How to treat yourself with RAW…
If you want to be the healthiest version of you, choosing foods in their RAW natural state is great habit to follow on a consistent basis.
And by RAW, I don’t mean plain ole fruits, veges and salads!
Though we all know how important they are, you can treat your ‘sweet tooth’ with RAW too…
Desserts made from raw, natural, plant based ingredients are ‘to die for’ when made right.
And once you try a treat like this made with love, you may just never want to satisfy your sweet tooth with anything nasty ever again!
You’d have to be living under a rock not to notice that raw desserts are everywhere.
For every delicious sugar-glazed pastry on the shelf, there’s a mesmerising, raw counterpart sitting in a trendy cafe, food display cabinet somewhere.
So, what’s the deal?
Well, firstly there’s no problem with grabbing yourself a chocolate brownie every once in a while.
But if you can get your hands on something just as good but with NO GUILT attached, why wouldn’t you do that!?
Why do people fall in love with RAW treats and never look back?
The key foundation of most raw treats is blended cashew nuts.
Straight from mother nature’s table and nothing processed, not only do they provide a super creamy base, they’re loaded with essential ‘good’ fats that help you to stay fuller for longer.
The other most common ingredients are raw cacao and pitted medjool dates.
These amazing ingredients are jam-packed with antioxidants and add texture and sweetness to the dessert and help to balance blood sugars rather than create a spike (like most sugary, floury treats) that cause you to hit the wall.
And when you add some raw coconut shavings or frozen locally sourced berries to the mix, you’re in for one very special treat!
There’s plenty of raw dessert recipes you can find online that are super easy to make at home, particularly if you have a ‘Vitamix’ and want to test your talents in the kitchen as a raw beauty queen!
