Healthy Black Bean Lava Cakes

Hello my lovely PumpUp readers! After a nice long January detox, it feels good to be back this month with a sweet treat :) 

But just because we committed to a clean eating in January doesn’t mean February is about throwing all of those health goals out the window. I truly believe that healthy living is about finding the balance between kale and cupcakes. Or in this case, lava cakes.  

But what if you could have them both? You could have that cake AND eat it too. 

I know, I know, it sounds too good to be true.   

These Lava Cakes are ooey and gooey and taste like a decadent sweet treat but instead of flour, they’re made from black beans! Not exactly kale, but pretty darn close. 

I’m sharing these with you today because I think they make the perfect dessert for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re celebrating with your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/partner, your best friend, or even your cat (not judging!) why not indulge a little while secretly nourishing your body and upping your protein game?! 

Grab your forks and get ready to dig in. I can’t promise that you won’t get jealous when your Valentine falls in love with these Black Bean Lava Cakes…

6 body positive cards that are as beautiful as you are

If Valentine’s Day is about celebrating the people you love, why shouldn’t Valentine’s Day celebrate you? Be your own cupid and send a relevant, hilarious love letter to yourself from the bottom of your heart. These pumpupapp cards are an amazing way to start.

You deserve all of the cute doodles and positive affirmations in the world. You’re hot stuff, flaws and all (think Sriracha hot, and multiply that by 100). You’re absolutely amazing, at any and every size. Love your imperfections before you love your perfections. Love yourself.

Partner yoga for everyone! My friend Sanni (a beginner in yoga) helped me do this yoga video where we show you a cute routine that you can try with your significant other or a friend. It’s a perfect date idea for Valentine’s Day. Throughout the video I offer you beginner tips but also show you how more advanced yogis can flow together.
