Did you know, carob comes from a seed? It is similar in taste to cacao, which is classed as a nut. Carob is a great substitute to cacao if you’re sensitive to stimulants and/trying to give your adrenals a rest. I highly recommend getting yourself some. Go for a good quality powder as opposed to roasted carob powder. It’s all about flooding your lovely body with those nutrients!
