...and welcome to the Naturally Chiropractic February newsletter
It's Valentine's Day and
we're back in the swing of things!
After a very busy – and somewhat hectic – couple of months, Naturally Chiropractic is returning to normal... whatever 'normal' means. Our business hours have reverted to our usual schedule and Estelle is back at the helm after visiting relatives in Aus! Plus, we are delighted to announce that Jo will be back to work this month as well. To start, she will be in on Tuesday and Friday mornings, plus Wednesday afternoons.
Vanessa, who covered Jo's maternity leave with so much care and attention, will be staying with us for a half day each week but we are saying a huge thank you to Russell, who stepped into Estelle's shoes while she was away. We hope to see him again soon!
Fun and feedback
Another thank you has to go to Susan Fritz who took up the challenge to show us that her Naturally Chiropractic bag has a life of it's own. Susan's next adjustment is on us, simply because she made us smile!

And our final thank you goes to all of you who responded with your feedback on our charity drives before Christmas. It's really good to know that everyone loved getting involved with them so, of course, we will keep it up. We're taking a look at some of your ideas and will assess how practical they are. (You can still let us know what you think here...)

Thank you!
Chocolate is good for you!

As time goes by, more and more studies agree that dark chocolate has substantial health benefits — providing you eat it in moderation AND you eat dark chocolate, not milk, which has all sorts of added nasties.

Plus it's Valentine's Day,
so get stuck into these fabulous chocolate recipes and make your loved one smile.
Chocolate Chili Truffles

125 gms dark chocolate in chunks
1 tablespoon agave nectar or honey
1 teaspoon chili powder (or to taste)
0.25 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
60 mls coconut milk
2 tablespoons chopped toasted almonds (or whatever nut or seed you prefer).
1 tablespoon cacao powder

In a large saucepan, melt the chocolate over very low heat, stir in the honey, chili, almond extract and coconut milk.
Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes or until mixture is about the consistency of a thick frosting. Scoop the mixture into balls and set aside on a paper lined baking sheet. Combine the almonds and cacao powder then roll the truffle balls in the mix.

Makes 10-12 truffles

Valentines flour free
Chocolate Torte

120 gms high quality dark chocolate
7 tablespoons butter and 2 eggs
80 gms raw coconut palm (or light demerera) sugar

Melt the chocolate over a double boiler, add the butter and stir until melted. In a separate bowl beat the eggs with the coconut sugar until well combined then slowly add to the chocolate and butter mixture. Grease a small baking pan and coat it with cacao powder, pour the batter in, cover with foil and place in a larger pan. Fill that with warm water so that it goes about half way up the cake pan and bake in a preheated oven at 170°C for about 1 hour.

Lift the cake pan from the water bath and cool completely on a rack.
