As I’ve been sharing, good health and eating well should be a total YES experience!
I believe that MOST people say YES to choc chip cookies!!! 🙂
AND, there are many of us who want to know that as well as indulging, we are also NOURISHING our bodies and are going to feel GREAT afterwards!
When you’ve experienced the incredible contrast of how GOOD it feels to live a healthy lifestyle, the LAST thing you want to do is compromise that by eating things that make you feel BLEH….
