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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
Instructions: Blend all ingredients together until it forms a cookie-dough like consistency. Spoon or roll into balls and place on wax paper on a plate or pan. Place them in the freezer until firm.
The best part about eating healthy desserts is that you’re completely free of guilt. Your mind is happy, your body is happy and your taste buds are happy. It just doesn’t get much better than that!
So try these Pumpkin Golden Bites and prove those sweet-tooth naysayers wrong!
