This month we’ve been talking about the benefits of a majority approach to healthy living. Just like the name “majority approach” implies, it involves making the healthy choice the majority of the time. Bet you’ve never heard that suggestion before 😉

To celebrate the majority approach, this month’s Tasty Tuesday recipes are all focused on healthy desserts and treats that don’t leave you feeling like a bloated exercise ball. Because let’s be honest, life is far too short not to eat chocolate.

Enter this healthy rocky road recipe.

Whether or not you agree with describing foods as clean or not, you have to admit this recipe made with real food ingredients is better for you than the sugar-laden, 3-year-old stuff you buy from a store.

Unlike processed junk food, this healthy rocky road will leave you feeling satisfied after just a piece or two. It’s rich, dark and full of flavour. But the best part, it’s full of nutrients too!
