"Help me remember I am only light borrowing this flesh for one brief moment, one brief life."
I know I made the choice to do a little cleanse and not eat sugar for over a month, but I have still been making and eating treats every day! WTF? They are sugar-free treats (just sweetened with dates) but I still feel like I am cheating a little bit. I would like to let of the attachment I have to eating something sweet after every meal. At least I am only eating natural fruit sugars right now. But still, I have a problem!
I have been making treats like these for years, but this particular recipe is adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie's Fudge Babies. I'm going to call them:
Chocolate Bliss Balls!
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1 cup dates
- 2 tbsp raw cacoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Sprinkle of sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend away!
Then proceed to roll into balls of bliss :-)
I also made these.
Macaroon Bliss Balls!
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1/4 cups shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup dates
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp coconut extract
- Sprinkling of cinnamon
- Sprinkling of salt
- Sprinkling of cacao nibs
Combine all ingredients (except cacao nibs) in food processor or blender and blend away! Then add the cacao nibs and roll into balls.
Breakfast was pretty today which always makes me happy!
Homemade granola, coconut milk, blueberries, strawberries, raisins and cacao nibs :-) So wonderful.
Dinner was also very pretty!
Greens, hard boiled egg, baby tomatoes, baby bell peppers, black olives and cilantro.
Topped with hummus, nutritional yeast and garlic gold. So satisfying :-)
Well, there is a handsome man sitting next to me so I'm going to go hang out with him now :-) Thanks for reading and being awesome. Much love <3
