Wellness Wednesday: 3-Ingredient Cookie

cookieHappy Wednesday, friends! We have reached the halfway point of the work week and I hope yours is going as well as mine. I’ve been crushing my fitness and healthy eating goals, meditating daily, and really focusing on myself. In my previous commitment to living a healthier lifestyle, I put a lot of pressure on myself and wasn’t able to find the balance between moderation and total indulgence–it was all or nothing. Healthy living meant food was boring and plain, and you could forget about dessert. The truth is, however, that making healthy decisions means being aware of what you put into your body, and when you put good things into it, you get good things out of it. Thankfully I’ve expanded my understanding of health and wellness, and want to share a treat that is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth! This recipe has just three whole ingredients. No fillers, no artificial sweeteners, just whole, natural goodness. Enjoy!
