THREE INGREDIENTS FOR MY NOT SO NAUGHTY SWEET TREAT

Sometimes a girl just needs something sweet. After a long day of teaching and coaching there is nothing like a bit of comfort food to soften the edges and wrap you up in some sweet love. I am not perfect. I’ll eat ‘no-no’ foods every now and then if I really feel like it. But I don’t beat myself up over it nor do I feel like I’ve broken some sort of secret pact to myself. Being healthy is about balance.
Mostly though, if I can satiate and satisfy myself and still do so in a healthy way, then I actually feel a little smug. Do you know what I mean? Like I outsmarted the junk food that is always trying to tempt us to eat their sugar laden crap.
There is nothing smart about it, though. Eating healthily and still enjoying yourself is easy once you know what to look out for. So I’m going to share my fool-proof sweet treat. That most definitely isn’t naughty. All you need is three simple ingredients
  • Tahini
  • Raw honey/maple syrup
  • Cacao
(p.s this is NOT my favourite brand of tahini – I prefer Carwari {organic, unhulled and not broken with cheap oil} but this is all left in the shops.
Simply mix up 1-2 tablespoons of tahini with 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of cacao. You can play around with the measurements here to taste.
What you are left with is your own natural homemade nutella.
I then enjoy this – a nice big dollop – over oven-roasted (pre-activated) nuts and coconut flakes. Sometimes I add in goji berries. Other times, straight off the spoon.
It’s decadent. Moorish. Feels so naughty. But isn’t… oh no!
A hot tea (english breakfast with a teaspoon of coconut oil and a dash of raw milk soothes the soul) and some sweetness can work wonders in the afternoon. It just doesn’t need to be crappy refined sugars and junk that works as an anti-nutrient.
Eat and enjoy. Saha to you.
Signing off with an exhale.
Pause. Listen. Live.
