If you’re looking for an easy, yet delicious dessert recipe, look no further! This delicious dessert can be prepared in a matter of minutes and only contains two ingredients – organic strawberries and organic palm sugar! Strawberries dipped in Coconut Palm Sugar. Both of these ingredients are fantastic on their own; combining them is a recipe for success!
This recipe is particularly useful for my patients that are in recovery for an eating disorder, since it doesn’t require much time in the kitchen…a place that can cause anxiety for those in early recovery.
As we discussed in an earlier blog post, organic coconut palm sugar has many health benefits, including:
- Palm sugar is non-GMO, 100% organic, and unrefined
- Palm sugar is rich in vitamins and amino acids
- Palm sugar has a low glycemic index
Strawberries are an antioxidant-rich food; they are ranked the 4th best fruit in terms of antioxidant capacity. As we talked about in my article about premature aging, antioxidants are a key element in slowing down the aging process. Antioxidant-rich foods also help in replenishing vitamins and minerals within the body, supporting the immune system, improving mental function, and restoring energy. These are all very common issues that my patients experience upon entering treatment for their eating disorder.
Eat Clean, Commit to be Fit, and Live Healthy! And of course….Bon Appetit!
