Raw Chocolate Banana Pie & Reflexology
Another weekend behind and no babe. Apparently there are things
you can do to speed along the process - squats, spicy foods,
acupuncture, reflexology, the list goes on. I am a little hesitant to
speed things along because in truth, I am soaking up these 'calm
before the storm' moments/days.
Yesterday, however, Sam and I went for reflexology.
I had been once before but Sam was not sure what to expect. He
happened to get a pretty aggressive dude who pressed relentlessly
on his tender spots. Sam's ego was crumbling right before my eyes,
it was entertaining to watch as I soaked up my gentle foot massage.
Reflexology is really cool, people. Check out this chart below.
It can be insightful to learn what parts of your body are out of balance.
And if you already know, you will definitely know by how tender these
points are in your feet. Pressing on these points can also support your
body in healing specific areas.
Apparently, the more you do it, the better health you will be.
Sure, I am gullible and am also aware that businesses thrive
off that statement, but I totally believe it. 100%.
Does anyone else think it's weird that I'm writing about feet
and pie in the same blog
This recipe, I made up on my own. Yup, all by myself! Somebody,
give me a sticker shaped as a star. Ok truthfully, it has been adapted from
about 10 recipes I googled. Does that still get the sticker?
Raw Chocolate Banana Pie
2 cups nut meal/flour (I used walnuts)
1 cup pitted dates (medjool prob works best, but I used pitted dates soaked in boiled water for 10min)
1/4 tsp sea salt
Blend together in a food processor and press into a 9" pie plate
2 very ripe avocados
1 very ripe banana
1/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup carob powder
4 tbsp cacao powder
1 tbsp vanilla
1.5 tbsp coconut oil
Blend all these together in a food processor until you get an ultra smooth consistency. Pour over the crust and spread evenly with a spatula.
Slice a second banana and place them side by side around the edge of the pie - pretty!
Put the pie in the freezer for a few hours or overnight.
Serve frozen - so so good!
That is all, goodbye!
