One of my favorite things to do is make treats. There is something I just love about having sexy little morsels of food around that is healthy. A big bowl of berries or cut up veggie platter with delicious dips is right up my alley. But at the top of that alley....well next to a Vegan Donut....is chocolate!
There was a time where I would only eat milk chocolate...you know...the Areo Bar...yeah that kind of chocolate.
But now my taste buds have matured, along with my knowledge of ingredients, and no I will not eat an Areo Bar any more.
You may feel tired, cold or that you've gained weight. Maybe your digestion seems a bit more “sluggish”.
You may be convinced that your metabolism is slow.
Why does this happen? Why do metabolic rates slow down?

I'm always looking for an excuse to eat peanut butter. Whether it be a slather of it on a slice of gluten free bread, a shmear of it on banana chunks or apple slices for a delicious snack, or with chocolate! I mean who doesn't like peanut butter and chocolate?!?
Now I know that there are some out there with severe allergies to this legume (peanuts are not actually a nut), so I do sympathize with them. However, maybe a peanut butter alternative (Like WOW butter) could be used :)
Stress is an unavoidable part of our daily lives. A certain amount of stress is actually necessary for our
survival; however, the amount of stress most people are under these days is causing more harm than
good and can have serious health implications.
• 43% of all adults suffer adverse health effects due to stress.
• 75%-90% of all medical visits are in some way related to stress.
Stress greatly impacts one’s health; it speeds up the aging process and leaves us feeling fatigued and
demotivated. Not only is stress correlated with weight gain and the inability to lose weight, but it is also
linked to a wide variety of diseases including:
• Cardiovascular disease
• Gastrointestinal disorders
• Anxiety & Depression
