LOVERS Truffles *Raw Vegan Sexy*

Being happy isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’d be nice if it were, of course. Sunshine is definitely a big part of it – the best feeling part of it maybe. But feeling good is ALL of it. Embracing all of it — darkness too. It’s the moon. It’s the stars. And, how beautiful is that? How beautiful that the whole world is inside of you? Inside of me. Inside of us.

This Valentine’s Day, I can’t help but think of self love. How can I show myself more love? How can I be love? How can I radiate love? Being a Solluna {Translating to “the sun and the moon”) Ambassador for Kimberly Snyder, has really made me look inside. How can I help others and share the light?

It’s by loving myself. It’s by connecting. It’s following my heart – like my mom {I miss her SO MUCH} always advised. It’s forgiving myself. It’s for allowing myself to be human. It’s hard… especially when “perfection” lurks everywhere…

 But, in my heart I know it comes down to softness, to letting go, to going with the flow and to opening my heart to possibilities — and the idea of a new “perfect.” It’s journaling, it’s yoga, it’s laughing more and cuddling harder. It’s listening to pop songs and dancing without abandon with my mini me in the living room. It’s a sunset picnic and a dip in the ocean. It’s creating space and keeping boundaries. Protecting my energy. It’s date nights and sleeping well. And, it’s CHOCOLATE.

It’s making these raw, nutrient dense brownies and enjoying a steaming cup of glow tea. It’s spiking them with Orchard St. elixir powder No. 2 LOVERS dust and surrendering to the divine feminine. It’s letting go as the flirty pine pollen and passionflower mingle with powerful maca and sensual shavatari to heighten desires. It’s to sharing this libido-spiking, joy-promoting, stamina-enhancing V-Day treat. And, to whatever happens next ;)

So, cheers to self love. Cheers to sunshine. And cheers to darkness – for without it, how would we have dark chocolate?! I mean, how would we appreciate the light? ;)

Enjoy these Lovers Truffles this V-Day by yourself or with your SOS — alternately, if you’re heartbroken this love day, make my breakup brownies. They’re the perfect thing, and they taste just as good on the lips as they do on your hips!

The recipe here is a spin on Kimberly’s Raw Cacao Truffles in her first book “Beauty Detox Solution” – my healthy-living bible! Enjoy beauties!
