Hello all – I’ve been in New Zealand enjoying some family and vacation time, which is why things have been a little quiet on the blog-front in the last couple weeks. I hope everyone, whether in warm or wintry climes, has been well!
Here’s a delicious recipe I made whilst at home that is perfectly sweetened with the natural sugars of orange, carrot and a small amount of raw honey. Remember the importance of reducing your sugar intake! It may feel tricky at first, but expect less cravings, irritability and weight-gain, and more stabilized moods, better sleeps and an overall more positive outlook. Read more in my sugar blog here.
