The games of the 31st Olympiad are underway, and our country's top athletes are in Rio competing against the best in the world. At this level of competition, winning and losing is often determined by inches, fractions of seconds, or tenths of points. These athletes need every edge they can get to ensure their place in history. In the first 60 years of the 20th century, Russian weight lifters dominated the sport. Their secret weapon was massive pemmican intake to build muscle strength.

Of all the treats available, chocolate is one of the most craved foods in the world. The first solid chocolate bar, made from cocoa butter, cocoa powder and sugar, was introduced by the British chocolate company J.S. Fry & Sons in 1847, but the history of chocolate goes back at least 4,000 years.1
Throughout its history, chocolate - "the food of the Gods" - has remained a symbol of luxury, wealth, and power. During the 14th century, the Aztecs and Mayans even used cacao beans as currency.
Research has also revealed chocolate has some rather impressive health benefits, provided you're willing to give up the now-familiar sweetness of modern day milk chocolate.
"We just had this for breakfast for the first time and it was a winner all around. All the kids (ages 8-16) liked it as did I. I have no doubt my husband will, too. We fried it up in a cast iron skillet, browning both sides. Since it's already cooked, it fries up quickly. It will definitely end up being a once-a-month treat!"
"These easy Paleo grass fed meatballs are like a warm hug after a long day. You can make them ahead of time and and just pop them in the sauce at the last minute or you can leave them simmering in your crock pot. This easy dish will fill you up without filling you out. Grass fed beef has a healthy fat called CLA that actually burns fat off our bodies."
