Staying fit, both physically and mentally, has become a difficult task these days. The overwhelming speed and pace of our lives have made us lower the time spent outdoors doing physical activities, such as hiking and cycling. It's even more drastic for us, the software developers, considering that we are sitting stuck at our desk most of the working and non-working days.

Not that long time ago, I decided to change that. I started working out, eating healthier food, keeping the workout I'm working out 4 times a week and I feel much better because of that.

So, pick up your hiking sneakers and spend some time outdoors. It's crucial to have activities not related to programming, and besides, being fit brings you health and a positive state of mind, which is extremely important.


If I could do it, so can you! There is no excuse!

The Recipe

The actual chocolate is quite simple to make, and yet very tasty. A couple of short steps and you're done.


  • 1/2 cup (coffee) of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of ground almond
  • 3 teaspoons of organic cocoa
  • 1/2 cup (coffee) of oatmeal (already boiled)
  • 1 cup (coffee) of raspberries (or mixed red fruits)
  • 2 teaspoons of honey

Note that, depending on the desired density, you can add more oatmeal or honey. Oatmeal will increase the density, and honey will do the other way around. Beware, though, if you add too much honey it will not be able to dense properly.


  • Mix everything in a bowl
  • Create a mold with baking paper and fill it with the chocolate
  • Put it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours

That's it! Your healthy chocolate is ready. Enjoy! The finished product looks something like this:
