Today, my wonderful assistant Melanie is helping make cookies that are actually good for you! Melanie is 6 yrs old and she and her amazing mom and dad are all vegan. Making healthy recipes together is a great way to teach kids about nutrition, math, and cooking and just to have fun together. These cookies are whole foods, plant-based with no sugar, no flour, and no oil but still delicious! Bake some with someone you love!

My name is Heather and I’m from Portland, Oregon. I am eating a plant-based, whole foods, unprocessed diet, with no sugar, oil, or salt, to take off weight and regain my life. I once weighed over 436 lbs and have released over 292 lbs eating this way and walking for exercise. I call my channel The Butterfly Effect because I believe that all the small choices you make, over time, add up and have a huge effect on your life. I wanted to show people like me who have 100, 150, 200 or more pounds to take off that it can be done and we can do it together. I am far from perfect and have struggled with compulsive eating and been overweight for all of my life, but there is hope for me and there is hope for you too. What can you do, today, to bring you closer to your goals tomorrow? Please consider giving my videos a thumbs up, commenting and subscribing. I would be incredibly grateful for your support on this journey!
