I don’t know about you, but when my sugar levels hit rock bottom one too many times I start hallucinating. Namely, visions of glutinous rice treats like these Ondeh-ondeh start to haunt me. I suppose I should count myself lucky that my cravings for sweet treats like kuihs and daifuku tend to originate from the Asian region and are more likely to be traditionally devoid of animal ingredients.
Recently, I’ve tried incorporating more raw foods like salads into my diet, just to see if there was a way to sneak them in for someone of Vata disposition. I’ve failed miserably to do so with lethargy, insomnia woes and indigestion, all classic Vata imbalance symptoms nipping at my heels the past week. Perhaps these symptoms ballooned into a full out desire for these familiar warm sweet treats that remind me of childhood?
