The Colossal Healthy Chocolate Bar, My New Roots
"These truly colossal creations have everything you could ever want: tasty cookie, ooey gooey chewy caramel, crunchy roasted nuts, divinely rich chocolate, and tiny salt kisses. I am so darn proud of this recipe, and I can’t believe that such a decadent thing can exist without making me feel lousy after eating it. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say that I feel colossally healthy after eating one. Or two. Stop looking at me like that."
"With plenty gratitude, the attitude of Mindfulness will arise naturally, moment after moment, day after day, month after month, and so on for the remainder of a life lovingly lived. Cultivate plenty of gratitude with daily meditation, write, open up with those that love you best."
