Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

By Julie:

I love eating a vegan diet.

 

The first week that I decided to “try” it out, I noticed a huge change in the way that my body felt. I didn’t feel sluggish, bloated, or exhausted the way I used to feel after eating a huge cheeseburger. 

The hardest thing for me to cut out of my life while making my transition was sweets. I love chocolate, and unfortunately, I’ve never tasted anything that is “too rich” for me to handle. 

 

My sweet tooth was suffering…

 

Until I found this blog.

The girl who writes this blog eats a raw vegan diet, is very young, and makes some beautiful (and delicious) raw desserts. 

Initially, I was a little skeptical of these raw desserts because… “real” dark chocolate.

However, I have found that I was sadly mistaken. Her recipes taste incredible (husband approved), are easy to make, and don’t leave you feeling like you have a bunch of bricks in your stomach afterward. 

You could even eat one of these “desserts” for breakfast if you’d like!

Recently, A friend and I decided to take a whack at Emily’s (from This Rawsome Vegan Life) peanut butter cookie ice cream sandwiches … obviously a recipe for success. 

I would highly recommend that you check it out. 

Here are a few pictures from The Blog: This Rawsome Vegan Life:

One more reason that I love this blog… She has great photography. I’m a sucker for a good design.

Check out the recipe on Emily’s blog here

A couple of changes that I made:

* I added some enjoy life chocolate chips to the top of my cookies

* I added some coconut flakes to the cookie dough for more flavor

 

They were so easy to make, and they tasted great! We ate almost all of them by ourselves!

What are some of your favorite vegan (or raw) desserts?

Sriracha Monday

Are You Fed Up?

By Julie:           Recently, a documentary called “Fed Up” came out on DVD. It’s about obesity and how it relates to sugar intake. Obviously, I had to buy it to check it out for myself.        After I finished watching this
