Raw Carrot Bites | Guest Contributor – One Change a Week
I recently stumbled across One Change a Week on Facebook. I love their concept and passion for spreading the word about healthy eating and the benefits it can have on your whole life.
One Change a Week are two friends – Marit and Erika – who share a similar passion for all things healthy for both the mind and body. They are on a journey to better our knowledge of how to feed the body and mind with natural foods as well as removing nasties from the outside world. They created One Change a Week to share their knowledge and help others to improve their health and well-being.
Their recipes are so simple and a healthy alternative to processed snacks. Here is the first recipe.

1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
