This is how we coined the term, “Are you living your life yet”. It came out of my very soul when discussing the transformation that happens to people (in their mind, body and soul), when you change how you eat.
It took a long time to make this cookie and my motivation came from so many people walking into our bake shoppe and requesting a healthy “Energy” Cookie with no ’empty calories’. One with tons of nutrition, soy-free, gluten-free and vegan too, so that means no allergens like dairy products, no eggs, no dairy, no wheat, no nuts, no unhealthy saturated fats and I also added tons of ‘love’ (that always makes things taste better and makes them healthier!!).
Everything that is in it is intentionally put in for optimal health reasons. I practice this all the time and I’m pretty diligent at it because I know how good I feel when I eat what is nutritionally dense. No white flour, no white refined sugar, no empty calories that lead to gaining weight, digestive problems and other lifelong diseases we see becoming more and more prevalent.
You have to ask yourself why would you ever want to ingest food that can cause damage and inflammation to you at your very cellular level?
Every day our bodies are bombarded and saturated with toxins and pollutants from the environment and from the foods we eat. Every day we get a chance to REVERSE that damage and heal ourselves from the inside out as THIS is where chronic disease begins.
Here’s a place where you can begin to shift your outlook on food and really make some deliciously nutritious snacks for you and your family. World Peace Cookies are full of solid nutrition and will give you energy to last for hours.
(AND… YES! Use organic wherever possible. It is the only way to eat)
