It’s that time of year where we all want sweets! They are warm, comforting, and help us get through those stressful Holiday parties. Of course, true to Dose Wellness, we have some satisfying yet healthy treats up our sleeves. If you go back through the blog, you will find so many healthy desserts that use no processed sugar and are great to bring to your parties and holiday functions.
Here are a few we love:
Chocolate Chocolate Cookies
The Chocolate Sea Salt Shortbread Cookies are even Digestive Reset approved, and of course these No-Bake Cookies are as well!
With that said, if you haven’t entertained the idea of purchasing my Digestive Reset E-Guide yet, you are missing out! The Digestive Reset is a 3 part guide emailed straight to your inbox via a PDF format. It is simple, easy to follow, and is complete with The WHY, The PLAN, and The MENU. In the Why we talk a little about the science behind the plan and what our goal is with each supplement and food suggestions working together synergistically to kill off any unwanted bacteria overgrowth in our digestive system. What most don’t realize is that we ALL likely have SOME sort of digestive upset due to our modernized, toxic world we live in. It’s good to do a RESET a few times a year to really help your digestive system and ultimately your health in peak shape! In the PLAN we talk all about how and what to do for 30 days. There are supplement suggestions, as well as, diet suggestions; all with links to make it easy for you to purchase and navigate any suggestions. In the MENU there is a 30 day menu (15 unique days repeated) that is specifically designed to give you the maximum amount of nutrients within the food guidelines; all working together to give your digestion the love it needs!
One last thing to note, did you know that when your digestive system is wonky, ultimately your mind won’t function properly (which can cause things like anxiety and depression), your hormones will be disrupted, your immune system down, and your metabolism wrecked?! Science suggests that all disease starts in the gut and we are finding that to be true in the naturopathic and holistic world!

Cacao: Cacao is where the cocoa bean or chocolate comes from. It is in it’s purest, raw form, keeping all of the amazing properties and nutrients in tact and bioavailable for your body to use. Cacao is one of the highest sources of magnesium in the world, along with 40 times more powerful in antioxidants than blueberries! It also has more calcium than cows milk! It really is a powerful plant and deserves a regular rotation in your diet.
Oats: Oats are super high in fiber which which help remove cholesterol from the digestive system that would otherwise end up in the blood stream. Unique antioxidant properties make them great for helping to remove free radical damage which ultimately can cause cancer and other diseases. They can help keep the immune system up, prevent heart issues, and stabilize blood sugar. They are a great addition to any diet!
