Healthy Chocolate Fudgsicle

Do you crave sweet treats? I know I do. I have always loved sweets and to tell you the truth, I still really enjoy them. I am particular about the type of sweets I like, but my favourite sweet treat happens to be ice cream! If you know me, you know I am a big promoter of balance and mindful eating. I think it's important to enjoy the foods you love with the people you love, but balance doesn't mean enjoying ice cream every evening (sorry everyone). And because we can't be eating ice cream all day, every day, I am always playing around with frozen treats to help satisfy sweet cravings. As a child the classic fudgsiscle was one of my favourites, so today I am sharing my healthy spin on it. D

Lentil 'Bolognese' Raw Tomato Sauce

I must admit I do love a classic bolognese tomato sauce, but I also love incorporating more plant based meals into my routine. I am a big fan of lentils because of their meaty texture and incredible nutrient content. Lentils are an excellent source of protein, iron, and fibre. This tomato sauce is raw, which makes it super easy and quick to make. You can even use canned lentils to save even more time. This recipe is perfect for zoodles (zucchini noodles) or a combination of spaghetti and zoodles. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Ingredients: ¼ cup olive oil ½ cup sun dried tomatoes 1 bell pepper, chopped 4 cloves garlic, peeled 2 -3 fresh basil leaves 1 tbsp. dried rosemary Pep
