Moist, delicious and made with unprocessed ingredients, these Pumpkin Cookies are a great snack for those who want something sweet and wholesome. The spices go so well with the pumpkin flavour. Almond flour is a healthier alternative to regular wheat flour as it contains protein and healthy oils. These cookies are gluten-free, refined sugar-free and dairy-free if you use coconut oil instead of butter. For sugar-free, use xylitol or stevia. Hope you like them!
These Turkey Meatballs are really flavour-some, quick to make and very healthy. They’re gluten-free and dairy-free. I haven’t added egg as I find that the mixture sticks together enough without it and eating two or more proteins together is harder to digest so I prefer to keep it simple but add an egg if you prefer. You could also add ½ a cup of gluten-free breadcrumbs or almond flour for that texture if you wish. Turkey is a healthy protein. Free-range turkey is best if you can find it. Spinach contains extra nutrients and you can’t really tell it’s in there. Great for fussy eaters. Hope you enjoy!
This Chocolate Almond Butter Slice reminds me of caramel slice but without all the usual unhealthy ingredients. It’s also gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free. Almond butter is so creamy and delicious making it a great ingredient in a slice. If you don’t have almond butter on hand, you could substitute peanut butter or perhaps another nut or seed butter. This is a thin slice but a little goes a long way. You could double the recipe to make a thicker slice.
In our previous posts, we’ve discussed the importance of a holistic approach to health and wellness. As you know, there are many practices you need to adopt in your lifestyle apart from healthy eating and exercising to attain a state of complete wellness. One of them is minimizing your exposure to toxins in the environment. Unfortunately, we live in a sea of toxins today. Everyone is exposed to chemicals even in the most common products or places you come across every day. These can harm your health in ways you wouldn’t imagine.
One widely found substance, but certainly unseen to the eye, is BPA, or bisphenol A. This is a chemical that we have been warned about in recent years. Following numerous studies, health experts strongly advise that you completely avoid contact and exposure to BPA due to its dangers to health.
This banana ice cream doesn’t require any time-consuming beating or costly ice cream machines! It also doesn’t contain any dairy so it’s a wonderful treat for all the dairy intolerant folk out there who miss out when it comes to ice cream. Surprisingly it tastes like real banana ice cream too! With different variation options, there’s a flavour everyone will like. Make sure to use ripe bananas, even ones going brown, for a sweeter, creamier ice cream. The addition of almond butter adds some healthy fats and nutrients while the coconut cream makes it creamier. I don’t add sweeteners because bananas have a high sugar content.
