Paleo raw snickers cake

It looks like it is a common misunderstanding, that transitioning to healthy diet means saying bye bye to sweet treats. The key to success here is to carefully choose the healthier and more stomach friendly options. The most important rule, stay away from the refined sugar, it brings nothing good. Secondly, when reading labels, if you see preservatives, emulsifiers or other additives, which sound like something from outer space, put the product back on its shelf.

Healthy eating means being conscious of what you eat. That’s why the easiest and most of the times, the cheapest way, is to make treats by yourself. So, how about a raw snickers cake? Ohh yeah! Healthy eating doesn’t mean you will never get the taste of your old, not so healthy sweets. I introduced this cake to my friends, which are still at the beginning of their journey to change food habits and… they were amazed! They literally loved it! I was told that it tastes like the original one. So, no time to waste, make this cake too! 🙂
