evepostappleOnce upon a time, there was a woman named Eve, who, unable to resist the luring temptation of a fragrant orchard, took a bite of forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Perhaps Eve was bored. Perhaps she was ovulating and had a desperate craving for something sweet. Perhaps life in the little garden was becoming stressful or claustrophobic. Perhaps she felt out of control or lacked passion in her life and in order to numb her emotions or soothe herself from Adam's lack of attention or his ambivalence in starting a family, she chose to indulge. Perhaps Eve was an emotional eater. But as Eve soon discovered, neither the bite, nor the whole fruit fulfilled her as she had hoped. Not only did she realize she was naked but that she had contempt for the way she looked. Perhaps Eve suffered with body dismorphia. Eve tried to stop eating the forbidden fruit and eventually avoided eating altogether but that didn't work and she ended up eating until she could no longer breathe. The point of this is that Eve lost her intuitive ability to nourish herself. She no longer had balance in her life and was willing to do any and everything to get that back.

Maybe Eve didn't exist. Maybe the stories that were told are not as important as the stories we tell ourselves.

This blog is dedicated to creating new stories based on the philosophies of whole body nutrition, self-love, intuition, fitness and yoga.

In my journey I have sought to uncover the knowledge and balance which have brought me to a greater awareness of health and this is what I wish to share with you.

    Zain’s Raw & Vegan Boston Cream Pie
I have created this very special recipe in honour of the City of Boston and the tragic events that occurred.  One of my close friends was running in the Marathon and after 17 hours waiting on pins and needles, I found out that not only was she ok but that she and several other athletes continued running after the race straight to the hospital to donate blood.  Isn’t that incredible?
This particular recipe is raw and vegan and was inspired by my best friend who also lives in Boston.  It is packed with delicious, bio-available nutrients and proteins and is a treat that is actually good for you.  As you create this pie, share it with those you love the most and be grateful for them in this moment because you never know what may happen in the next.
*Makes 2 large or 4 mini servings
*Note: this recipe is considered a treat or dessert due to it’s content of healthy fat.
Ingredients:
Pie
1 Scoop SUNWARRIOR Vanilla Protein
6-7  Medjool Dates (pitted)
1/2 Cup + 1 Tbsp Walnuts OR Almonds (soaked, I used sprouted nuts)
1-2 Tsp Maple Syrup
1/2 Tbsp Coconut Butter
Pinch Himalayan Crystal Salt OR Sea Salt
1/8 Tsp Cinnamon
Cream Filling
1 Tbsp Coconut Butter
1/4 Cup Cashews (soaked)
1 Tbsp Hot Water
1/8 Tsp Natural Vanilla Extract
1 Medjool Date
Raw Chocolate Topping
1/8 Cup Raw Cacao Powder
11/2 Tbsp Coconut Butter
Pinch Himalayan Crystal Salt (optional)
Directions:
1. Prepare Cream Filling by blending all ingredients together in a food processor until very smooth, refrigerate.
2. Prepare Pie Layer by blending all ingredients together in a food processor until quite smooth.
3. Once blended, use your hands to separate the blended ingredients into two parts.
4. Mould one part into a round pie shape, set aside.
5. Remove Cream Filling from fridge and pour on top of the first layer of pie then mould the second layer on top ensuring that the sides mesh together. *note you may want to wet your hands to make this happen.  I like to really work it into a beautiful round shape but you can create any shape that you want ie. square, a loaf etc.
6. Prepare Raw Chocolate Topping by lightly melting coconut butter then stirring in raw cacao powder and salt if using and drizzle over top of your pie.
7. You may refrigerate until ready to serve or serve right away.
