The Simple Life Low Carb Chocolate Recipe

Here is my healthy low carb chocolate recipe, it is far more nutritious and has very little sugar, when compared to store bought chocolate. Of course it is Primal and Paleo approved, as it contains no dairy products and is grain/gluten free.

  • Pre-heat a pan on very low heat, the smaller the pan the easier it is to control and make. I usually use an eight inch frying pan.Primal Power Method Low Carb Chocolate
  • Melt equal amounts of coconut oil and cacao butter (do not boil, the slower the melting the better) in the pan. Cacao butter can be found in health food stores and is a yellowish solid looking fat. Cacao butter and powder is the less refined version of cocoa products.
  • Once the above is completely melted turn off heat and mix in real cacao powder. Now it will take a couple of batches for you to get the right flavor you like, there is no magic formula, but it should look dark and somewhat creamy. (Special note: melted homemade real chocolate is runnier than store-bought chocolate.)
  • (Optional) mix in some coconut milk or almond milk (3 to 4 tablespoons), this will give it more of a milk chocolate flavor.
  • Mix in a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • (Optional) a teaspoon of cinnamon – I do recommend this as it gives it a little more sweetness.

The Primal Power Method has some tried and true advice when it comes to celebrities and using their hyped-up weight-loss products. Don’t! …Well, unless you really enjoy making them richer and yourself poorer. Yes, this includes all those supposed experts like Dr. Oz, Oprah and Jillian Michaels. It doesn’t matter what letters are after their name. The fact is – if they make their money on TV, don’t get weight-loss advice from them. If they were truly experts in health and wellness, guess what? They would be working in the health and wellness industry and not on TV land.

Turmeric: The Supplement Everyone Should be Taking

Is turmeric Primal? You bet! And most of you know by now I’m a big fan of this ancient spice. Matter of fact I have been taking this herb in supplemental form and using as a cooking spice everyday for a couple years with amazing results.

Even though we know them as spices mainly used in curry, curcumin and turmeric have caused a buzz in the U.S. as a powerful natural herbal supplement. turmericTurmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant; it has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh. When discussing curcumin, you may also hear it described as turmeric. Often the two are used interchangeably, but there is a difference: turmeric is the yellow powder to flavor foods, and curcumin is the chemical contained in turmeric.

The History of Curcumin and Turmeric

For thousands of years, Asian, Indian and Indonesian cultures used curcumin and turmeric as herbal medicines and remedies. In various Asian folk medicine traditions, turmeric was used to treat conditions such as diarrhea, fever, bronchitis, colds, parasitic worms, leprosy, and bladder and kidney inflammation. Herbalists have applied turmeric salve to bruises, leech bites, festering eye infections, mouth inflammations, skin conditions, and infected wounds. Some people inhale smoke from burning turmeric to relieve chronic coughs. Some herbalists consider turmeric mixed with hot water and sugar to be a remedy for colds.
