Healthy Whole30 "dessert" for the Holidays

The average American is consuming between 150-170 POUNDS of sugar per year. That's like eating 30-34 half pound bags of sugar you pick up at the grocery store. Can you believe it?! I don't have the statistic but I would guess a greater percentage of that sugar consumption happens during these last 3 months of the year. Sugar is not in just the obvious things like candy, soda, baked goods. Sugar is widely hidden in sauces, condiments, peanut butter, salad dressing, marinades, smoothies and coffee drinks. Consuming this much sugar or anywhere near this amount is so tough on our bodies and our minds. 

Now, I am not saying don't enjoy your favorite sweets but do it in moderation. If you are an all or nothing type of person, like myself, be very careful and limit how many times a week you allow yourself a treat.

Thankfully nature has given us plenty of amazing foods to sweeten our diet. I will admit, it could take a bit of a detox period to adjust to the level of "sweet" we are use to but it would be worth it. Here is a delicious and Whole30 approved recipe that incorporates the popular flavors of the holiday season without all the added refined sugar. 

Check out my friend Christina's blog for this delicious Healthy Cookie Dough recipe that incorporates, cashews, banana, pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, coconut chips and coconut milk. Yummmm!
