What is It Wednesday

You may actually decide this is good to eat based on the promise on the front of the box stating: 90 calories, 4 g fiber and REAL CARROTS. hmmmm?

You may also want to justify your intake of this product because you are watching your weight. I would invite you to watch your HEALTH instead. When you watch your health, your perfect weight follows. If you are watching your health, you will not be eating a product that has 35 of it’s 45 ingredients as indistinguishable, indescribable and unpronounceable.

If you are having a difficult time wrapping your head around the idea that this is considered an edible substance, image how your body feels when you try and feed it with this chemical concoction.

WHAT YOU COULD EAT INSTEAD that gives you the same flavors without the risk of a “chemical coma”? 

1. CUT UP AND DIP. Cut up carrots dipped in decadent dip . Make this simple naked dip by blending 1 cup raw cashews, 1 red apple, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar,  1 tsp cinnamon, juice squeezed from one orange. Pour the dip in a beautiful jar and you’re good to grab and go.

2. MAKE YOUR OWN CAKE AND EAT IT TOO. I love Emily of This Rawsome Vegan Life’s  concoction of this gorgeous- beyond ridiculously amazing carrot cake. It is very simple to make and a beautiful recipe using naked food in it’s most natural form,  I have tried this recipe and I have one warning for you! If you love carrot cake, this is a tad irresistible. Decadent and rich, I’d eat this one for dinner and call it a meal.

REMEMBER! Just because it’s in a box, on a shelf, in a grocery store, does NOT make it fit to eat.
