The true trick to eating food that's good for you and tastes great is choosing "Real Ingredients"... what does that mean? Start by getting ingredients that come from nature and not the store shelf. Real, whole and created for a purpose.
To nourish and delight our body, and to enable us to have steady energy inside and out. Let's choose to get our "MOJO" (magic) from what we put on our plate.
I really like to cook and bake, and sometimes I find recipes that catch me with the title but lose me when I see what some of the ingredients are. So, I simply alternate healthier options in place of the ingredients that I know won't result in balanced energy and blood sugar... something we all should consider and easy to do.
Here's one I tweaked just a bit... try it out. I'd love to hear what you think!
