Why we ALL need to eat better!

Standard

Yesterday, I found myself reaching into my sisters candy bag for some artificially sweetened and artificially colored and flavored candy…

I pride myself on my healthy eating habits, and my commitment to a better self.

WHY was I eating this?

Simple answer, it was as Tony Robbins calls it… a quick fix to a larger problem (my shaky commitment to healthy treats)

Of course, as soon as the candy hit my mouth all the expectations of sweet sugary cherry yummy-ness faded, as I was faced with the fact that I knew it wouldn’t do any good for my body.

In this moment of weakness, I had to options…

1) spit out the junk and find something fresh

2) eat it, and write a kick-butt blog post about it

I chose the latter, and I chose to from here on out, commit to a life where I not only pride myself on eating correctly, but also follow through.. even with the little things.

I know that this post, will now hold me even more accountable to make the right choices.

PS: We can all do this!!

Healthy vegan Chocolate Oatmeal

Standard

This is by far the best way to have oatmeal I’ve ever tried! I would like to add a few strawberries, or raspberries when they are in season, I bet those would make a great addition!

Healthy Vegan Chocolate Oatmeal: (Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie)

-1/2 cups Rolled Oats

-3/4 cup Almond milk (make yours homemade with ida-the-vita)

-2 tablespoons raw Cacao powder (cocoa will work too)

-1 tablespoon Honey

-One banana

In a small sauce pan, mash the banana in the almond milk, and add all the other ingredients. Cook for 5 minutes on medium high heat, stirring with a fork often when it starts to bubble! Enjoy!

Chocolate, and whole grains… What a great way to start the day!
