I’m obsessed. Most “health” bars out there are dry and artificial, but these Pure bars are organic, vegan and amazingly tasty for a wannabe-brownie. They’re very fudgy - you may not be a fan if you like cakey brownies - and packed with nuts. I have no idea how they managed to make such simple ingredients taste like a fudgy brownie but I’m not complaining.
So if you’re craving a brownie but don’t want to splurge on calories or fat, try one out!

What do you do on a 94 degree day? Make frozen hot chocolate, obviously!
Yesterday I met my friend Andy for lunch in midtown. After lunch he said I HAD to try this frozen hot chocolate drink at Dunkin’ Donuts. I was seriously skeptical since I’d never buy one of these on my own… but it turns…
Raspberry Rockets (a.k.a. white chocolate filled raspberries that are perfect for a sweet craving)
20 raspberries (20)
20 white chocolate chips (34)
Wash the raspberries by holding them under gently running water or submerging in a bowl of water and agitating gently. Allow the raspberries to air-dry by simply putting them on a towel. Once dry, insert one chip into each berry with flat side of the chip facing you. Serve.
Each serving (10 raspberry rockets) holds 27 calories
