I am on a rage today. It’s Day 6 of my Anti-Candida diet and now the hardcore cravings are starting to really set in. Up until this point I have just wanted fruit. A banana, a handful of blueberries, anything naturally sweet. But today. Oh Lordie, today. I want beer. I want chips. I want to dip those chips into salsa. I want French fries. I want scotch. In that order. Instead I am snacking on healthy witch fingers made from celery and almond butter.
Don’t get me wrong, they are a spooky treat this month and a fun way to indulge in a healthy snack but even the candy bars at the register of the store are calling my name. They never* sound good to me (*okay, rarely) and I definitely have never heard them speak my name. Until yesterday. That Snickers Bar, I swear to God, actually whispered my name. I had to flee. It was torture. I just want candy. I want chocolate. I want all of the chocolate. Sorry about that. I had to vent; it’s the only thing making me feel better. That and herbal tea.
Save all that sugar for Halloween and feed your kids an almond butter and celery Healthy Witches Fingers treats. Don’t forget the almond fingernails!
- 4 celery stalks, trimmed and cut in half
- almond butter
- 8 almonds
- vegan red food coloring
- Lather the celery halves with almond butter.
- Place an almond at an end.
- Drop a very small amount of food coloring onto the base of the almond.
- Take the toothpick and spread the food coloring around.
Hopefully I make it through the weekend. Okay, I so will but I just want to be dramatic right now.
