Handcrafting chocolate, listening to jazz, reading Jung’s Red Book, talking health, and sharing stories is a dream holiday scene. This past weekend I had the pleasure of doing all of these things with a soul sister and woman I admire deeply, Paula Ferraro, maker behind Scents of Awe. Paula is seriously a one-of-a-kind woman who treats all living things with compassion, celebrates the heart and spirit of what’s in front of her, and adds to the beauty around us in completely natural ways.
She handcrafts beautiful skin care and food products, and has a passion for researching the science and benefits behind all that she shares. It’s an honor to share one of her out of this world recipes and wisdom. She is such a gift and definitely one of the people I am most grateful for this holiday season.

Creating chocolate is a special process that feels really unique. It’s nice to follow a recipe, but once you get comfortable, it's beautiful to craft a treat that comes from your heart. Your signature chocolate becomes a piece of living poetry. It is very fun, meditative, inspiring, and truly endless with what you can do with it. This soul dessert is universally loved, activates your bliss molecules, and is a great thing to have on hand at all times during the holidays. It can serve as a functional wellness food that tastes amazing.
I love eating chocolate for breakfast. Usually I wake up, make a tonic tea latte with a piece of chocolate, just to get going for the first couple of hours. Then I would eat something like this chia chocolate truffle, it’s like a little breakfast bar and a perfect boost to eat throughout the day. It’s totally guilt-less and I feel very comfortable giving it to my daughter. It’s one of my favorite things to feed her because of all the medicinal factors.
