3 Ways to Eat Like You Love Yourself

3 Ways to Eat Like You Love Yourself


❤️ Have fun + be creative - from meal planning to grocery shopping to cooking… have fun with your food! For example, you can take out a new cookbook from the library, hit up the farmer’s market, or cook a beautiful breakfast for your family!


❤️ Take time to enjoy your food - put down the cell phone + turn off the TV, friends! When you focus entirely on what you’re doing (in this case, eating), your body will be more in tune with what you’re eating... and when you are full.


❤️ Be mindful - don’t overcrowd your kitchen… not with chocolate bars + chips nor broccoli + salads either! Instead, take time each week to plan + prep. That way, you don’t feel bad having to throw out perfectly good food because it’s gone bad before you can eat it (I’ve been there) or force yourself to eat something that doesn’t feel good to you.















Ingredients

- ½ cup gluten-free, all-purpose flour

- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

- 1 tbsp extra-virgin coconut oil

- 1 cup mashed avocado

- ½ cup + 2 tbsp pure maple syrup

- 2 large eggs

- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

- 1 dash sea salt


Instructions


1. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line a 9x12 baking dish with parchment paper, with paper coming up the sides of the dish. Coat with cooking spray + set aside.


2. Whisk together flour + cocoa powder in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.


3. Place a double boiler over low heat with water 1-inch deep in the bottom. Add the chocolate and coconut oil to the top of the double boiler and stir occasionally until melted. Set aside.


4. Place the avocado, maple syrup, eggs, extract, and salt in the blender; cover and blend until smooth. Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl.


5. Stir melted chocolate into avocado mixture. Fold in flour mixture, adding ⅓ of the mixture at a time, until fully combined.


6. Spread mixture evenly in the prepared baking dish. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until firm on top. Allow the brownies to cool completely in the baking dish.


Cut into 12 pieces and serve right away or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days!

This recipe makes 12 servings.

Today’s workout felt like a silly circus act: balls, ropes & swinging all the things! But it was entertaining enough for me not to quit and it burned, so I know it’s working! I want you to ask yoursel
