Top 4 Reasons to Eat a Plant-Based Diet + an Extra Delicious Treat



There are a lot of reasons why people adopt a more plant-based lifestyle.


Here’s a look at the most common:

  1. Vibrant Health: Most people make the switch for health benefits. Eating a plant-based diet reduces your risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and a host of other chronic ailments and diseases.

  2. Animal Ethics: Many don’t want to participate in the suffering of animals and/or factory farming.

  3. Environment: Animal agriculture is a threat when it comes to both pollution and climate change.

  4. Appearance and Energy: It’s all about that glowing skin and boundless energy!


Other great reasons include better sleep and an overall boost in your feeling of well-being.



Vegan Fudgy Treat?


A plant-based diet doesn’t mean you can’t indulge your sweet tooth every once in a while. As a bonus, I wanted to share a “healthier” version of a client-favorite treat!



Medjool dates are basically nature’s candy. They’re delicious! I like to keep some in my pantry in case I am craving a little treat.

Vegan Fudge Babies

This Fudge Babies recipe is straight from the magical mind of Katie from ChocolateCoveredKatie.com.


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (115 grams) walnuts

  • 1⅓ cups (220 grams) Medjool pitted dates

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • ⅛ tsp sea salt

  • 4 Tbsp raw unprocessed cocoa powder


Directions: Add all of the ingredients into a food processor, and blend! Then, with your hands, roll the batter into small balls. Eat one right away before putting them in the fridge :-)


Serving size is 1-2 small balls. These can be addictive so definitely exercise portion control!


I hope you enjoy them!
