Do you ever ask yourself after something’s happened, like a good workout or a successful business meeting or a tough day or an argument, ‘I’ll treat myself to something naughty…..’ (insert your vice here!)
I found myself a while back saying, now I’ve just done that huge workout, I’m going to treat myself to a bag of skittles!?! How crazy is that. I am going to ‘treat’ my dear body, that I’ve just put through all sorts of paces in the gym, to a bag full of highly processed sugar, e-numbers and a host of other chemicals it has absolutely no idea how to digest! Alongside that, my current endorphin kick will get a little higher with the sugar kick and then I’ll crash so hard I’ll hate everyone insight unless they provide me with more chemicals to get me back high!
Sounds like an addict if you ask me….
I sought out help. From my fridge! And I want to give you a few little super quick tricks I learnt along the way to satisfy my desire for a ‘treat’ but one’s that are nutrient dense and good for my soul:
