What is the best way to stop thermal bridging between my ICF block construction walls and my footing?

An Uninsulated footing under ICF block construction walls allows thermal bridging into the concrete core of the wall allowing energy stored in the thermal mass to bleed into the soil below. This is one of the problems with building ICF on a traditional concrete strip foundation. Is there any way to stop this advantage for ICF construction from literally flowing away?
