I totally get that Christmas is a time of indulgence for all of us and I am by no means suggesting you overhaul your whole Christmas tradition and make it a ‘healthy’ Christmas because Christmas isn’t unhealthy, it’s a time to celebrate with your loved ones and share traditions, gifts and food. It’s not a time to be worrying about calories. Then again I don’t think any day is a day to worry about calories! That said, you can include a few things that are a little lighter to mix things up, lighter but still super delicious and this little collection ticks those boxes big time. From gluten free, to dairy free, to just wholesome there’s something for everyone,
These prawns are the best! They’re so full of flavour and, thanks to the chickpea flour coating, are crispy and golden. The spicy salt seasoning makes them super delicious. Just writing about them makes me want to eat them again…
This salad is so pretty and full of flavour. it combines a couple of my favourite things… hummus and cauliflower. I’ve been really into loading roasted cauliflower onto hummus lately and then scooping it all up with some flat bread… or just a fork. But I felt I could make the whole thing look less beige. So now we have this.
Let the Christmas ‘baking’ continue! So there’s probably some sort of copyright problem with me calling these Bounty balls. But they are so reminiscent of a bounty, and it used to be my favourite chocolate bar as a kid so that’s a huge compliment. These little chocolates are ridiculous easy to make and way healthier than the original.
These taste just like gingerbread but they’re waaaay better for you. Why gingerbread because: It’s Christmas this month! This month! That’s so soon. I LOVE Christmas, I love the time spent with family friends, how everyone is in a good mood, Mariah Carey’s Christmas album playing on repeat (haha, no shame)… and the food.
I haven’t been as regular on the blog posts this last week or two… but with good reason. Make that good reasons. One of which is that, well Christmas is just a busy time isn’t it? I’ve got family visiting, weddings on, music festivals and job quitting going on.
