View Full Version : too scared to try rich raw desserts!
10-02-2008, 10:41 AM
Since I'm one of those folks who counts out their nuts at any given time at a meal, I've held off from making any raw desserts, on account of the extremely high fat and calorie content. I know there are many people here who say that raw calories and fat don't matter, but I am willing to bet that this is not so for a post-menopausal woman. I'm one of these, but I'm not overweight(just a little over-fat, despite a good training program and diet). Anyone else here avoid making or eating raw desserts for calorie/fat content control reasons? Some sound really yummy though. But you know, even before going raw, I was not a dessert maker, preferring if I wanted something in that department to just eat one square of extra-bittersweet chocolate and be done with it.

Oh my dear. DO NOT DEPRIVE YOURSELF! Endulge, Enjoy, EAT!
I'm living proof that illnesses have been healed - lifelong illnesses AND simply by eating and not worrying about calories and fats.
It's guilt free eating.

You know what I do...so that I don't deprive myself but I also don't binge on the fats...
I have those tiny pie tins that are from a children's catalog. They are like 3" tins...and I use those and 1/4 the recipe. This saves $ and then I can feel fine about eating it. :)
As my partner just said to me yesterday "I sure wouldn't miss desserts if I went raw...you make the best desserts!"

I don't "avoid" anything. I eat what I like and that's mostly fruit. LOVE fruit! If I feel to have something else, I have it. Life is too short to be scared of living.

I agree with veganforlife, eat and enjoy!
Alissa's fudge balls could be a nice raw replacement for the chocolate and they are very easy to make.
Do you have Alissa's book. In the testimony section there are women over 50 who have lost weight and healed themselves eating the raw dessets.
