Let’s see how…
Using Almond Flour In Your Beauty Detox Recipes
Since we are talking about love truffles here, I think it’s important to use only the best ingredients. This includes flour choices.
It’s important to remember that even the healthier flour choices are still flour, and are processed to an extent versus being a true whole food. However, there are great options available to us nowadays, that we can take advantage of!
Why I Love Almond Flour
Tastes good and provides a steady source of fuel that also won’t make your blood sugar spike
Deactivates free radicals in the mitochondria (power generators within our cells) — ensuring that our energy keeps flowing
An excellent energy booster
Combination of healthy fats, macronutrients and micronutrients
Contains energy nutrients, such as riboflavin, manganese and copper
The vitamin B2 (riboflavin) in almonds plays an essential role in energy production, red blood cell creation, cellular function, growth and development
Contains trace minerals such as, manganese and copper
Think about it like this: creating upgraded substitutions regularly (like choosing almond flour over all-purpose), can really go a long way in helping you stay on track. This is turn, will help you towards achieving your overall health and beauty goals.
These flours still have some nutrients (protein, iron, and fiber), and can be incorporated into your diet. However, the vast majority of our diets should be whole food based, with some flours incorporated in.
Dates In Beauty Detox Desserts!
Dates are nature’s candy. Sounds cheesy to say, but if you’ve ever bitten into a date, you know exactly what I am talking about. Dates have a consistency like a cross between a gummy bear and a Werther’s Original candy, but without all the fake crap and nasty disgusting gelatin (derived from animal by-products). Gross!!
And did you know that dates can help to keep you full longer? Yes, indeed! In fact, dates are great in controlling addiction for sweet foods. Unlike empty white cane sugar, they contain fiber and minerals. They are a natural, unprocessed food grown in nature.
You can see why I chose this natural sweetener for my yummy truffle recipe!
Though dates should be included as a part of a healthy diet, you should not eat just dates throughout the day. If you think of them as nature’s candy, they are still, well, a form of candy! Something we have as treats, not ever single day.
On the other hand, if you are trying to increase your weight (or build muscles), then adding dates is a great way to gain healthy weight.
Why Dates Are a Good (Occasional) Sweetener Choice (NOT as in every day. We do NOT want to add dates to the Glowing Green Smoothie, for instance!)
Medjool dates are also rich in copper—an important mineral that the body uses to help absorb iron, form collagen and red blood cells
Beets really are loaded with amazing benefits! They will help support your bodies natural cleansing process and speed the excretion of toxins from your body.
What a great way to indulge in these chocolaty treats! Knowing you are providing your body with the necessary ingredients to stay healthy and beautiful (from the inside out!).
It’s time we check out these easy step-by-steps and start creating a physical extension of our love!!
Add the almond flour into your high-powered blender.
Then, add the dates.
Pour in the liquid coconut oil.
Next, add the coconut flakes.
Add the vanilla extract.
Last, add your cacao powder, beet powder, sea salt and stevia. Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
Roll up your sleeves, take a small amount of the mixture, and roll small balls between your palms or use a heart shape mold…if you want to make it extra love-ing!
Chill in the fridge for a few hours to help the truffles harden. If you are pressed for time, you can stick them in the freezer for an hour or so before serving. Extras are great to store in the fridge for a week, or freeze for even longer! Enjoy!
