I am never happier than when faced with a chocolate fudge cake – there I said it.
I used to so look forward to a massive pizza or a takeaway – even as a vegetarian for over ten years. However, since starting my CHP (Conscious Health Project), I have really started to notice that I am no longer craving the bad stuff as much. This was my plan all along and I am so thrilled it is working. I’m finding it even more true as I move over to the vegan way of life (there goes that chocolate cake *must attempt vegan choc cake!*)
I am becoming increasingly intrigued by things like super foods and foods that are proven to make you happier or lower the risk of depression. I have just recently learnt that apparently olives, humous and crunchy veggies (all of which I have been eating a lot lately!) have powerful antioxidants, “good” fats and B vitamins which your brain needs to help neurotransmitters and nerve-cells do their thing! (that’s about as “sciencey” as I have gotten at the moment!).
So whilst I don’t think I am ever going to lose my sweet tooth! I am loving the benefits of my new found food loves – long may they continue!
