This time of year many people are baking or making tasty little treats to gift or share with family for the festive season. It’s such a lovely thing to receive a handmade gift, something baked with love. That is, as long as it’s not filled with processed grains and sugars.
The festive season can be hard to avoid those foods that you have chosen to remove from your diet. For many people it takes an extra effort to resist. So receiving a girt made with real food ingredients shows the extra care and effort has been put into that gift. Here I have put together 10 recipes that would make great homemade gifts. Things I’d love to receive myself.
How are you all feeling now you have cut the sugar out? Its important to remember that your body will go through a detox when you cut out sugar and things may feel worse before they feel better. I looked at my bodies reactions when I cut it out and realised it was proof of the effect it had on me. How the sugar cravings heightened, it really did feel like a drug calling to me.
The benefits now are very noticeable for me and you will notice them too. When your sweet tooth does speak up and beg you for that bar of chocolate or lolly, don’t ignore it completely. With the help of honey, coconut sugar, dates and maple syrup you can still have your treat and feel good about it too.
