I highly recommend having some super healthy and delicious comfort food in the freezer for those moments when you “want” a little something.. Having it frozen, means you have to go through a small process before you eat it, which gets you either more focused on the “treat” feeling or the ” I don’t really need it right now” experience.. There’s something about this ritual, in fact any ritual which gives you time to be more intentional.
My latest experiment involving a mix of my favourite raw cheescake filling mixed with cooked pumpkin to produce a really authentic PUMPKIN PIE flavour and texture without any sugar, wheat, eggs or dairy.. instead it’s a high protein, nerve soothing, fully satisfying superfood snack.. Cut it up and store in the freezer for when you want a little comfort food treat.
1 1/2 cups pitted dates
1 1/2 cups walnuts
1/2 cup coconut chips
1/8th tsp sea salt
Process in food processor till sticking together but still a bit chunky. Spread in an oiled dish taking up the side a bit to hold the filling.
2 cups dry cashew nuts soaked overnight
1 1/2 cups roasted pumpkin
1/2 cup dry dates soaked in hot water till soft
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tsp cinnamon (organic, it’s worth getting good, medicinal quality spices)
1/4 tsp allspice (optional)
1/4 tsp sea salt
Process all ingredients and pour into pie crust.
Put in the fridge until set and serve with your favourite raw ice cream or cashew or coconut cream.
What’s your favourite comfort food at the moment.. and maybe we can find and share a healthy version of it here.. play around with a few adaptations without losing the yumminess of it.. that could be fun..
