How Chocolate Can Make You Healthier and Happier with Candice Puthawala

Have you ever felt like life is moving too fast and you’re not even sure how to slow down? With overwhelming schedules and long to-do lists, it’s no wonder we prioritize our careers and our calendars over our own health and happiness. But you can stop the rat race, change what isn’t working for you, and create a lifestyle that feels good, inside and out.

Welcome back to Once Upon a Food Story episode #18 with Candice Puthawala. Candice is a former model with a 19-year career in fashion turned wellness entrepreneur and founder of the innovative brand, Beauty Bar Chocolate. Having tried every diet under the sun while maintaining her fast-paced and chaotic lifestyle, Candice ended up with autoimmune disorders, chronic stress, inflammation, and complete fatigue. Determined to find the root cause and redirect her path, she discovered how to naturally cure her condition using positivity, meditation, and chocolate! Candice’s interest in holistic health and food as medicine deepened as she miraculously continued to heal her whole self by listening to (and trusting) her inner wisdom.

Now, feeling more vibrant and connected to her mind and body than ever, Candice is on a mission to help others find peace, focus, and glowing skin starting with a daily dose of chocolate. Tune in and let Candice inspire you to take care of your mind and body while following your passion along the way!
