Sugar Freedom Week 4, Day 6
If you’ve never heard of Chocolate-Covered Katie, then you probably haven’t been on Pinterest. Or the Internet. Or ever had a chocolate craving.
This girl is one of my favorite food bloggers, not only because she seems really cool and has a totally legit obsession with chocolate (soul mate!), but also because she knows how to turn chocolate into something healthy. In her words:
This healthy dessert blog is for anyone who wants to be healthy but refuses to give up eating delicious desserts in the name of health. Happiness and health go hand-in-hand, and how can you be happy if you’re not eating what you truly desire? My favorite food is chocolate, and I eat it at least once a day. I’ve never been happier. Or healthier. (Read more here.)
Who can argue with that logic? Not I.
Anyway, after a particularly hard yoga session this morning, I was craving something substantial. While checking my email, I came across one from Chocolate-Covered Katie that had a link for pizzert!
Pizza. Dessert. Pizzert.
AND I HAD IT FOR BREAKFAST.
Nothing is better than having dessert for breakfast and knowing it’s sugarless and 100 percent healthy. 🙂 Click here for the recipe!
The cool thing about Katie’s pizzert recipe is that it’s completely customizable. When I made mine, I mixed in a bunch of cinnamon (like 4 tablespoons) and some frozen blueberries, then spread some plain Greek yogurt on top and drizzled with Clean Eating Caramel. (And since I was going for a sugarless version, I used 2 tablespoons of honey instead of the 2 tablespoons of sugar the recipe called for.)
You can add virtually anything your little heart desires to this basic recipe. Use your imagination! 🙂 Next time, I think I’m going to do a peanut butter-banana version.
Head over to Chocolate-Covered Katie and give her blog some lovin’! And make a few of her recipes while you’re at it. I promise, you won’t be disappointed. 🙂
