Righteously Raw Chocolate Review

In the last few weeks of my pregnancy, I have had major cravings for chocolate!!! But, I am not one to just stuff whatever I crave into my face if it is not going to fuel my body. I try to eat what I crave and love in small amounts and with healthier options.

That is why I have loved indulging in Earth Source Organic Righteously Raw Chocolate. The Righteously Raw Chocolate bars are made of raw, organic, healthful ingredients and without refined sugars or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). From the raw, unheated, unprocessed and unadulterated cacao (chocolate) to the varied and exotic fruits, berries, and other certified organic ingredients that fill them. Now, that is my kind of treat!!

Chocolate has been reported to be one fo the leading antioxidant-rich substances on the planet, which is great news for me and all of you other chocolate lovers! It provides an abundant source of minerals like iron and magnesium and is one of the so-called "superfoods." But, not all chocolate is created equal. A Hershey's bar isn't going to give you the health benefits of a Righteously Raw bar.

Just one of the things that sets them apart is the fact that these chocolates are raw. What does that mean? Well, the nutritional and enzymatic structures that make "superfoods" so super are damaged when they are roasted or cooked, making it difficult or even impossible for our bodies to fully absorb the benefits at their full potential.

Righteously Raw Chocolates come in several different flavors including: Maca, Maqui, Caramel, Goji, and Acai. These are all really decadent fillings inside of the chocolate bar.

My favorite is the Goji Berry Chocolate Bar. It is made from dark, 90% raw cacao. Tucked inside are the goji berries, golden Hunza raisins, and Turkish figs. It is definitely a treat for the taste buds!! What else do I love about this bar? It contains all 8 essential amino acids, provides up to 21 trace minerals, and gives you immune-stimulating polysaccharides. There are just a few ingredients in this bar, and they are all organic and high quality ingredients. I love indulging in just a couple bites of this bar after my son goes to bed. Oh yum!!

The best part is that I have no guilt after eating this chocolate. I know it is fueling my body and not causing my blood sugar to spike or sending crazy signals to my brain. I think you will love this chocolate as much as I do!

You can read about even more benefits of the Righteously Raw chocolate and find a store near you that carries them right on their website. You can also visit their online retailers if there are no stores near you.

If you are looking to indulge in some amazingly healthy chocolate, you have to try Righteously Raw!!

  1. These sound delish - all flavors! I had been trying to make some of my own, but it is more of a production than I end up doing it as much as I would, so I still like to prowl for good bars - I'd love to try these!
