Dr. Andrew Weil’s True Food Kitchen & Mango Umami Sauce

A few weeks ago I went to Arizona to visit my sister. We decided to check out [the famous] Andrew Weil’s restaurant, True Food Kitchen. I’ll be TRUEthful and tell you what I really thought… WOW…? Best. Food. Ever….! So, what made it so WOW?

Who doesn’t love chocolate for breakfast?!

Do you see anyone raising their hand?

No.

But in most households, a chocolate breakfast contains a box of sugar-and-chemical-filled fluffy “grain” puff that are drenched in milk. NOT in this household…

When I talk chocolate on this blog, it’s in the lusciously dark, sinlessly healthy, and deliciously crunchy form of the cacao bean. Those dark pieces of unadulterated, raw cacao nibs. So sexy!

(Yes, food is sexy.)

And with those cacao beans come the perfect amount of rich, dark chocolate flavor with a small boost of energizingly natural caffeine.

Throw that wonderful bean (or in powder form! That’s cacao) into a green smoothie and life is complete.

For those of you who have not yet tried a green smoothie what’s wrong with you?! this is your jumping off point. Try it! You’ll never (EVER) know there’s good-for-you greens involved.
