When you consume sugar, you live a rollercoaster life

I know…

Blanket statement, right?

From my experience, both personally + professionally, it’s true. When you consume sugar, you’re more likely to be in rollercoaster relationships and emotions.

What would happen if you removed sugar from your life?

  • Imagine feeling satiated the whole day, so you’re not reaching for sugar when it’s 3pm and sugary treats don’t even sound good anymore.
  • Imagine being in a romantic relationship that is stable and doesn’t have extreme highs and lows.
  • Imagine waking up feeling rested, knowing your body is satiated on a nutrient level.

This is what happens when you stop eating candy, cookies, sugary beverages, sugary salad dressings, sugar hides in everything!

Listen, I didn’t eat a piece of fruit for 7 years because I was so scared to eat SUGAR. In 2009, I returned home from spending 8 months in SE Asia where I contracted parasites.

I stopped eating sugar cold turkey.

Some of my private clients have had parasites, SIBO, Leaky Gut, IBS, etc. but have not eliminated sugar. This is where I suggest starting: I want you to spend 14 days without sugar.

Some clients have NEVER had gut issues or food allergies, but experience headaches, bloating and fatigue – these women also feel unfulfilled in their romantic relationships, the ups and the downs.

I was someone who LOVED sugar…nothing was rich or sweet enough. That is definitely not the case anymore.

I was also addicted to relationships that were explosive and passion – filled.

While crushing the sugar, I also had out of control ADD – I went from a 2.5 GPA to a 4.0 when I started ADD meds.

I wanted off after 4 years of taking, so I got off but didn’t know how to holistically help my symptoms, removing sugar was MASSIVELY healing.

So, if you need any other reason to say ta ta to sugar, read more here.

Have a sugar binge and need a quick fix to tame the beast?

You have free access to this free 10 page guide that will take you through the three step process you need to get back on track after a sugar binge.

This guide isn’t a “do this and get rid of the cravings.”  Well part of it is, but we are digging deeper.  Get out a pen before you download and print.  If you don’t print, then open a separate word document or get out a journal, write out the questions and answer honestly.  Reading is part of the solution. Writing is another part and doing is the final step.  #practicewhatyoupreach

I wrote this for the “gal on the go” who doesn’t have every superfood in her cupboard.  I created this for the girl who spends the majority of the day in the car/office and already stops at grocery stores for quick and healthy pick me ups.

What happens when your blood sugar dips? Either you A. give into sugar cravings and grab a sweet treat.  Or B. you try to keep everything stable by stopping at a salad bar/smoothie joint/grabbing a nutrition bar that isn’t Clif or Luna.

I’m giving you an example day of how to keep your blood sugar stable that can be repeated day to day.

This 10 page freebie can be downloaded now until December 1st, then it’s BYE BYE BYE!

3 Guilt Free Halloween Desserts

PEPPERMINT PATTIES

  •  1/2 cup coconut oil, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1/4 cup xylitol
  • 1 tablespoon coconut cream
  • 10 ounces Lily’s sugar-free chocolate chips

Microwave 1/2 cup coconut oil for 30 seconds until slightly melted. Stir in the peppermint extract and xylitol until combined. Mix in the cream and stir until resembles paste. Set aside.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon 2 teaspoons of coconut mixture onto baking sheet. Flatten mounds slightly. (A typical peppermint patty is 2 inches.) Freeze these for about 30 minutes until hardened.

Next, melt chocolate chips with remaining 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a microwavable bowl for 30 seconds and stir until completely smooth. Remove patties from freezer and dip them in the chocolate one at a time. Remove using a fork and place back onto lined baking sheet. Freeze again until hardened, about 30 minutes.

BUTTERFINGERS

  • 1/4 cup agave or honey
  • 1 tbsp molasses (regular, or blackstrap for bars high in iron)
  • 3 1/2 tbsp xylitol or sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy) 
  • 1 1/2 cups corn flakes (GF)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • optional topping: 2/3 cup Lily’s chocolate chips

Combine first three ingredients in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil on medium heat. Boil about a minute, stirring constantly, then remove from heat. Add the peanut butter and salt, and stir until it makes a paste. Add the cereal and stir very well to coat, partially crushing the cereal flakes as you stir. Make sure the flakes are very evenly coated. Press into an 8×8 pan—lined with wax paper, or greased very well—and freeze until completely hardened. (Cut into bars while only somewhat frozen.)

If you wish to cover in chocolate (they’re good even without it), you can cover them at any time—either pre-cutting or post-cutting. Simply melt the chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Then spread over the bars with a spatula and re-freeze to harden. Store in the freezer for optimum “snap.” Makes 12-16 bars.

BROWNIES

  • 2½ cups pitted dates
  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts
  • 6 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp water
  • 1/4 + 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup or agave
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Combine the dates, walnuts, 6 tbsp cacao, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, water, and salt in a food processor. Process until completely smooth, scraping down as needed – It may seem dry at first, but don’t add any extra water.  Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan. Transfer dough to pan and press very firmly until dough is evenly distributed in the pan. In a medium mixing bowl, combine remaining cocoa and vanilla extract with the maple syrup/agave and oil. Stir until mixture forms a paste (this is the frosting). Spread evenly over dough in the baking pan. Refrigerate brownies for at least 2 hours, to set. Leftovers can stay covered up to 2 weeks in the fridge, or 1-2 months in the freezer.

Makes 16 brownies.
