1. Cacao Powder or Nibs
Cacao is by far my favorite of all natural stimulants. I mean, after all, it is chocolate! Cacao is rich in antioxidants, iron, magnesium, B vitamins, zinc, and Vitamin C. Iron, magnesium and zinc in cacao are used to fight off disease and enhance the mood. Plus, since cacao contains natural energizing stimulants, with over 200 just to be exact, it is in fact one of the most powerful natural foods on the planet. Add cacao powder or nibs to any smoothie, dessert, baked good, or drink. I love to use it in my homemade energy bars, smoothies, and it goes great in some almond milk heated with stevia to make a healthy hot chocolate. Cacao also stimulates the metabolism, promotes healthy cellular turnover, increases the immune system and curbs your appetite.
