Raw Lemon Macaroons

 

Great raw – vegan snack for lemon and coconut lovers!! Easy to make, but a dehydrator is needed to maintain being raw.  I have fallen in love with Macaroons lately and have been playing with recipes that I love!!  I hope you will too!!

 Raw Lemon Macaroons

 

–  4 cups flaked Coconut

–  2 tbsp Coconut oil (Purium has an amazing hand poured organic Coconut oil)

– put in processor and process until creamy

Add in

–  1/2 cup Agave

–  1 tsp Vanilla

–  juice of 1 Lemon – I even added a little bit of the pulp (optional)

–  1/4 tsp Himalayan Sea Salt

Stir in

–  2 cups shredded Coconut

Mix well.

Take by the spoonful and place on dehydrator sheets (you can also make balls and flatten out a little – whatever works best for you)

Dehydrate for 12 – 24 hrs

Enjoy and enjoy!!!

Sugar Addiction

Sugar Addiction

Now that we are in December and with Christmas right around the corner, I thought this short video would be appropriate in explaining what sugar does to us!

I know all the bake goods that come out as I did that for many years – but slowly I started changing that as come January – with the extra weight, or sluggishness it wasn’t worth it to me.  Don’t get me wrong – I still love the odd shortbread 🙂  but knowing what’s in it and what it does to my body isn’t a good enough pay off to eat them really for me.

Sugar really brings NO nutritional value to the body and steals from the body at the same time. Sugar really is an addiction.

I’m sharing this video with you today so maybe December will be easier with the plates full of baked goods AND I will be posting several healthy alternative, easy yet tasty raw / vegan deserts coming up – I promise you won’t be disappointed or feel like you are missing out on anything with these treats!!

Enjoy
