No-Sugar Super Treats

Comforting someone in need takes many forms. Sometimes the need isn’t clearly apparent and typical communication isn’t an option. This is often the case when a child is on the autism spectrum. I work closely with families on the spectrum and have presented cooking classes at the annual Autism One Conference for years. Over the past decade, the conference’s dietary focus has expanded from simple gluten-free, casein-free foods (GFCF) and the specific carbohydrate diet (SCD) to striving to understand and meet the complicated needs of each specific child. The parents’ tireless efforts to help their children never cease to impress and inspire me. After a long, exhausting day of cooking and presenting at last year’s Autism One Conference, I ran into a mom and her son in a hallway. I had watched this boy grow up over the years. Now in an adult body, he was still unable to communicate in a traditional manner. Travel and the unfamiliar surroundings were taking a toll and he was agitated and hungry. His diet was restricted to soft GFCF foods as he was healing from a difficult seizure during which he had bitten his tongue. My fatigue did not compare to what this family was experiencing. Returning to the family’s hotel room with food, I prayed that it would be comforting, nourishing and welcomed by the young man. Tiny steps, one bite at a time—and comfort was restored. The next day, he was peaceful. He kissed my cheek, the ultimate gift from a young person grateful for true comfort food. These treats are naturally sweet without refined sugar. Nutrient-dense, they promote wellness and they help bring comfort.
