Are you craving chocolate? Go ahead, give in! Cacao--raw chocolate--often referred to as "food of the gods" is high in antioxidants. It is also an excellent source of magnesium, iron, chromium, manganese, zinc, and copper. A good source of omega-6 fatty acids and rich in heart-healthy oleic acids, it will boost your mood, improve cognition and help lessen stress! Sounds too good to be true, but it isn't! As authorMatt Ruscignoexplains, this hot superfood has powerful benefits. Then Matt gives you what you really want--recipes for chocolate!Superfoods for Life, Cacaocontains 75 recipes for sweet and savory cacao recipes--from main dishes to desserts--including Huitlacoche-Chocolate Empanadas, Cocoa Buffalo Tempura Vegetables, Dolmathes with Currant-Chocolate Rice and Cacao Tzatziki.

"Superfoods for Life: Cacaois a gorgeous, fun, and fascinating book. It is chalk full of fresh perspectives on a food that is often thought of as little more than a candy bar. If you think chocolate is exclusively for dessert, be prepared to expand your bittersweet horizons. This book deserves a place on the shelf of every culinary enthusiast!" - Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina, co-authors ofBecoming Vegan: Comprehensive Edition(2014) and the award-winning, Becoming Vegan: Express Edition (2013)

"Dietitian Matt Ruscigno, a respected authority on diet and chronic disease, shows readers how chocolate--yes, chocolate!--can help prevent heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and dementia. There is no hype here--just the kind of solid research and science-based advice that Matt is known for. And wow--the recipes! There are cookies and cake, of course, but the show-stoppers are healthy, savory dishes like Velvety Chocolate Vegetable Tarts and Chocolate Marinara Sauce, and a chocolate-infused guacamole. This is healthy eating at its best: simple, incredibly delicious, and fun." - Virginia Messina, author ofVegan for LifeandVegan for Her

Editorial Reviews

"The coolest thing I like about their book is that it's not marketed as a "vegan cookbook." I LOVE SNEAKY VEGAN ACTIVISM! It's actually part of a series of superfoods cookbooks, some of which are not vegan. It's a great gift for omni friends or family members who are into chocolate and/or into superfoods and health!" - Vegansaurus.com
