Does anything sound better than the gut-healing powers of probiotics mixed with the sweet, creamy goodness of refined-sugar-free chocolate with big chunks of flaky sea salt? In her new book, Tasty. Naughty. Healthy. Nice., Susan Jane White has made the dream come true, with these Sea Salt Probiotic Chocolates.
"Probiotic means pro-life. Naturally fermented food like yogurt is brimming with live probiotic bacteria to keep your internal ecosystem in balance. I understand how foul this may sound, but, trust me, these guys are on our side. Without healthy strains of live bacteria, our food would not be sufficiently broken down in our guts or absorbed by our bodies," explains Susan. "Thrush, bloating, and dodgy bowel movements tend to be the most common symptoms of intestinal imbalance."
She created these chocolates as a welcome alternative to more typical probiotic fare like fermented food and yogurts. "We use them as currency in our house when necessary. Our toddlers will sing 'Humpty Dumpty' in Mandarin for them. So will my husband."
