How has food impacted your life/health?

It’s changed my life and health completely. Switching from a meat diet to a plant-based vegan diet, I can truly see what people mean when they say, “You are what you eat.” I noticed I excel more in my workouts, and I am always energized. I used to eat a meal and feel tired afterwards because I wasn’t truly aware of what I was putting my body. Now, I focus on eating lots of fruits and veggies, and my body thanks me for that.

 

 

INGREDIENTS

For the Base

6-8 dates

¼ cup rolled oats

¼ cup cacao nibs

¼ cup chia seeds

½ tbsp pure maple syrup

 

For the Chocolate Layer

1 can coconut cream

2 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tbsp maple syrup

 

For the Mint Layer

1 can coconut cream

2 cups mint leaves

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

 

Toppings

Mint leaves

Melted vegan chocolate

 

METHOD

Blend together all ingredients for the base in a food processor until completely combined. In a small loaf pan lined with parchment paper, begin to pour base mixture in. With your hands, press the mixture down so it is flat and covers the whole bottom area. Place in freezer while you prepare the next layer. Next, blend together all of your chocolate ingredients until smooth. Pour chocolate layer over the base layer. Freeze for 15-20 minutes. Blend your mint layer, and pour over the chocolate layer. Freeze overnight for best results. Once done, take out and with a hot wet knife cut into slices. Top with mint leaves and melted vegan chocolate!
