I am a quote whore. That might seem extreme but I seriously am. A quote can move me so much that I encorporate it into daily  conversations as if they were my own words. But I always wanna give credit where credit is due hence this list. Few things can impact me so simply then a solid quote. Some rule my life, some help me get a point across and others are mantras for how I approach each day. I have hundreds of them saved… on my desk top, on sticky notes, in my head. Below are 5 quotes I am L-O-V-I-N-G right now. Take one for yourself if one makes you feel something special. I truly hope these quotes inspire you as much as they do me. AND since this is a food blog, lol, below is a recipe for some insanely good vegan chocolate truffles I made for my boyfriend that made him go WOW and that made my heart so full.

Chocolate Mousse with Coconut Whipped Cream – Raw, Vegan

chocolate mousse 2

Chocolate pudding, or snackpaks as I knew them, were one of my favorite things in my brown paper bag lunch growing up. Looking back, I sort of can’t believe my mom sent those with me because they are so unhealthy, but they are delicious. These days, I still indulge in desserts but I strive to make them as healthy as possible while tasting as unhealthy as possible. Does that even make sense? I think you get it. This recipe is exactly that- its healthy but taste sort of unhealthy. The chocolate mousse is made with avocados, raw cacao, pure maple syrup and love. duh. Have to add in a dash of that. And the coconut whipped cream is three ingredients, none of which are dairy. You can serve this with the coconut whipped cream and cacao nibs, or serve with fresh fruit. Either way, you will not be dissapointed.

Its. So. Good.
