candyHalloween candy yet??

UGH – the amount of candy my kids came home with last night is a dentist’s dream! I told them I think they should pick out 20 of their favorites and donate the rest. and I thought 20 was being generous!!


Here are some great tips on GETTING RID OF THAT CANDY from my girl, Lisa Leake, with 100 Days of Real Food.

AND, as I mentioned on my Facebook page this week, here is my recipe for homemade Almond Joy bars.

1 cup of shredded organic coconut
3 tbsp organic coconut oil
2 tbsp 100% pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp Himalayan pink salt or sea salt
12 whole raw almonds
1/4 cup melted dark chocolate chips

almond joysCombine all ingredients in a food processor for about 3 minutes, until a paste forms.
On a parchment lined cookie sheet, drop 12 tbsp & form into small rectangle shapes with your fingers.
Place one almond on top of each and freeze for 30 minutes.
Melt chocolate and drizzle over top – enjoy immediately or re-freeze.


Then , try to eat only one 🙂 Enjoy!
