Craving something chocolaty and sweet, but don’t care for all the extra additives? Try out my Vegan “Reese’s Cup” recipe. Feel free to be creative and add in additional things like pre-soaked raw almonds, or pre-soaked raw pecans. Or if you’re looking for something to sweeten it up more, maybe add in some fresh berries or sliced bananas.

JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are.
