DSC05022This is a perfect afternoon snack.  It will boost your energy and your mood and it is so simple that it hardly needs a recipe.

Happiness Snack

Crackers, Toast, or Nothing
Any Nut Butter
Raw Cacao Powder

Spread nut butter either directly on the banana or on crackers.  Sprinkle cacao on it and top with banana.  Enjoy and be happy 🙂


This is why it will make you happy.  I got this chart from Jessi, who owns Origins Nutrition.  Here is here fb page https://www.facebook.com/find.origins.nutrition.here.  Serotonin is one of the chemicals in our brains that make us happy.  In order to make Serotonin you first must eat foods with Tryptophan in them (like cacoa and bananas) and then eat food with certain vitamins that will help change the Tryptophan into 5-htp ( like nuts and seeds).  Then to change the 5-htp into Serotonin you must eat certain other vitamins that are in foods like nuts and seeds and cacoa.
