When we are aligned with our higher vibration we are living our truth and we are able to see and think more clearly. We have more positive and powerful thoughts going through our heads and we can attract positive things to ourselves. When we are on that higher level, we have more energy, we feel inspired, we are happier.
We get to choose what we think about each and every moment, each and every day. When our inner world is peaceful, so is our outer world. It’s really that simple. I like to keep a list of the things that bring me down and next to it make a list of the things that make me feel good. I try to do MORE of the things that make me feel good more often and LESS of the things that make me feel bad. We can catch ourselves before we start to spiral downward, we can literally stop in the moment and change our direction. When we are in tune with this idea of increasing our vibration and staying true to ourselves there is no other outcome than happiness and success. If we were all doing this, we would change the world. Outer peace starts with inner peace. If we stay responsible for raising our own vibration we will raise the vibration of the planet and heal ourselves and the planet. There is no other way.
What does this have to do with Not Your Sugar Mamas? The intention behind starting NYSM is all of this. The idea is to put a really high quality chocolate bar on the shelves infused with good vibes. We believe that the energy from the food infused with good vibes will actually transfer into the person eating it, and help, even if in a really small way, to raise the vibration of that person. Chocolate, particularly raw chocolate, is an incredibly high vibrational food with more antioxidants than any other. It also contains the bliss chemical that we release naturally in our brains, so we feel happy when we eat it. So when we say we are “spreading the love one kickass chocolate bar at a time,” we are not kidding. We believe that by putting these high quality, superfoods into your body we are helping to shift the vibration. When we eat foods with more life force, we feel better. Food affects everything, even our thoughts. By eating better, we will become happier, healthier and more successful people capable of anything we put our minds to. We have unlimited potential as human beings. The only thing that sets us apart from the most successful people is the way we think. If you think you can, you can and if you think you can’t, you can’t. So try raising your vibration and why not start with some chocolate from NYSM?
I first fell in love with raw chocolate while attending the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City. Before that, I’d spent time in Charleston, SC, Hawaii and California as a yoga instructor, becoming increasingly passionate about health and wellness.
After discovering raw chocolate, I began experimenting with it in my diet and noticed the effects on my body. I felt like I was experiencing real chocolate for the first time. I couldn’t believe I’d never heard of raw cacao and that I couldn’t find clean chocolate bars in stores near me.
When I moved back home to Martha’s Vineyard, I started sharing my chocolate creations with family and friends. I knew it could be so much more. I just didn’t know how to get started. Then I met Ky.
After graduating from business school in Boston, I moved to Argentina and worked in International Consulting doing research for small companies. I was inspired by the young brilliant entrepreneurs I met along the way. I loved my job and had a really comfortable life in Buenos Aires but felt like something was missing.
During my time in South America and prior adventures in Europe, I was exposed to the idea of clean eating and living a more holistic lifestyle, a concept that I became more and more passionate about in my own life.
I came back to the States inspired to be a part of a business with a powerful mission and a positive impact. I moved to Martha’s Vineyard and started waitressing to save some money while figuring out my next move. Then I met Bennett.
TOGETHER WE ARE BRINGING TO LIFE OUR VISION TO CREATE THE WORLD’S BEST CHOCOLATE.
YEP, WE SAID IT.
In order to truly benefit from all the superior nutrient qualities of chocolate, we believe it should be eaten as close to its raw form as possible, just like fruits and veggies! When cacao is excessively heated, melted, processed, chemicalized, and combined with dairy products, it loses key nutrients like antioxidants, aphrodisiac and mood elevation qualities, and more.
Our cacao powder is processed at a lower temperature than commercially processed cocoa, keeping the integrity of the raw bean intact. We don’t add any artificial sweeteners, dairy products, or alkalizing agents because they inhibit the absorption of chocolate’s superfood nutrients.
We aim to keep the chocolate as close to the natural cacao bean as possible so we can deliver the highest quality chocolate you can find! We believe that eating really high-quality, nutrient-rich foods prepared with positive intention and love has the power to make you feel really good. We like to feel really good and want everybody else to feel the same. Who wants to feel really good? Go!
