There are cookies that are better for your body, I don’t believe date heavy treats better than refined sugar choices. With Christmas over and people saying things like ‘time to be healthy again’I don’t believe Christmas or Christmas food is unhealthy. I don’t think treats made with large amounts of dates are a better choice. Diet food is even worse…
Cravings set in quite fast after Christmas different types of cravings, how we spend time thinking about these feelings cravings is much more important to me. Than the food that’s been thought of…in the circle of repeating thoughts low self esteem is somewhere in there, with holding on inside to stop or control feelings from being expressed.
I know now happiness is a choice and it comes from the inside out so in this confusion of food, feelings and cravings. Something like what I have made can be in the middle, while our internal life balances out. Enjoying low refined sugar sweetened food made from oats and not refined flour, I’ve used a some shop brought chocolate from a brand I like. Feeling bad about having cravings is a waste of time, that is why I learnt to make my own treats because its empowering…..
This recipe does take time but it is worth it! Very bite is Moorish, Delicious and Satisfying!
Oh and all cravings are gone…….. because all box’s are ticked.
2 Cups cashews – soaked 2 hours in water
1 Lemon – juiced (or 4 Tbsp)
3x Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1x tsp Paprika – I use Sweet Paprika
Pinch x salt
½ Cup Water (a little more if needed)
Blend cashews, lemon juice and water in a high speed blender. Use a tamper if you have one. (if you don’t have a powerful blender, you may need to pulse and add slightly more water). Add the rest of the ingredients and blend to a cream. Taste and add salt or more paprika to your preference.
Should taste great and even better if this is made the night before.
6 x Medium Tomatoes
3 Sun-dried Tomatoes depending on the depth of flavor
(soaked for 1 hour in warm water and keep that water in case you need to add for a runnier sauce)
1/8 Red Onion
1 Garlic Clove
1 x tablespoon Cup Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
3 x tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Blend into a sauce, check it’s to your liking. Then add or a just to your taste.
Crust – this makes enough for two pizza’s
1 cup of oats – if you need gluten free oats
1 cup of sunflower seeds
As much Oregano dried as you like
1x tablespoon of chai seeds (soaked in water 1/4 a cup until seeds have soaked up the water) should look like a gel
1x low teaspoon of baking soda
1x teaspoon of turmeric
salt and pepper
Begin by making oats / sunflower seeds with salt flour, running your oats through a food processor until a powder or flour. Add to your flour all the other ingredients and blend it should go into a moist dough. If not make more of the chai gel and add what is needed for the mixture to ball into a dough.
On cling film top and bottom, push into a pizza base shape and make 2 bases to a shape you like. Bake on baking paper on a low heat about 150 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes. Should be dry and holding together, allow cooling time. Then assemble your pizza together.
Put put the pizza together and basil leaves and any other toppings you enjoy.
This is the most delicious breakfast it is also quick and simple which is a contemporary twist
1 cup of oats – if I made this for one, I would use 1/3 of a cup of oats and 2/3 water
2 cups of water
1 ½ tsp of Maca Powder
Place into a pot the oats and water, on a low heat. Then the vanilla, I use a lot I grind the vanilla pod in skin and all. Then the Coconut butter, I use a lot but use your instincts and if you love the flavour like me. Your gut feeling will tell you there is enough. A drop of Coconut fat.
Let the oats soak up the liquids and stir a little. Turn off the heat, when the porridge is ready and stir in the Maca powder. Sometimes I put a drop of Coconut Fat on top and enjoy this amazing breakfast !!
Also when I am busy, I make the porridge the night before..
