Treating yourself once a week is very important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I know this may seem obvious but too many restrictions can really lead to more sweet cravings. This can potentially lead a person to veer off of their healthy path. We’re able to control our cravings when we treat ourselves mindfully instead of thinking of these times as cheating. Failing to treat yourself once a week can even result in binge eating making a non-issue a major one. This recipe below will help you treat yourself with less guilt and a lot of deliciousness. Enjoy!
