The health and wellness sphere can be quite confusing at times. It’s incredibly easy to get caught up in the latest fad, and jumping in full steam ahead can be at times more detrimental than beneficial. With so many influencers out there, the pressure of doing what’s right for you can seem all too much to cope with.
It’s in these regards that I always come back to and promote intuitive eating. Yes, this may include experimenting with certain foods and ways of eating, but ultimately it’s finding what feels good and what makes you happy and full of energy. These Chocolate Nut & Seed Clusters are a perfect example of a delicious and nutritious treat, that will leave you feeling great and satisfied. Continue reading

Slice them into squares once frozen, pop them into a lunchbox, and you have yourself a healthy treat or snack to satisfy any lurking cravings or hunger pangs. Continue reading
