Ingredients:

For the Filling –

2 large Granny Smith Apples (about 1 lb), peeled, cored & quartered
1 large carrot (add more carrots and/or apples if they are small)
1/2 cup or more shredded coconut
3 Tablespoons cashew butter
1/3 cup crushed or finely ground pecans, raw or toasted
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar
1 teaspoon 100% vanilla extract
2 tsp lemon juice and zest of one medium lemon
2 teaspoons apple juice
pinch of salt

For the Coating –
1/2 cup coconut butter, melted
2 tablespoons unrefined/cold pressed coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon 100% vanilla extract
zest of one medium sized lemon
coconut nectar
2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar

Grate the prepared apples and carrots.
Combine and squeeze the mixture a few times.
Transfer to a fine mesh strainer and press out as much juice as you can.
Set the juice aside and transfer the pulp into a medium sized bowl.
Add lemon zest to the bowl.
Add in coconut, cashew butter, pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg, coconut palm sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, apple juice, and salt.
Combine well, using hands. Form into a ball.
Roll into 10 golf-ball sized balls. If too dry, add more juice. If too wet, add more coconut.

Add a lollipop or popsicle stick if making cake pops, skip this step if you are making cake balls.
Freeze for 45 minutes, or until firm.

Next, melt coconut butter and coconut oil until just melted. Combine in short drinking glass with vanilla, lemon zest, coconut nectar, and coconut palm sugar.

Dip each cake ball in the coating. Let the excess coating drip off.
Stir coating mixture occasionally. Coating should harden.
Place each cake pop (stick side down) into a section of the egg carton.
Once all cake pops are dipped, dip each cake pop a second time. Let coating harden, transfer to a container, store in fridge.

Eating Disorder Pro Podcast: Clean Eating & Eating Disorder Recovery with Amber Romaniuk

Amber Romaniuk Eating Disorder Recovery

Join us on WEDNESDAY January 1 at 7:30 pm EST as we welcome Amber Romaniuk to the show. We’ll be having an inspiring discussion about Amber’s struggles with emotional eating and food addiction and her recovery journey. Amber is the founder of Nourish This Life and is a R.H.N. Holistic Nutritionist graduate from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. Additionally, she is the author of a brand new cookbook “Amber Approved Gluten, Dairy, and Sugar-free Recipes“.

This episode is especially important if you suffer from obesity or an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, or binge eating disorder. You can tune in HERE.

Some background info about our guest:

“Amber Romaniuk, founder of Nourish This Life, Calgary, Alberta, is an R.H.N. Holistic Nutritionist graduate from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. She offers a unique edge of understanding for supporting individualized plans and nutritional coaching to clients suffering from a spectrum of imbalances including: digestive, hormonal and adrenal imbalances, inflammation, stress, enzyme deficiency, food allergy/sensitivity and blood sugar imbalances.

She also has a deep personal awareness of emotional, compulsive, and binge eating as well as an incredible depth of knowledge regarding the connection between the physical and psychological imbalances these have on the body, mind and soul.

Amber is also involved in public speaking to educate those interested on how to take the steps involved to shift to a healthier lifestyle.

Amber is also a Advisory Council & founding member of the Calgary Holistic Chamber of Commerce, part of BNI Integrity, and a part of the Evolutionary Business Institute. She is writing her first cookbook titled “Amber Approved: Gluten, Sugar & Dairy-Free Recipes to Nourish This Life” was released on December 10th with all dairy, sugar and gluten-free recipes.

With a huge passion for cooking and creating new allergen-free recipes, both for her website and clients, she can help support your nutritional needs. There is a way to replace or transform any refined food or recipe into a cleaner, healthier, whole-foods creation that will satisfy and nourish the taste buds, appetite and soul, and Amber can teach you how.

Striving to provide you with a supportive, professional, and positive environment, when you Nourish This Life the seed of a trusting relationship can be planted to grow and flourish. Along with plenty of suggestions for creative meal plans and nourishing food, Amber knows the best way to support your shift to a healthier whole-foods lifestyle and set you up for success is by education, encouragement, and adding variety, rather than deprivation or strict diets.

For Amber, it’s about thoroughly understanding why you have been choosing certain habits and living the lifestyle you have been living. It’s her goal to support you by working toward shifting these habits, over time, to a state of balance that will change your life for the better. She is extremely excited to be part of such a talented team of practitioners and to start her practice at the Mount Royal Health Center. 

Amber’s Personal Story

Amber brings much life experience to her work. She knows first-hand how poor-quality food choices and using food to cope with emotions can create many different imbalances in the body and mind. Over a span of six years, Amber began taking responsibility for her health and became aware of how foods impacted her on a mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual level. She overcame a lack of self-love and emotional eating while learning how to listen to her body as well as love and nourish it the way it deserved in order to shift to a more balanced state.

Amber has developed a strong interest in learning about the connection between nutrient dense foods and the positive impact they have on supporting the body as a whole.

Every person is unique and always changing and, therefore, will require different nutritional and lifestyle needs to support balance and optimal health on an ongoing basis.

You may think: Where do I start? I don’t know what to do first. I don’t know what a chia seed is, or I love sugar too much to ever think of eliminating it from my diet.

It may seem too difficult or intimidating.

Amber started out in that space too, and she knows that through time, learning, and creating a space to be open to trying new foods, it’s totally possible. Anything is.”

Eating Disorder Pro Podcast: The Dark Side of Fat Loss with Sean Croxton [Encore Presentation]

Sean Croxton Dark side of fat loss

Join us on FRIDAY December 6 at 12:00 pm EST for a special encore presentation with our interview with Sean Croxton, founder of Underground Wellness and author of The Dark Side of Fat Loss. We had a great discussion about  the complete code of conduct for healthy living and nutrition so that you can be the healthiest, fittest version of yourself, free of excess fat, depression, anxiety, sweet cravings, sleep issues, low libido and the signs and symptoms of common degenerative diseases!

This episode is especially important if you suffer from a obesity or an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, or binge eating disorder. You can tune in HERE.

Check out my review of the Dark Side of Fat Loss HERE.

A bit of background info about Sean Croxton:

“The word most often used to describe Sean is PASSIONate! This passion comes from a lifelong love of fitness and health, and a dream to revolutionize the way THE WORLD thinks about health. Recognizing the failures of health care, Sean promotes the concept of self care. In order to regain and/or maintain superb health, we must become more responsible for ourselves.

After graduating from San Diego State University in 2001 with a Bachelor’s in Kinesiology (emph: fitness, nutrition, and health), Sean began his journey as a certified personal trainer. Despite his extensive education in health, he was met with much failure as clients got heavier and sicker. Client programs consisted of endless cardio and the horrific Food Guide Pyramid. Rather than accept defeat, Sean took his failures as an opportunity for growth. He has since spent thousands of hours educating himself on the many truths that eluded him throughout his formal education, often joking that he got his Master’s from Amazon.com.”

Body Dysmorphia and Anorexia

Body Dysmorphic Disorder treatment

Systems theory tells us that in order to solve a problem we have to use the right set of assumptions. Further, it tells us that if we use the wrong assumptions, the problem will continue to get worse. Suffice it to say, the underlying assumptions of those suffering with eating disorders are incorrect. One good example is the role that body dysmorphia plays in driving disordered eating – Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is not the same thing. I should point out that not all individuals that suffer from Anorexia suffer from body dysmorphia, but many do.

The underlying assumptions of those Anorexics suffering from body dysmorphia include:

  • Imagined defects in appearance. “My thighs are fat.” Or  “My belly sticks out too much.” (In an individual weighing 70 pounds)
  • Preoccupation with weight – I weigh too much. I would be more attractive if I lost weight. No one can respect me if my weight goes over 100 pounds.
  • Obsessive compulsive behavioral patterns – “I must try on every pair of jeans to make sure that they still fit.”
  • Social Isolation – “I know when they look at me, they think I’m fat. It’s better if I just avoid them.”

Obviously these are all incorrect underlying assumptions that will drive more disordered eating. If you have had a patient or a family member with anorexia, then you probably know how useless it is to try and convince the sufferer that the assumptions are wrong. They will assume that you are trying to fool them or trick them into changing so that they will be “fat” like you.  I find that it works better to focus upon behavior and the medical necessity of eating.  It also helps if they have people depending upon them to be well. Family support, instead of judgment is critical.

On my blogtalk radio show The Eating Disorder Pro, which airs every Wednesday at 7:30 pm EST and comes to you from Cincinnati, Ohio, my guest Brian Cuban, talked about his book  Shattered Image.  On December 11, Mr. Cuban will describe what it is like to suffer from BDD from the male perspective. His experiences, especially his recovery is inspirational, so be sure to tune in if you are traveling that road yourself. What was so interesting is the fact that his false underlying assumptions were not very different from what we think of as a female perspective when it comes to body image. Like many people with eating disorders, he had some pretty painful experiences as a child, not the least of which was a weight problem along with a mom that fat-shamed him. Ouch! He was also the victim of bullying.  Obviously, this was a recipe for disaster.

Check out Brian Cuban’s book to get a good sense of the incorrect underlying assumptions and how he eventually dismantled them for his own recovery. Be sure to tune in on WEDNESDAY December 11 at 7:30 pm.
