There's nothing worse than kicking off your clean diet, healthy lifestyle and having to give up all-things-crappy and thinking that you are no longer allowed to have anything that actually satisfies you. This is at least the biggest myth that I've found when I speak to people about healthy living: they assume that it means no good food.
Can I just take a brief moment and tell you that I'm about to rock your world?! My raw cranberry cheesecake is so unbelievably tasty and satisfying and I promise will make you re-think those words 'diet' and 'healthy' living. This raw cake means no baking, which is why it nourishes your body!
When we heat our foods, we break down the nutrients in the things we eat, rendering them not-as-good for us. Food is a living thing, our bodies are living things, so when we kill our food (i.e. heating it) we are essentially putting dead nutrients into our body. This cake has all things living, bursting with essential vitamins and nutrients and will satisfy any sweet tooth! It is full of essential fats both from the sunflower seeds and the coconut oil as well as vitamin C from the lemon and helps to reduce inflammation from the honey plus cider vinegar, which is used in the topping. Just remember, this is a dessert so it's not to be eaten every day! But it is a wonderful alternative to your cakes you buy at the shop that have been loaded with salt, sugar, preservatives and sometimes chemicals!
To activate your nuts, making them easier to digest in your body and releasing more nutrients I'd recommend soaking them overnight. If you'd like to dehydrate them to make them crunchy again that's fine, however it's not totally needed (I do recommend soaking them though).
All that's left is "Enjoy!"
