Holistic Nutrition Recipe for Divine Raw Brownies

Posted by on Wed, Jun 17, 2015

 

I’m about to change your life. Ready?

Raw brownies.

Who knew brownies could be packed with protein, omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants? These raw brownies are made with wholesome ingredients. Best of all, they are made without an oven! Unless you don’t have a dehydrator…then you’ll need your oven. But make sure to keep the oven temperature under 115 degrees, to keep these brownies alive and raw.

You will be totally surprised at how incredibly rich and satisfying these are with just six ingredients.

I don’t buy dessert or sweet things. It makes it a lot more fun when I’m in the mood for chocolate because it makes me get creative with it. I use to have a sweet tooth, but ever since I started drinking kombucha my sugar cravings have pretty much disappeared. But let’s face it- sometimes I want some chocolate! I use to just mix cacao, coconut oil and honey in a bowl, and that would completely satisfy my need. But now, I have really upped my game with raw brownies!

What Can Digestive Enzymes Do for You?

Posted by on Wed, Oct 09, 2013

Did you know that according to TIME magazine, 97% of Americans can not remember the last time they ate a salad?
 
As we age, typically, our bodies produce 13% fewer enzymes than the decade before. Yikes !!

Sort of explains why we are enzyme deficient, right?

Your body has many types of digestive enzymes. RAW food is abundant in digestive enzymes.

Enzymes help break the food down so we can actually use the nutrients in the food.
