It’s summer. It’s hot enough to melt your popsicle. And it’s time to do something about it.
Inspired by the fact that I now use my porch in lieu of a microwave for defrosting things, I think there is an excellent chance that these insanely good-looking desserts will totally fly in (or out of) your kitchen.
Personally? I can’t wait to try #1 and #26… special mentions to – er – all of them!
My super supportive group of veggie-based chicas (and holla to the couple of chicos!) over at the Finding Vegan Facebook group has leapt to my call for healthy frozen desserts, so that I could wow you with their talents and save you, deliciously, from the heat. Remember when they helped me with this other amazing dessert roundup? Classic!
Luckily, it’s just in time, as I have decided to bite the bullet and give up a whole plethora – you heard that? A whole. Plethora. of foods I love in the name of fighting inflammation. Have you heard of the Autoimmune Protocol? You know, AIP? Well, sometimes, some people’s bodies can’t handle normal foods and stresses after a while and they freak out. This freak-out is called an autoimmune disorder. I’d like to explain it in more scientific terms buuuut… The Paleo Mom does it better. And you can find the whole stinkin’ no-list there, too.
Anyway, due to a number of such freak-outs, brought to me courtesy of my body, I think eliminating a bunch of inflammatory foods and eating anti-inflammatory ones for the next month or two will likely do me some good. Gluten and dairy are among those foods, so the fact that my Finding Vegan lovelies often omit such ingredients… I have a lot to look forward to in the dessert department.
(Yes, mom, I know… I am working with my doctors to figure it out, too!)
Now, I don’t ask for much. I really just want to share tasty things. But can you do me one little favor, and share back today? All I want is to hear from you.
Tell me, in the comments, what is your motivation to eat better? Is it your kids? Do you do it for future health? A health issue that has recently arisen?
I believe that opening up and building community with other health-minded eaters can be one of the best ways to stick with it on this lifelong journey!
Couldn’t do it without ya. #peaceout
