View Full Version : Need a raw substitute
05-30-2006, 11:38 PM
I'm going through some heavy duty emotional healing, and when it's really bad, I want a personal pan pizza. It's easy to eat, soft, filling, and just fills that hole in my being so very nicely. Times like this, a salad or something healthy just won't do - because raw/healthy food feels different in my body/stomach.
What would be a super easy substitute that will fill that hole?

Mendhigirl - I know exactly how you feel. However, I must say one of the most important issues I have had to face since going raw are my FEELINGS. We have to face them and not burry them with food. I am currently searching OTHER ways to quell my emotions. Deep breathing in a quiet place or outside works well. In fact just getting outside in general works. It is hard and I am not doing too well with it... but I am assuming that in time it will get easier. But maybe just try and start a new habit of actually feeling and examaning your emotions before you stuff them down with food. Hope this helps. Emotional detox isn't a lot of fun... but it is a great event in terms of learning about yourself and growing.

I can tell you how to make raw pizza, but that will not fill that hole, only going through the emotional detox will fill that hole, once and for all.
I'd take a portabello mushroom cap, add some sliced or chopped tomatoes, some fresh basil, sliced mushrooms, olives, a dash of oregano, onion, and what ever else you like and warm in the dehydrator or eat fresh, I have tons of pizza reicpes all very compliated taking days to make the sun dried tomatoes and the sauces, cheese, and sausage, but that is an entire book. LOL

i definately agree that food can't be an escape for emotional things. . . but i do also appreciate the desire for delicious "comfort food". . . and when I want something cozy and satisfying to nourish my body and soul, I love banana ice cream (mint-carob or vanilla-pecan are my favorites), or a bowl of angel-hair zucchini topped with a raw marinara sauce or black olives and celtic sea salt, or try mixing carob with spirulina and raw honey for a very nutritious "chocolately" treat.
there are raw pizza recipes as well. . . as mentioned in previous posts
on a side note, my favorite thing to assist with emotional detoxing is an early morning brisk walk before the rest of the world wakes up, when everything is quiet and the lilacs are fragrant. . . and my mind can freely wrap around anything it wants and the morning air clears and invigorates. . . .
