Easy Homemade Tomato Beans on Toast

This is my homemade version of baked beans. I'm not sure if it is very authentic, because there is no baking involved. I have always gotten a little grossed out by baked beans on toast, only because the only version I was exposed to was the canned version.

No Bake Vegan Chocolate Mousse Tart with Raspberries

Paring it with the magnesium from the raw cacao and almonds as well as the b vitamins found in sunflower seeds means that this dessert is wonderful for building healthy neurotransmitters and boost mood (most chocolate does that).

In terms of hormone health, this is the perfect dessert! It has some of my most favourite hormone friendly ingredients and is loaded with essential nutrients for hormone health.
