Eating For Health with How You Glow: Week 3

The third and final recipe in our health series with How You Glow. 

Jessie and Tara of wellness and beauty blog, How You Glow, show us the healthy way to do chocolate. This recipe focuses on superfood and super herb infusions. We can truly make food medicine when we incorporate these incredible, potent, and powerful ingredients into them seamlessly.

Maca chocolate bark with dried cherries, dried golden berries, and dried rose petals.

Maca is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids. Maca is widely used to promote sexual function in both men and women.

This maca chocolate bark is super easy to make and makes for an amazing gift, too! It’s beautiful because of the sour dried fruits and rose petals, and the addition of salt takes it to the next level. If you are a salty and sweet person, this is the recipe for you. The chocolate will load you up with tons of great energy and nutrients.

3 cups high quality semisweet or dark chocolate chips
2 tablespoons coconut oil
4 teaspoons maca
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 dried rose petals
1/4 cup dried mulberries
pinch of sea salt

  1. Oby – You’d just need to ensure the chocolate you’re purchasing is vegan. If you Google ‘vegan dark chocolate’ you’ll find a few helpful resources but two options that are easy to find are Green & Black’s organic dark chocolate bar and Whole Food’s Market organic dark chocolate bar.

  2. This looks absolutely delicious. So many of the recipes featured on this blog make me want to cook and bake. I don’t know why, but I’ve never liked to cook or bake, because my mom is an avid foodie, so I guess that trait wasn’t passed down to me. I’ve always said that she’s the (unbelievable) cook and that I’m the (excellent) eater of her food. I’m a sucker for creativity, so it blows my mind that I don’t find making food one of the most fun things out there. Not everything you do creative you get to eat!

  3. I LOVE this recipe!! What other herbs/flower buds could we use? I’d love to use chamomile buds or dandelion as well. Thanks for sharing!
