Christmas Gift Recipes, Gluten Free Tiffin And Pecan Crumble Cookies

As I’ve got older I’ve definitely become less obsessed with presents and the “stuff” that comes with Christmas. It’s much more about quality time with family, catching up with friends, long wintery walks, cosy Christmas films and spending a lot of time in the kitchen. I still love the gift giving part of it and really like to take my time and think about what that person would really love.

Gluten Free Carrot Cake

You honestly won’t notice the difference between this delicious gluten free healthy carrot cake to your standard shop bought sugar laden carrot cake. I have such a sweet tooth and this certainly satisfied it even though it only contains coconut palm sugar as the sweetner which is a great alternative to normal sugar as it has a lower glycemic index so won’t make your blood sugar spike.

My Flour-Free Carrot, Almond and Pistachio Cake!

I love reading health and fitness magazines- obviously! But I do sometimes find it really funny when they are quite contradicting from week to week or even page to page! One page will have an article on how you shouldn’t eat low fat products with sweeteners then you turn over a couple of pages and there’s a huge advert for the newest muller light yogurt!

However, you have to take it all like a pinch of salt, choose the information you believe wisely and don’t take things you read in magazines to be the absolute truth just because they are printed on a beautifully designed page!
