These Healthy Pumpkin Golden Bites De-Bunk All Sweet Tooth Myths

These Healthy Pumpkin Golden Bites De-Bunk All Sweet Tooth Myths

I stopped eating sugar when I was 12 years old and kept it up for about 6 years.

When I would tell people that I wasn’t eating sugar, I would usually get one of two reactions. The first was a complete jaw drop. “You don’t eat SUGAR? How do you SURVIVE?” And the second was less exciting. “Oh, really? Can I have your cookie then?”

Even if you’re not cutting sugar completely off the list, eating healthy and staying away from excessive sweets is a CHALLENGE.

I’m here to make it easier for you.

The Sweet Tooth Myths

Here are a few things that the general public believes about desserts and treats. I’m sure you’ve heard one or two of them yourself.

  1. If it doesn’t have sugar, it’s just not going to taste good. You might as well eat dirt.
  2. Buying and making healthy treats is way too time consuming and expensive. Sure you’re healthy, but you’re also broke.
  3. Healthy treats don’t taste even remotely close to “the real thing.”
  4. Healthy treats won’t satisfy your sweet tooth and will leave you lonely and depressed. You’ll just end up binging on Oreos the next day anyway.

You and I both know that every one of these is a load of bogus and I have yet another delicious recipe to prove it!

 

Pumpkin Golden Bites With Dark Chocolate

If you’re a fall lover like me, you know that it just isn’t fall without pumpkins. Pumpkin colors, pumpkin smells, pumpkin flavors and just plain old pumpkins.

These Pumpkin Golden Bites will knock your fuzzy socks off with flavor. They’re so easy to make (can it get much easier than a blender?) and they’re delicious. Not only do they taste good, but with just one scoop of Organifi Gold Powder, check out all the good they're doing your body too!

  • Contain antioxidants to super-boost your immune system

  • And so much more!

Seriously, I could go on and on about Organifi Gold and its incredible benefits for your daily health.

But you’re probably anxious to get to the recipe, so I won’t keep you from this scrumptious dessert any longer!
