As Valentines Day approaches I need to make sure my boys have alternative snacks to take to school. I was looking for a simple treat that I had all the ingredients for and I decided that healthy rice krispie treats would be a fun option.
So, how did you do with your first challenge? Did you manage to take one of your favourite recipes and turn it into a fabulously healthy alternative? If so, keep going, your doing great! If it was harder than you thought, or you didn’t quite manage to make it as healthy as you could, keep trying, you will get there, trust me.
Today we are going to focus on eating better to feel better and we are going to start with 2 every day essentials.
Are you wanting some tips on the first step to better eating? Perhaps try new foods, give up wheat, or just plain feel better? It might seem a little overwhelming at first,but if you take it in small steps you will be surprised how easy it can be, and how you will adapt overtime.

- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 tbsp coconut milk (full fat)

- Our waffle iron make 4 individual waffles (or 1 large circle with 4 segments) that I found was enough of 1 adult and 1 child. This recipe makes only 1 waffle so if you are wanting more than 1 you will need to double or triple the recipe ahead of time.
