“Going Steady” Blood Sugar Friendly Valentine’s Day Candy Raw Food Recipe

by | 0 comments

It's Valentine's Day today, and I have a lovely little surprise for you.

I'm sharing a recipe for low-glycemic chocolates for the special day!

They are yummy and contain no sweeteners, not even dates. They are sweetened with a hint of stevia and are perfect for diabetics (and for you if you have difficulty with candida overgrowth or other gut ailments, hypoglycemia, or insulin resistance).

Actually they're good for everyone as too much sugar is not a good idea.

Try them!
