Cleaning our bodies from inside is the most important treat we can do to ourselves. Detoxing allows us to clean our bodies. By doing so, we allow our gut to be clean and fully functioning. I love the book of Dr. Junger which is the detox I feel is the most effective and provide long term results. Basically you eat one lunch made of solid food (not broken down) while in the evening and morning you get 2 liquid meals (pre-digested). You need to leave 12 hours between the last evening meal and the first one in the morning.
The change of season and especially spring is the occasion to clean everything around us so why not including ourselves...?
Leading dark chocolates brands are so popular…but I would never give them to my loved ones.
Why? Because they’re not real chocolate. They’re merely candy.
The two are very different.
CANDY offers no health benefits.
For instance, take a fancy worldwide known Dark Chocolate Truffle.
The ingredient label shows this product contains:
- Bittersweet Chocolate (Unsweetened Chocolate (processed with Alkali), Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Butteroil, Soy Lecithin (Emulsifier), Natural Flavor, Milk)
- Heavy Cream
- Corn Syrup
- Invert Sugar
- Unsweetened Chocolate
- Soy Lecithin (Emulsifier)
As a parent, one of my hardest challenges is what snacks am I going to give my kids today? How creative can I be and how do I get them to buy into healthy eating?
So I thought I’d consult the great Google. This is what I got: juice, cereals, popcorn, crackers, fruit, bagels, cream cheese, muffin, banana sandwich, processed meat. And right there and then Google lost me. Seriously!? That’s what you got???
But the rest of Google’s suggestions, which are generally filled with refined flour, hydrogenated corn syrup, hormone & antibiotic filled meat & cheese, and popcorn are now healthy options? Mon Dieu!
I am very excited to be back in Los Angeles after 7 weeks away! No worries, HNINA was churning out healthy gourmet goodies the entire time thanks to our amazing crew (Katya and Fernanda we love you!!!!)
So upon our return, guess what Julia, Carmel and I did? We went right into our fridge and devoured some of Hnina Gourmet’s Nuts About Chocolate sprouted spreads…yum yum yu
At that moment we realized how lucky we were to be able to have this Nutella replacement ”Hninatella” which is so delicious and at the same time nourishing.
We like to say “It’s to die for, not to die from.”
Ours is possibly THE World’s Best Sprouted Plant Based Spread…maybe probably and perhaps even definitely
Made of only sprouted lightly roasted unpasteurized and non-radiated nuts, raw cacao mass, vanilla bean and dates. C’est tout! (That’s it!) And of course all of our ingredients are certified organic.
Today I sprouted a mix of raw Flax seeds, raw sesame seeds, raw pumpkin seeds and raw sunflower seeds.
We have been working on a new product based on this mix which is also the mix we are using to make our raw chocolate sprouted seeds truffle.
Let me tell you that the amount of protein that you get it just amazing. I am not even talking about the nutrients, minerals, vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants they contain once they have been activated or sprouted if you prefer.
I am not neither one nor the other but I just listen to how my body feels when I eat them. And it feels damn good. No bloating, unfriendly gas and my energy is over the roof.
My breakfast this morning was this superfood raw cracker with a beautiful homemade raw coconut butter and our soon to be raw chocolate sprouted spread which so divine yet so nourishing.
Why would you tell me?
Simply because it is loaded with so much protein, calcium, iron, high in energy, minerals (manganese, copper, phosphorus, potassium and zinc), omega-3, folic acid, niacin, B1, B6, B2 vitamins, lignans (fiber) which acts as antioxidant.
Each seeds is a superfoods treasure. Please let me guide you:

4. Pumpkin seeds
are another alkaline forming super wholesome food. They contain manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, iron and tons of protein.
They are really a healing food. Please see below for futher information about it:
Now if you soak or activate your seeds, all the nutrients they contain can be absorbed by your body. You can please refer to my blog to understand the mechanisms for sprouting.
You just need to think about textures, nutrition, taste and freedom. So instead of focusing on protein powders and processed superfoods that have been pre-made for your convenience, why not focusing on wholesome organic functionnal superfood for your health.
If Nature gave it to us, that means that we should appreciate it.
That’s why Hnina’s sprouted seeds truffles may be the best seeds truffle in the world. Amazing for pregnant woman and for any one looking for a gourmet treat that will be nourishing concomitantly.
