It’s undeniable: food is powerful. What you eat, you become.
As you wake up, do you shove down a bagel while checking your emails, or eat a vibrant and nutritious meal with a side dish of mindfulness?
I love food. I believe that eating is not only a way to nourish ourselves physically but also a way to better connect with ourselves energetically. Especially if it's wholesome, nutritious food prepared with care. It makes all the difference.
I'm stoked to share with you my new favorite recipe inspired by my friend Chef Shine.
It's the most delicious and healthy peanut butter fudge I've ever had.
Enjoy it as a dessert, snack or an indulgent on-the-go breakfast.
