Why does this recipe include ingredients that are not SANE?
This recipe contains apples, which fall into the ‘other fruits’ category on the SANE spectrum. This means they are neither SANE nor inSANE, and can be enjoyed in small quantities – these are just not items that we go out of our way to consume. i.e.: SANE does not encourage eating 10+ servings of apples per day.
The purpose of recipes such as this one is to be delicious and prevent deprivation, which can be helpful in preventing us from turning to truly inSANE items. A small portion of apples accompanied with whole food fats will not derail any hormonal healing efforts.
If you want to make a SANEr version of this recipe, try experimenting with swapping the apples for a low fructose fruit, or combination of low fructose fruits. Some examples include peaches, strawberry & rhubarb. Or perhaps experiment by swapping some of the apples for chayote, which would count as a non starchy vegetable.
