evepostappleOnce upon a time, there was a woman named Eve, who, unable to resist the luring temptation of a fragrant orchard, took a bite of forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Perhaps Eve was bored. Perhaps she was ovulating and had a desperate craving for something sweet. Perhaps life in the little garden was becoming stressful or claustrophobic. Perhaps she felt out of control or lacked passion in her life and in order to numb her emotions or soothe herself from Adam's lack of attention or his ambivalence in starting a family, she chose to indulge. Perhaps Eve was an emotional eater. But as Eve soon discovered, neither the bite, nor the whole fruit fulfilled her as she had hoped. Not only did she realize she was naked but that she had contempt for the way she looked. Perhaps Eve suffered with body dismorphia. Eve tried to stop eating the forbidden fruit and eventually avoided eating altogether but that didn't work and she ended up eating until she could no longer breathe. The point of this is that Eve lost her intuitive ability to nourish herself. She no longer had balance in her life and was willing to do any and everything to get that back.

Maybe Eve didn't exist. Maybe the stories that were told are not as important as the stories we tell ourselves.

This blog is dedicated to creating new stories based on the philosophies of whole body nutrition, self-love, intuition, fitness and yoga.

In my journey I have sought to uncover the knowledge and balance which have brought me to a greater awareness of health and this is what I wish to share with you.

These no-bake protein bars are great postworkout fuel (and a cinch to make)!

Fit Fact: Dark chocolate fights free-radical damage with flavonoids, and helps raise good (HDL) cholesterol and reduce inflammation, which in turn helps your heart and muscles get the most efficient flow of nutrients. The best part? Each serving of these bars provides exactly one square of chocolate (the perfect portion), so you get all the health benefits with none of the guilt.CHOCOLATE WHEY PROTEIN BARSReady in 35 minutes • Makes 4 servingsIngredients½ cup of milk chocolate whey protein 3 tbsp of almond butter ½ cup of ground oats2 tbsp of coconut flour 2 tbsp of ground almonds 1/2 cup of water4 squares of 90% dark chocolate (for coating) Instructions:1.
