No-Bake Matcha Lime Sesame Chocolate Bark

This no-bake matcha lime sesame chocolate bark is my favourite recipe I’ve made so far! It’s super simple and quick to whip up and is a great treat when you have sweet cravings, since the only form of sugar is the pure maple syrup. This recipe is also full of healthy fats.

A New, Healthier Approach to Your Detox This Spring

This Spring, I’m setting out to detox and clean up my life in a mindful way, with specific intentions and forgiveness, patience and love toward myself.
