Let’s see what Santa will think of my raw X-Mas cookies made with lots of healthy superfoods like bee pollen, goji berries and coconut oil.
Have any of you seen the movie The Santa Claus? Isn't it so cute when the little girl leaves a glass of soy milk for Santa to not aggravate his lactose intolerance? Clever little girl she is...
This is my first holiday season spent gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. My intention is to keep going over the holidays as much as possible. My body is feeling pretty sparkly after the massive detox in the last few months.
The other day I was wandering through the endless shelves of beautifully wrapped festive candies at the shop. (I am a graphic designer so packaging always has a magic effect on me...) However this year it hasn’t tickled me to buy anything except ingredients to make my own goodies.
Somehow it’s incredibly reassuring and rewarding that this holiday season will be spent with a healthy digestion, good nights sleep, balanced hormones & a stable blood sugar level. I’ll happily exchange some glittery wrapped chocolates and lollies for that!
However, it's also the time to celebrate and enjoy life. That includes a little sweetness and Christmas traditions are part of it. Of course that includes something for Santa’s plate.
These raw cookies are super delicious, with a hint of Christmas flavour and are a definite healthy, nourishing alternative.
