Because if you’re going to treat yourself you might as well make it worth it.

If there’s one thing we can all agree on at Lifesum, it’s that we enjoy food, and we want our users to enjoy food too! Food isn’t just energy for the body, it’s also nourishment for us, it helps us to feel good both physically, but also in our souls. We believe good food does just that, feeds the body and the soul.

With that being said, we thought we’d give you a few delicious and healthful recipes to try out this weekend. Treat yourself!

Peanut Butter Fudge

from Eat Healthy Eat Happy


Why cook when you don’t have to? These thick, chewy pieces of fudge are packed full of healthy protein and healthy fat, and don’t contain any refined sugar! Here’s how to make them.

Mocha Mousse

from Desserts with Benefits


Jessica from Desserts with Benefits loves¬†chocolate, so you know that if she has a recipe and she loves it, you can trust that it’s going to be good. This recipe isn’t completely vegan, but that can easily be fixed by swapping out the dark chocolate she uses for a vegan brand. That’s it. Find out how to make this luscious mousse right here.

Maple Vanilla Baked Pears

from Sally’s Baking Addiction


If you have yet to try baked pears, you’re missing out. They are great. There’s something about heating pears that just enhances their natural sweetness and flavour, and teamed with a little nutty flavour or something a little cold and creamy, they make the perfect¬†dessert. Sally’s recipe only uses 4 ingredients, and is so easy you can’t go wrong. Get the recipe here.

Why wait till easter for Reese’s eggs when you can make your own all year round that are grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and free of any weird additives? Exactly. Get Monique’s recipe here.

  • Our systems are dependant on the food we consume so eating well should be a top priority for us. Foods rich in vitamins and minerals are critical for proper functioning and without these, your body and mind will start to deteriorate much faster. Knowing what to consume is based on so many individual factors and I can help figure those factors out. I am a nutritional therapist in Cape Town, love your thoughts.
