Sesame Kisses

Happy Holidays everyone! I was thinking of a new holiday treat I could make that would follow some of my diet guidelines of no grains, no dairy and no processed sugars. The result is this little bite I call Sesame Kisses. They are modified from a recipe for Raw Sesame Seed Bars from www.therawtarian.com and are packed with healthy ingredients with just enough sweetness to satisfy. They are super easy to make- no cooking necessary! You can form them into little “kisses” as I have done here, or you can press them into a pan and cut them into bite-sized bars. Either way, they are delicious. Read More

Slow Down You Move Too Fast...

I am not always successful, but luckily, I also believe that even just trying is one step closer to success! So why do you want to eat more slowly?! Read More
