Show your body some love this Valentine’s Day! Truffles may be the age-old cliché way to someone’s heart, but the 2017 you isn’t interested in drowning in chocolate refined sugar-bombs (which, FYI, contain up to 20 grams of sugar in just a few, puny pieces). Instead, get up and get glowing with my Raw Cacao Bliss Balls. They’re rich in fiber, packed with anti-inflammatory properties, and have no added sugar.

Did I mention they’re delicious? Warning: they’re so good, you probably won’t be sharing.
