Let me give away one of the best Valentine’s Day desserts. 

Sorry for the daring title, here. That’s what my husband calls it. Sex in a pan. But the real name is Paleo Love Cake. Awesome , delicious recipe that we created for Valentine’s Day 2017. And I give it away to you below!

This is a great Valentine’s Day idea, and especially a great Valentine’s Day dessert for 2.

Delicious, yes. But also fat-burning, gluten-free, paleo, and super healthy. But no one needs to know that part.

You see, I specialize in weight loss and overall good health, of course. But I also love chocolate.

Are you a chocolate addict like me? LOL (awesome recipe below)

Chocolate is a funny thing, you know. Everybody loves chocolate. And everybody thinks it is so bad for you. Simply because it’s decadent.

Not true.

Don’t think for one second that you’re supposed to eliminate chocolate from your diet.

Here is why. Sure, indulging in the WRONG kind of chocolate will never help you. Any milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate is no good. Too high in sugar.



If you can find chocolate with 72% to 99% of cocoa, then you’re in luck. It’s actually not that hard to find. The higher the content of cocoa, the lower the sugar content. So the higher the percentage, the more you can indulge without gaining an ounce.


In fact, dark, high-cocoa content chocolate is full of fiber, which always help your weight loss efforts.
