It seems like we hear a lot about mindfulness these days - living in the present, the benefits of cultivating a mindfulness meditation practice - but if you're anything like us, you'll be excited to hear that mindfulness can be extended to our favorite activity: eating!
If you have a special place in your heart for sweet treats, especially around a holiday dedicated to giving out boxes of chocolates and baked goods for loved ones in heart-form, it can be hard to avoid refined sugars. We want to help make your Valentine’s Day as meaningful and as sweet as possible, without all of the added sugar.
We chose honey to sweeten our snacks not only because it's tasty, but also because honey comes with a lot of health benefits when compared to refined sugar.
