I have been wanting to write a book about chocolate and superfoods for 10 years, it only took a lockdown to do it!! So I dusted off a rough draft from my hard drive and went at it!
It was actually a medical doctor in England 🇬🇧that got me onto superfoods, as she was concerned about the side effects of prescriptions, and wanted me to try an alternative route to my healing first. She completely changed my life!
And Lover was born out of that journey and these very superfoods.
LOVER'S CHOCOLATE MAGIC : MY 10 FAVORITE SUPERFOODS & DELICIOUS PLANT BASED RECIPES ☀️ is a 50 page reference guide to the superfoods I consider to have the most alchemical magic with chocolate!
It has 11 DELICIOUS chocolate recipes, each spotlighting a superfood. Easy to follow guidelines of the superfoods and benefits. And raw, vegan, gluten free, low glycemic chocolate bark, cake, brownies, frozen yogurt and more. You can bring the coolest chocolate dessert to the next party! 🍫
It can be found in the LOVER SHOP. I hope you enjoy! There's a free superfood recipe there too!

It's hard to believe Lover is just TWO MONTHS old today!
For anyone who is a part of the VegNews Magazine Recipe Club, you might have spotted us this week!!
Speaking of recipes, as well as some new chocolate products in the pipeline (woohoo), today we are launching two summer style eBooks! And they really compliment eachother.
It came about because of the positive response after the chocolate cake recipe, and some of you writing to ask what you can do to get into shape for summer!! Being a Certified IIN Health Coach (and winner of the Leadership In Health Coaching Award), I do love to share info aside from chocolate!
LOVER'S 5 GUT HEALTH SMOOTHIE RECIPES is a freebie. It includes gut health tips, and delicious plant-based recipes. I would love for you to download this and let me know how you go! If you send me pics I will upload them onto our Instagram too!
LOVER'S 7 DAY VEGAN MADE EASY RECIPE EBOOK has 12 quick, delicious recipes, which includes superfoods. Easy to follow, flexible 7-day vegan, gluten free planning sheet. Grocery store list that you can print out for your shopping trips! A breakdown of different vegetarian and vegan diets, tips and more!
Both are found in the LOVER SHOP. I hope you enjoy! They are really intended as a bridge to experiment and try new things this summer, vegan or not, they are delicious, and they no doubt work very well with your Lover Organic Chocolate supply!
So that's all from me for today.
Please stay safe!

I was asked so here it is... 😍 This is a really easy gluten free low glycemic vegan chocolate cake to whip up! No machinery required!
11/2 cups buckwheat or oat flour (air the flour before you measure)
1 cup coconut sugar (pop in blender to make it a fine powder)
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp fine sea salt / pink salt
1 cup good quality warm water (activates the chocolate taste)
8 tbsp mild olive oil / vegetable oil
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Hand blend the dry and wet ingredients together, place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until ready. Flip out of tray, allow to cool and add frosting!
3 tbsp vegan butter
1 cup monk fruit powder sugar
Dash almond milk (room temp)
1 tbsp raw cacao or 5 Lover chocolate hearts
1/2 tsp vanilla
Hand whip! Add, and decorate or just eat!
Lick all the bowls before washing ....
Oh and find your fix in any Erewhon store in SoCal at the check out!

We are one month old today! May the fourth be with you!
This year is wizzing by and it's already coming up to Mother's Day !
To celebrate we have a special 15% discount code open until the 15th of May. It's MOTHERLOVER. Give that special female force in your life some decedent healthy loving!
On a different note, I've been asked by some of you which global charities we love, there are many, one of my favorite is The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, which is an award-winning international charity dedicated to planting fruit, nut and medicinal trees to alleviate world hunger, combat global pollution of the environment, strengthen communities, and improve the surrounding air, soil, and water. They plant in public schools, city parks, community gardens, low-income neighborhoods, Native American reservations, international hunger relief sites, and animal sanctuaries. You can check out their website.
Back to Lover, coming up soon I will share more about our ingredient Purple Corn Extract (mega anthocyanin hit, GMO / gluten free), and other fun ways to use it! Hopi Prophecy says that when purple corn comes to the West it's a time of great change and healing. And here we are .......
Stay strong, stay inspired !

I made a quick 2 minute video this week about the green leaf stevia we have in our formula.
Every single ingredient we use is medicinal in some way, and we choose the highest quality ingredients available. A lot of stevia on the market is processed, but the green leaf stevia we use, in its natural state, is a herb. Of course as with everything, it's all in the way that you use it! Check out the video below! xo

These videos are really about my love affair with nature. My awe at the vast beauty of simplicity.
I grew up in cities, mountains, the outback, lakes, forests and oceans in both Australia and Austria, and I believe it's everyones birth right to bask in the beauty our planet has to offer. I can't imagine a world where our children nor the wild life who call it their home, are unable to do so. Our planet is worth taking care of, wouldn't you agree?
Whether it's our chocolate, or other products we create under Lover Organic Chocolate, we always do our best to find ways to contribute in a positive way.
That's why I decided to personally design these certified organic recyclable Lover T-shirts and Tote Bags. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
You can find our new range of products in our shop.
With Love, R xox

Welcome to our new website!!
We have changed Lover Raw Chocolate to Lover Organic Chocolate!
It's exactly the same pure and premium fairtrade superfood ingredients. We have been working very hard behind the scenes to bring an even better chocolate experience to you! I've been test batching maany (!) different beans, and doing blindfolded taster sessions, because it's an ever evolving thing, and every single ingredient affects the final bite you experience!
It's been quite a process relaunching Lover with a new production team, but once we are producing everything will flow on a whole new level. So thank you for your patience. We are so close to having our chocolate available to you again!
In the meantime, I have some crazy good news!
I personally designed a 100% organic eco product range of Lover T-Shirts, tote bags, magic mugs and stickers! Yes really! I will share all about these hot new items, that are in our newly launched Lover Organic Shop in my next blog.
Our loverrawchocolate.com website will remain active but we are transitioning to this one, so please bookmark us <3
Love, R xo
