Our new favourite chocolate ...

This week, we are partnering with the 100% vegan, plant-based chocolate brand Pure Heavenly, who take pride in producing chocolate that has been created with nutritional expertise and that contains less than 1% sugar. However, their bars don’t skimp on the sweet, rich nature we crave with chocolate. Their special recipe uses a mix of sugar alternatives from natural sources: inulin (chicory root), and erythritol (from fruits and vegetables). These sweeteners are high in fibre and have prebiotic benefits and lower blood sugar levels.


Inulin aids digestion by increasing the number of good bacteria in the gut, which help stimulate your immune system and prevent infection. It also slows digestion which allows sugar to be released slowly without spiking, promoting healthy blood sugar levels.

Erythritol is low calorie and low carb sweetener meaning it has minimal effect on blood sugar levels. This makes it a good option for people with diabetes or those following a low carb or keto diet. Erythritol can also help improve oral health as it suppresses the growth of oral bacteria, which form a biofilm on your teeth. We believe in the importance of lowering your intake of refined sugar as much as possible.

If you often suffer from sugar cravings that you wish to curb, we suggest opting for food options or ingredients that contain unrefined sugars (such as fructose, coconut sugar, agave nectar, maple syrup or honey) or all-natural sweeteners, that will work with your body rather than against it. There is no need to deny yourself of that indulgence, it is most important that you stay in control of your habits and don’t feel dependent on refined sugar. If you need a helping hand in reducing your sugar intake, we believe that just 3 days of our wholesome, nourishing meal plans can help reduce any cravings, balance your blood sugar levels and reset your taste buds.
