08 Apr Sugar-free chocolate-coconut truffles and the power of gratitude
In 2015 instead of New Year’s Resolutions, I decided to have a monthly focus that helps me bring new habits into my life. The April focus is gratitude. Gratitude seems a bit meaningless. Everyone knows they should be grateful for what they’ve got, because there are people out there that have a lot less… blah blah blah. If we are grateful only when comparing ourselves to others then I think we’re missing the point, because every person is on a different journey. I’ll explain why I’m finding gratitude to be a truly transformative force in my life. When you are grateful for something and you make time each day to have this realization, then you simply can’t abuse, mistreat or even take for granted what you are grateful for. For example, if I’m grateful for my body, then it follows that I treat it well. Gratitude almost immediately alters your mindset, you see. All of a sudden not eating processed sugar isn’t a struggle, but something that I want to do. So with that in mind, here are some sugar-free, gracious chocolate truffles I made.
