Do you eat store bought 2minute noodles? This stuff is SO processed that your body cannot break it down even after a few hours! On the right – fresh noodles made with real, whole ingredients like egg, wheat flour and water is easily digested…
Moral of the story: Eat real WHOLE FOODS that your body’s enzymes can break down.
A healthier alternative to chocolates…

Most of these points ring true, particularly #1 and #9 for me 🙂
Fudge has always been one of my favorite sweet treats, but after reading what really goes into it from traditional fudge recipes I decided to adapt it so that the nutrition side of it was given a boost.
Presenting …..chocolate bean fudge, I was initially a little scared of how this would turn out but after eating red bean in an Asian dessert, inspiration struck!
I hope you enjoy making this – I used a date paste to sweeten and a very good quality cocoa powder makes all the difference!
-1 can black beans, drained and rinsed lightly
– 1/4 cup date paste (soak 10 pitted dates in a little water then use processor to blend finer)
– 5 heaped tbsp good quality cocoa
– 1/3 cup coconut oil
– 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Line a rectangular baking tray small.
Place all ingredients in to a food processer and blend until completely smooth. Spoon in to the prepared tray.
Place a piece of baking paper on top of the gooey mixture and press down lightly to smooth out the top. Put it in the freezer for a couple of hours.
Remove from the freezer and transfer to a chopping board. Carefully peel off the baking paper, then cut in to bite size pieces.
Keeps well in the fridge. Enjoy!!
Lentils (or legumes) are a superfood – they contribute to your heart health thanks to:
1) Their high fibre content
2) They contain plenty of magnesium and folate
3) Are an excellent source of plant protein and iron!
Enjoy them 2-3 times a week in any way you like – Cook them into a dahl, or add them to bolognese, soups, stews and salads. YUM!
