Chocolate Avocado Pudding

chocolate avocado pudding (1 of 1)Intuitive eating does not mean that I no longer eat treats.  It simply means that when I do choose to eat them I want them to be not just yummy but healthy(ish) too.

There are many times I have used food for comfort in my life.  This recipe was inspired by my need for comfort plus my desire to make healthier choices.

In recent months I have become more aware of when I am eating out of a need to soothe myself.  That awareness has made it easier to not let food be my go-to for dealing with my emotions.  Until I could get there this pudding was an option that didn’t bring me down the guilt rabbit hole.

Ingredients:

1 Avocado, ripe – flesh only
1 Tbs. Nut butter
1 Tbs. Cocoa powder
Vanilla stevia, to taste
Coconut milk or milk alternative

Place the first 4 ingredients in a blender or food processor and slowly add a splash at a time of milk and blend until desired consistency.  Enjoy!

Creamy Cucumbers

Creamy Cukes (1 of 1)I have created many recipes over the years, and I will say they were yummy, but they came from a place of restriction and deprivation.  I spent so many years not eating this or that that I wanted to start sharing new recipes from a place of pure love for food and not restriction.  This is my first recipe from that mind-set.

Ingredients:

1      English cucumber, sliced or diced
1/2   cup sour cream
1/2   teaspoon onion salt (I used Trader Joe’s brand)
1/2   teaspoon dried or fresh dill
1/8   tsp salt

Place all ingredients together in a bowl and mix well.  Enjoy!
