Vegan Chickpea Brownies

I just wanted to share a quick recipe to satisfy those sweet cravings. This is an easy recipe for Vegan Chickpea Brownies. When you try it, you can mix in whatever you prefer. Sometimes, I make the cookie or cookie cake versions and they are slightly more chewy because I use less extra ingredients. I actually took these pictures last year but finally made time to finish the video.

SN: This stuff is time consuming. Literally took 3 hours to get it the way I wanted it. Glad it worked out lol

Just Because…

This week has been a total win for me! I have adjusted to my new plan and let me tell you that I just feel so alive. Waking up at 5:30AM and going bed at 9:30PM works best for me. Those extra 30 minutes in the morning allow me time to get my 5k training session done. It’s crazy! Sticking to the schedule is becoming more natural each day. I’ve declined free foods offered by people that were not apart of my plan. I honestly did not know it would go so well the first week. But who ever won a battle by thinking they already lost?

Today after I got off work and began the long drive home, I kept contemplating whether I wanted to go straight to the gym or go home first to take care of other things. I chose to workout. When I arrived in the parking, I pondered some more. Do I want to wait until its less crowded? Do I have to do this today? Can I find a friend who wants to come with me? I was perplexed because my “camera shyness” was seeping in but I really wanted to workout. I chose to workout. Now after my workout, I feel fabulous and I’m excited about the future I’m choosing. I realize that I don’t have to be scared of the me now. It’s important that I look in the mirror and appreciate the me now because I wont always look this way. That truth simply makes this journey more valuable. In fact my visual motivators are two pictures of myself. One is from early college years when I was at the most fit physique in my young adult life and the other is from last month. So I just tell myself, it’s the same story just a different day.

Hmm, what else made this week a win. It’s gonna rain tonight which means Ber doesn’t have to water the garden. #FreeWater
