Did you see Chef Mareya on Fox 5 San Diego yesterday?!?!
We got a high 5 and ‘can I get an Amen’ from Anchor Shally for better for you frostings for your family! What a wonderful testament.
Did you know that today’s children are consuming about 3x the amount of sugar than they should be on a daily basis?!?!
Check out how Chef Mareya reduces sugar, artificial chemicals and preservatives from our foods, especially for !! kids! It definitely starts with us adults to SET THE RIGHT EXAMPLE!
There are so many options available to make meals, snacks, and desserts fitter, more nutrient dense and safer! For example, you could try these Gluten-Free Dark Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting using all of Mareya’s secrets to swapping out the insane amounts of sugar without compromising taste!
