This recipe is honestly one of the most amazing things I discovered this summer!!! 😍😋 Okay, I know what you're thinking... "Why would I want to take the time to MAKE S'more ingredients when I could just go to the store and buy them in half the time? Well, let's take a minute to evaluate the ingredients in S'more. Sure store bought marshmallows, Graham crackers, and Hershey's chocolate is a faster option for these summer treats, but that doesn't mean they're a better option for your health. Have you ever eaten a S'more before and felt kind of sick to your stomach afterwards? I have! And so naturally I stopped eating them once I became and adult.
Let's take a minute evaluate health facts on these products:
First Health Fact: All three of these foods are massively high in sugar, and corn syrup. With that in mind, a S'more is pretty much just a sugar cocktail! Sugar is highly addictive and toxic! Sugar feeds cancer and other bacteria and parasites in the body, and increases inflammation! Putting three high-sugar products together wages war on your body, and can very much lead to leaky gut and other auto-immune diseases.
Second Health Fact: All three of these products are highly processed and filled with chemical additives that are highly addictive and foreign to our bodies. When we ingest such substances, our body doesn't recognize it as food, and can make us sick simply because our body is on overdrive trying to protect us from "unknown substances."
Third Health Fact: These foods lack nutrients that whole foods, or food made ourselves, contain. When we eat large amounts of food that lacks nutrients it leaves our bodies feeling nutrient depleted, and can lead us to feeling weak or sick after we eat.
So... is it possible to find a S'more that has little sugar, proper nutrients, AND zero harmful additives? Yes it is! And not only are they healthy, but they also taste AMAZING and are perfect for every summer occasion! They're also really not that difficult to make, and can be made in large batches and stored in the freezer so they don't go bad quickly!
So what are we waiting for!? Let's get started! 😋😁
