One thing I hate about this time of year is the pressure to resist eating all the tasty seasonal food. I feel that all these infographics are lending themselves to a more unhealthy/restricted side of eating, rather than a balanced and happy outlook.
You might then look at this recipe which would appear in a classically ‘clean eating‘ or ‘healthy eating‘ feed and think that I’m being somewhat hypocritical! However, let me explain, I’m making the most of all the delicious plump dates around this time of year, mega boxes of nuts, seasonal spices and chocolate. You don’t need to eat these instead of a mince pie, you can have a mince pie, handful of celebrations AND these, or is that just me?
I’m very much a creature of habit and my favourite pastime’s is snacking, which is why these tasty bites of goodness rock my little world. I’ve made a chocolate version and festive spice version, which should hopefully please everyone, you can use the same base to save washing up/hassle.
