Choc orange donuts

Brought to you by Filipa Bellette

Who said you can’t eat donuts when you’re eating healthy?! Buy yourself a donut tray and BAKE your donuts (using natural, whole food ingredients of course, lol). They are delish! I like using Pana Hazelnut & Chocolate spread on the donuts, but you could also make your own icing, or eat the donut plain.

You can have your chocolate & cake – guilt-free. Thank you, ma’am!

p.s. If you struggle with emotional eating & taking control of your sugar/chocolate cravings, you might be interested in my LIVE webclass that I’m running for Natural Medicine Week: “The ROOT CAUSE of Emotional Eating” (it’s free). I’ve also written a blog on the Natural Medicine Week website called “5 Imbalances In Your Body That Lead To Emotional Eating”. Search them out :)
