced guah-ka-moh-lee) is a basic salad that you can make with avocados – it’s extremely healthy and doesn’t require a lot of effort. Most of the health benefits of guacamole stem from the avocados, but the other ingredients add to the nutritional quotient as well.

• This dip is special because it will not only enhance the flavour of your next meal but will also do wonders for your overall health.

• Made with ripe avocados, aromatic garlic and fresh tomatoes, onions, coriander and lime juice, guacamole adds texture and flavour to your meals and snacks.

• Guacamole serves as a source of several essential nutrients that benefit your health. However, it also packs a hefty caloric punch — a cup of guacamole can contain almost 400 calories.

• Eat the food in moderation as part of a balanced diet.

Here is a simple recipe by Myfoodshala :

Ingredients

  • 3 Avocado (Riped)

  • 1 Onion (medium) – Finely chopped
