Nutritional consultant and filmmaker, Cathryn Fowler has created these potent Chocolate Mint Truffles, with the intention of promoting brain clarity and longevity. Using Raw Cacao and adaptogens like Mucuna Pruriens (which contains 15% L-dopa, a direct precursor to dopamine!) she invites us to awaken from auto-pilot mode and to activate our mind and body in order to grow. Learn how to re-create these delicious treats in her sweet step-by-step video... 

I’m all about encouraging and educating others to enjoy nourishing foods that help fuel and heal their bodies, but it’s not all about the body - there’s the whole mind element. Our thoughts. Our beliefs. And these influence our quality of life. Profoundly. So I like to create recipes to activate both the body and the mind. And I like them to be delicious.

For this particular recipe, I wanted to include some adaptogens that would help engage the mind. Why? Because an engaged mind more easily enables us to be an outside observer of our thoughts. And from that outside observation, we can more easily choose which thoughts to accept and which ones to reject. (Hint: you should accept all the ones that are rooted in your worth, love, and value. And vehemently reject all the ones that label you as incapable, unlovable, unworthy, and invaluable.)
It’s all about the mind-body connection! Auto pilot turned off. Activation and growth turned on. And adaptogens are great tools for this when taken over periods of time!

Naturally, I gravitated towards Lion's Mane, He Shou Wu, and Mucuna. Whenever I feel myself teetering on the edge of destructive patterns, anxious thoughts, and feeling stuck, my go-to is Lion’s Mane (though Reishi would be wonderful too!). Whenever I feel like I could use a dose of extra happiness, I reach for my mood-boosting Mucuna jar. And He Shou Wu is just another beautiful supportive herb for the mind activation process. And they taste delicious together, especially with cacao. I got the idea for the recipe from Camille Julia at Becoming Fully Human. Best enjoyed with a side of tea and nourishing thoughts.

 Another Option...

Alternatively, you can smoosh the batter into a square pan and cover with vanilla frosting

1-2 tsp. monk fruit sweetener

2 tbsp. coconut flour


add Sun Potion Tocos
