I am a 37 year old chick who has let her health/body go due to weight issues and eaten complete crap for most of her LIFE. I've lived most of my life half-assing it trying to get it together, and trying to loose weight, but have obviously failed miserably. This tumblr is to keep me motivated & strong willed as I go down this new journey... I do not want to go into my 40's carrying all this weight...

Admittedly I have yet to try a cronut from the bakery that this wonderfully epic idea originated from, but it seems awesome that there’s a great vegan recipe for cronuts that could be used to make these creations at home!
Credit to thecakebar for making the post about this recipe on Tumblr and therefore being the reason I saw it.
