Dr Jockers Comments:
What a great superfood combination! The synergy between dark chocolate, coconut oil and goji berries is extraordinary. This recipe helps boost dopamine and improve mental clarity and performance. I think we could all use a bit more of that!
This recipe provides key polysaccharides within the goji berries that help feed and coordinate the immune system, good fats from the coconut oil to stabilize blood sugar and provide great fuel for the body, protein from the nuts and anti-oxidants in the chocolate and goji’s.
People often like to have this as a treat after dinner but I would recommend having it during the day as it is stimulating. The benefits of stimulating foods are they improve mental clarity and drive better performance. The downside is that they can keep you from sleeping if you have them too late in the day! So it is best to avoid this later in the day if you feel you are sensitive to stimulants.
