Outside of really going off the rails via my eating habits on Saturdays (my splurge day), my eating habits are starting to change drastically!!! It's all quite exciting for me actually and the change came after several years of being vegan on and off - eating healthy only 'sometimes' - healing from a health condition called POTS Syndrome - and understanding 'food as fuel'.
I am starting to understand the connection between honoring my body and God (who resides in me), by nourishing myself daily w/ healthy organic greens - fruits - nuts -seeds. I will have to do a blog on loving your body b/c I am loving mine (and I want to hear more women saying that)! I am also starting to gain a full 'clinical understanding' of food's connection to illness/health and that's another post as well. I feel so grateful to be exposed to so much clinical data linking foods to ill health, thousands upon thousands of studies (literally) and educated people who are healing from every disease under the sun....with diet alone. Scroll down to see my post on who is influencing me via my eating habits.
Today? Let's just talk chocolate!!!!!
I get massive chocolate cravings! I love sweets! I don't want toxic processed sugary sweets anywhere near my body though. So, what's a girl to do?
My friend Renee mentioned this youtube.com channell, Holistic Habits and I am falling in love with her recipes! The recipe today is for 'Raw Chocolate Fudge'! I made it last night and let me tell you - mmmmmmmm.....you won't have words, just a slight moan of 'yummm'.
It's healthy, guilt free, of course kind (aka no animal was harmed) and actually good for yoU and your family! It will satisfy your sweet tooth all week long! And it's a fun dessert to make with the kids if you have them!
So, watch the video but here are the ingredients below:
6 Medjool Dates (*get the moist fresh ones)
Spoonful of Organic Peanut Butter (she & I prefer crunchy)
Raw Cacoa - sprinkle it in - I used a spoonful
Sprinkle or Sea Salt
Starting with the dates, you mash with a fork and then keep folding in each new ingredient.
Yes, that's it! You then have amazing fudge that you can cut into squares or roll into balls!.
Next? You eat my friend......most likely all of them!
