Those who are unsure about following primarily raw, plant-based eating habits may be intimidated by unrealistic expectations that are associated with the word "diet." However, the Hallelujah Diet should be considered more of a lifestyle, not just a fad of an eating regimen. To make this easier to understand, we've created an entire database of plant-based recipes, including meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as juice, smoothie and snack ideas.
Many people are unaware of all of the delicious treats you can eat while following the Hallelujah Diet - goodies made up of raw, natural ingredients that still taste great without the guilt. The following pudding recipes, for example, use the natural sustenance in which God created for us, and they don't cut back on taste. In fact, you'll love how appetizing these choices are! There's no reason you can't stay faithful to plant-based eating habits with these tasty options.
If you're looking for a snack to send to school with your children or one to make for yourself as a well-deserved dessert, consider the following pudding recipes:
