Valentine’s Day Candy

By Ritamarie Loscalzo

Happy and Healthy Valentine's Day

Valentine’s day is usually a great excuse for filing up on sweets, then regretting it when your waistline expands, your face breaks out and your energy tanks.

Enjoy this recipe filled with amazing herbs that balance your hormones and nourish your body. They are yummy and contain no sweeteners, not even dates.  Instead, they’re sweetened with a hint of stevia and are perfect for diabetics (and for you if you have difficulty with candida overgrowth or other gut ailments, hypoglycemia, or insulin resistance). Actually they’re good for everyone!

Sugar is even more of a problem than fat when it comes to heart disease and cancer!

Try them!
