Part 15– Cookie Dough in the Dark
I get it.
Sometimes it’s just too much effort to change.
Maybe you even think, who f*&$ing cares?
Honestly, I doesn’t matter who cares, only that you do.
I’ve been good all day.
I’ve worked hard.
I’ve had a long day.
I’ve had to deal with people and their complaints all day.
I deserve a treat.
Nothing will help.
Why bother changing anything?
Even my doctor said it won’t matter.
There is hope….
I wanted so badly to believe this was TRUE.
In fact, I did think I was the EXCEPTION.
I thought that it didn’t matter what I ate, because I was doing this.
Maybe you are holding on to this excuse to.
Raw Chocolate Shortbread from Rawtarian.com
Every year I love searching for new recipes and then taste testing them for my Move Your Body Studio clientele.
My class participants and personal training clients love the box for raw goodies they receive every year and the samples they get to taste throughout the year.
This is one of their FAVORITES!!!
My clients now want to make these recipes because they are so delicious and satisfy the sweet tooth in a healthy way.
Oh here’s another one!!!
But somewhere deep inside of me, my feelings started to stir. I felt uneasy. Out of sorts. And I went to the pantry to eat something sweet. To calm me.
Because that’s how I dealt with things.
Until that moment.
So we are the typical family that loves a good burger, fries and milkshake.
And this is a super fun family meal to make together.
When I can, I love to upgrade our meals to be just a bit healthier. Such as buying grass fed beef, or local. Making our own fries from local potatoes and using coconut oil in the oven.
And lastly adding a yummy milkshake to wash it all down!
My kids love this. It’s a great step up from having a traditional milkshake. This one is loaded with nutritional goodness and you can add more ice and less liquid to make it thicker.
If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times.
I’m overweight because my mum is – it runs in our family.
I have diabetes because my aunt does – it runs in our family, you know.
You get the picture!
Chocolate isn’t just for eating, you can also put it on your skin.
Ever heard of chocolate skin care.
Sounds off beat doesn’t it? It is now a craze in skin beauty care industry. No doubt, the word chocolate means, in general parlance, bad skin- a cause for acne.
Chocolate became synonymous for bad skin. Now it happens to be the solution to perfect skin care.
