Hello, my name is Katie and I am on a real food and unprocessed living journey. I share my journey on my blog, Girl Meets Nourishment. I am getting back to the basics preparing food the old-fashioned way and discovering new ideas for a healthy life. This veteran vegetarian of nine years now proudly eat lots of butter, takes cod liver oil, drinks kombucha, eats grass-fed meats, and all that is nourishing. This journey has opened me up to a new world filled with the wisdom of generations before me. I want to try these out-of-the-ordinary old-fashioned recipes and make them into my modern nourishment – making real food from real things in real time. I am also getting back to the basics with what we use in our everyday life, making our home as unprocessed as possible.

I remember as a young child ordering chocolate mousse at every restaurant that had it. It almost became a tradition to me. But in the past few years, I have seen this delicious dessert show up less and less on menus – which prompted me to want to make it at home. Plus, I thought, I could make it at home with nutrient-dense ingredients that will not only nourish my body but also hit that sweet spot! This recipe for Real Food Milk Chocolate Mousse is super easy and will yield you an incredibly fancy dessert that will “wow” all your guest this holiday season!

Fall is completely in the air – the air is crisp, the leaves are turning, and a freshness whips in with the wind.
