Do you really need a good reason to eat some Hot Cross Buns on Good Friday?
The only tragic tune that never gets heard during the festive loud merry making during Christmas dining is the fact that the protagonist of the Christmas main dish – the turkey – had been a sad victim of lost identity.
The present tense doesn’t need to be a tense one if you could eat a present. Confused? That was the objective actually – to ask you how would you feel if you could eat a present and move into future with a happy tummy? This Christmas you can try to find out which of the presents you will receive are edible, which are wearable and which are merely for personal or home use. Why not gift a loved one the joy of receiving a gift which could actually be eaten too?
Winter can be difficult and its better to wrap up before venturing out. But once you are back home inside the warmth and comfort of your home, head to the kitchen to wrap up some salmon, green and root vegetables instead. Heat up your oven to set the stage warm and ready for the wrapped up ingredients to start their exchange of flavored pleasantries.
What are the similarities between the Rolling Stones and some rolling scones, one may wonder.
Weekdays are about being in routine and stay disciplined. Because after all the treats over the weekend, it’s about bringing a balance to your diet. As you know, on a good day, I eat 5 small meals, two of which are snacks. Grabbing a cookie or biscuit with a cup of tea is convenient but I prefer to have something more fulfilling and nutritious. Muesli is one of my favourite healthy mixes. I love it for breakfast mixed with some fresh berries and greek yogurt, but baking with muesli is brilliant! With its mix of sunflower seeds, raisins, dates, almonds, walnuts and grains… it makes a perfect blend of crunchy and sweet yet healthy treat.
So nice it would have been if I could bake my cake and have it all the time and all my life. Sadly due to soaring calories, such culinary cake fantasies will have to remain chimerical while I search for a healthy option to quench my cakey cravings. So make way please while we roll the drums for gluten free banana loafs – to set us free from the sinful calorie intakes but still shackling us to the sweet little sensations.
Two bananas, one loaf, zero gluten – Let’s devour this!
