This Paleo Berry Cobbler is the perfect balance of sweet and tart and is completely sugar-free!
I created this Paleo Berry Cobbler specifically to remember my dad.
My dad’s favorite pie growing up was blueberry pie. I have memories of my aunt baking homemade blueberry pies for my dad – usually around his birthday.
My dad and I would be so excited! We loved to have little slices of the pie throughout the week for dessert, and between him and me…the pie would disappear.
This Paleo Berry Cobbler is now Paleo-approved and still brings me back to those evenings spent with my dad – enjoying a freshly baked blueberry pie.
Food Retains History
Did you know you have food memories?
It’s a real thing!
The taste, smell, and texture of food brings back memories of not only eating the food but also of the context of where, when, and with whom.
Food will trigger deep memories, emotions, and internal states of the mind and body.
Now you know why every Thanksgiving you crave your grandma’s pumpkin pie, or whenever you get sick as an adult you crave those silly, simple things your mom used to do for you when you were a child.
