I know that tacos are originally for lunch and dinner, but these are soft breakfast tacos-not spicy, no vegetables, just a sweet, unique delight of its own. These are best eaten warm, because they are more sturdy and bendable. At the bottom you'll notice I have a candida friendly option for the sweetener for any of you that might be avoiding any foods containing sugar. Also, since this recipe calls for buckwheat, you can indulge in this food without feeling crumby, because buckwheat is a fruit seed, not a starch, and it's easier to digest too! If you seriously have any questions on what to eat with a certain temporary diet, ask me about the delicious options you have. They are out there, I know it may seem like there isn't, but after fixing so many special foods, there's more options than you probably realize.
I remember long ago my mom and I felt strongly about eating the easiest to digest and sugar free foods to heal ourselves, and an other way to put it would be purify ourselves (it's just a more positive term that I am recently attached to.) I want to tell you about the importance of purifying your heart, mind, body, and spirit. So basically, to purify means to become clean, to clear or purge, and to free yourself from something that may be holding you back (like guilt). Maybe a big part of becoming healthier is to forgive someone, and forget about that grudge your'e holding on to so tightly, deeply accepting yourself and your circumstance, and taking action and doing everything you can to change it. Honestly, taking sometime to do some soul searching to improve any of these aspects, and even in small amounts at a time can make a big difference. Try it out, it can change your life as it did for me.
Anyways, back to what I was saying, so my mom and I were scrambling for any tasty, sugar free, and the easiest to digest recipes we could find. We didn't know what to look for, where to go, or anything that was really going to heal ourselves. It was so long ago, but I can still remember that we fried up some zucchini and squash and poured tomato sauce all over it and for an other meal, we would eat brown rice and broccoli with very little seasonings for flavor. When we were devastatingly hungry for a dessert type of food, we made coconut flour pancakes with zero sweetener, and would slather peanut butter on top, and the food didn't taste that good at all. So if you are at that stage and you need ideas, PLEASE ask, Iv'e been though it and I know exactly what to do--which foods, sweeteners, and healing properties to use, and so you don't go berserk, what fruits to occasionally eat too.
These chocolate tacos worked magic for me as I seeped in a whole cup of buckwheat flour, and to make the colors dance, I added some cacao powder. If any of you aren't big fans of chocolate, you could probably add in some carob power for an eye popping color instead. You know, you don't have to add any chocolate at all, it just gives it a more eye griping color to gaze at. I am kind-of a color fanatic with fashion and foods--it's weird, I know. I have been a color coordinator since birth, well, maybe not, but after I took a fashion strategies class my sophomore year in high school, I realized that life is full of style. Color combining is like the melodies of your spirit and creativity of your mind. When it comes to fashion, two neutrals and regular color like pink or green can change an ordinary outfit into a completely wonderful statement of your inner self. The same goes for food, because you can change the entire look of a dish with a garnish, drizzles, etc., so there is a feast for your eyes to explore.
