Eat Well: Superfood Hot Chocolate with New Chapter Fermented Black Seed Powder

This post is written in partnership with New Chapter, however all opinions are my own. I only work with and recommend companies whose products I love, and I’m so excited to share these with you!

This is was the first year that Tim and I spent the holidays at home together and I loved sharing some of my family’s traditions, and creating some of our own together. Whilst some traditions should stay just for the holidays, I’m bringing some of my favourites into the new year with me, namely a delicious bedtime hot chocolate!

Christmas Eve as a child for me always held the following - the hanging of my stocking, leaving a mince pie for Father Christmas and a carrot for Rudolph, and reading ‘The Night Before Christmas’ by Clement C. Moore, whilst drinking a delicious hot chocolate.

This winter, I’ve taken the classic hot chocolate recipe and given it a superfood twist, whilst still keeping it creamy, comforting, and definitely delicious.

Cacao powder is packed full of antioxidants and polyphenols, and is rich in calming magnesium and mood-boosting theobromine, and can even raise levels of our feel-good neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. No wonder we feel great after chocolate in any form!

Coconut butter gives this recipe a wonderful richness whilst boosting good fats, honey gives a touch of nutrient-dense, gut-soothing sweetness, and vanilla and cinnamon boost flavour whilst helping to stabilize blood sugar levels and balance hunger hormones.

I’ve added New Chapter’s Fermented Black Seed Booster Powder as its blend of fermented herbs is wonderful for mitigating any holiday induced stress, and the fermentation process ensures all of those wonderful phytonutrients are easy for my body to digest and absorb*. Its slightly spicy and minty flavour also lends itself perfectly to this recipe!

Eat Clean: Red Cabbage Cups with Seasonal Waldorf Salad

This post is written in partnership with Primal Kitchen Foods, however all opinions are my own. I only work with and recommend companies whose products I love, and I’m so excited to share these with you!

I’m sure I’m not the only one that actually prefers Thanksgiving leftovers to the main event!

I always try to eat a little lighter the days after Thanksgiving, and these Red Cabbage Cups with Seasonal Waldorf Salad and Primal Kitchen Foods Chipotle Lime Mayo are perfect for an easy to make, low carb, veggie packed lunch dish.

I’ve combined chopped turkey with apples, celery, dill and walnuts for a seasonal twist on this classic salad, and I love how the Primal Kitchen Foods Chipotle Lime Mayo brightens up this dish and gives it a spicy, tangy kick. Tim and I have been fans of Primal Kitchen Foods for years, and especially love their huge range of salad dressings (I love the Green Goddess and Tim loves the Sesame Ginger, and they even have a Vegan Ranch) and mayos (the Chipotle Lime is incredible), as they add variety and flavor to our protein and veggie based meals and help keep us consistent with our clean eating habits.

I avoid most store bought mayos as they usually contain inflammatory oils such as canola or soybean, and surprisingly most have added sugar too. Primal Kitchen Foods uses avocado oil which is one of my favourite plant based oils, it is high in oleic acid, monounsaturated fats and vitamins A, D and E. Even better, they only use organic, cage free eggs, and are non GMO Project Verified.

Primal Kitchen Foods have just launched in Wegmans, and to celebrate I’m giving away an incredible gift box of their products worth $200, and a $100 gift card to Wegmans!
